A Lady Dancing

Well so much for me trying to catch up this week, I'm not sure where the days have gone to!!! This card is for four challenges as I'm so behind..... I have used the sketch from Penny Black Week 40, the theme this week on Stamp Something is green, Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 43 is to use Gems and finally this weeks ABC challenge is F for flowers.

The penny black stamp is from the 12 days of christmas clear set which I picked up for half price in January! She represents the 9 ladies dancing, but the handy thing about these stamps is that you can use the images all year round as they are not especially christmasy. I coloured the stamp with distress inks and have mounted it onto layers cut with nesties. The middle layer has been embossed with my swiss dots folder and i have doen a little doodling on the bottom layer. For a bit of added dimension the bottom and top layers have been raised up on foam pads.

Supplies:
Card/Paper: White and pink card, Dovecraft - retro flowers
Stamp: Penny black - 12 days of Christmas set
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, worn lipstick, vintage photo, walnut stain and weathered wood.
Embellishments: Jewels, ribbon, primas, pearl brads, spacer and charm
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots embossing folder, water brush, small hole punch, scalloped scissors
Thanks for looking x
