Greetings and salutations, this is my DT piece for the latest TIOT challenge which is feminine and fancy. This was a difficult one for me as I had real issues with the stamp I was trying to use which would not work. So frustrating, I ended up using distress ink and spraying it with water, I really like the effect it caused. I later found that Staz-on works really well on these stamps but that was AFTER I made the card.
The flowers have tiny cogs and wheels from watch parts glued in their centre, using glossy accents to fix them. The background of the card is stamped with roses with a water misted stamp and distress inks then I stamped over a Tim Holtz script stamp in a style that I hope looks like letter paragraphs. There is also a tiny bit of lace on the bottom of the image. I am also entering this to:
Dilly Beans: for Mom
Simon Says stamp: Happy mail
