Double Warp

Howdy, folks!  I'm back today with another beautiful image from Prickley Pear's new release.  I absolutely LOVE all the new beautiful vintage images that were released, I've got several of them on my wish list.

For this card, I combined my focal image with lots of PTI backgrounds.  There's lots of details, so I hope I remember them all...

I stamped the card base with PTI's Newsprint stamps in pink ink and then sponged the edges with distress ink to age it.  I stamped a piece of kraft cardstock with the largest dots from PTI's Polka Dot Basics II using pink acrylic paint, then I swiped the edges with white and pink acrylic paint for a shabby chic feel.  On a simply chartreuse Mat Stack 4 die cut, I embossed the dress form and then stamped Text Style print over it with distress ink.  For my bow, I double looped crinkly ivory ribbon, added a twine bow using a piece of twine that I colored with a copic and a pink ribbon rosette topped off with a bright green epoxy brad.  The two Maya Road stick pins were colored with a copic marker to coordinate with the rest of the card colors.

Whew, lots to remember!  Thanks for stopping by!
