born to fly - GM07

Hello my friends. It's time for another grungy Monday card. This challenge is found on Linda Ledbetter's blog, Studio L3, and it's all about celebrating the techniques and products of Tim Holtz. This week's technique can be found here. I think I need to get some ink refills for my distress ink pads. My background is rather pale.

I stamped on the dress form with a stamp from Club Stamp and the wings are stamped with lady of grace (Stampington). The sentiment is computer generated.

In order to fit the dress form on the card, I cut off the stand and tucked it underneath the bodice.

I did a lot of faux stitching and sponging along all the edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Great card! I think the background is perfect and the card is very colourful. I love all the faux-stitched details too.

Lovely! The stitch lines are great and really give a feeling of motion. I have to remember to do that!

Nice use of colors, the more soldily colored images against the same muted colors of the background.
