Breeze at Dies to Die for

Happy Tuesday everyone!  For me it really is a happy Tuesday and for once my post is not scheduled because I'm off work until Thursday, yay!  So lots of crafting time for me !

Today I'd like to share a card I made for my DT inspiration over at Dies to Die for.

I used the delectable 'Breeze' a Saturated Canary stamp in rubber, produced by Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  Isn't she just gorgeous?  I coloured her with my Copics this time but I'm itching to colour her in distress inks too, she's so lovely to colour.
Skin : E11, E00, E000, E000, R20, R11
Hair: E50, E51, E31, E35, E37
Dress: BG70. BG72, BG75, E41. E42, E43


The papers are by Inkido, I love them so much I had a hard time cutting them and then when I went to link them I discovered they were out of stock, horror! There are others in the range that are very similar though and just as pretty. I distressed and inked all the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink and sewed them with Gutterman Top Stitch thread.


I used some beautiful Prima flowers, some gorgeous pleated organza ribbon, some gold lace which is just too lovely and I managed not to cover completely, some Prima bling and a beautiful brad to hold my seam binding bow in place.  As always links to items in the shop are at the end of this post.


I added some tiny Memory Box butterflies and some Liquid Pearls to finish off my image, and my sentiment.
The sentiment is from a whimsy stamp set and has been cut with a Marianne Design set of dies that I also used the cut the circle framing the image and the aperture for the inside of the card below.


Well that's all from me today, I'll be back tomorrow with a post for Kraftin' Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday challenge.  Until then, have fun crafting! : ) x x
