Take Time To Dream!

Hello!  Its so nice of you to hop on by and see what I am up to!  I haven't blogged for a while but should be doing more posts - at least for the next few days! I have challenges to enter before they finish!



I love, love, love this image!  Its IndigoBlu and was free in a set with a magazine a while back, how cool was that!  All the stamps used on this card are IndigoBlu.  The background was a piece I had already inked with Distress Inks and the pieces of card I used for the main image, butterflies and letters were all snippets of card left over from previous inky projects.  The background was stamped with lace from Nottingham Lace and watches from Take The Time in Imperial Purple Versafine.  I then popped the piece through my Grand Calibre with a swirl mask to add some background embossing and gently inked over the top to bring out the detail.  The lady and letters for 'Dream' (Circus Alphabet) were stamped in Black Versafine and embossed with clear powder with the butterflies, again from Circus Alphabet, stamped in Purple Versafine and embossed with clear powder.  I then fussy cut them all out.  The lady was popped up on double sided tape and the letters, butterflies and sequins were added using Cosmic Shimmer PVA.  'Take time to'  are Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.  You can't see it very well in the photo but I have added loads of Star Dust Stickles so there is lots of lovely sparkle.  You can't dream without a bit of sparkle!
