Garden Chic

Time for my next creation using the fabulous Eco Green Garden Chic stamp set (made entirely from recycled rubber) from Creative Expressions for this weeks DT piece.
I added the bird image in the background, firstly clear embossed and then stamped with coffee Archival Ink. The background was then coloured with Distress Ink wild honey and machine stitching added to the outside edge.
The bodice was stamped with coffee Archival, cut out and sponged with Distress Ink and again machine stitchine added for a little dimension. I punched out two squares from white card and added part of the dress form image to each square and coloured with Distress Ink.
Two wings from Tim's Idea-ology range (Adornments Regal) coloured with Alcohol Inks were added to the bottom corner to add a little more interest.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
