Ooh La La

Well I'm back with another post today, largely because the weather has been rather windy and a little wet so I've been doing some more crafting.
I have a card to share which fits several challenges:

The card features a slightly saucy showgirl from the Kanban Moulin Divas - Belle Femme - MDS01 clear stamp set and I stamped her with VersaFine Crimson on cream card. I coloured her with Promarkers and added diamonds - well they are a girl's best friend! I set the image panel on a pink, then a red mat.

I stamped a background paper using the same crimson ink and peach parchment card and one of Fiskars versatile new border stamps which is intended for their new continuous stamp roller system but I took one look and saw lots more possibilities. The stamp just fits my largest acrylic block and this particular stamp which is called Elegant Vine lends itself very well to seamless repeat stamping and made a very elegant paper.

I finished off with a central border of scallop cut metallic red embossed card, some lace and pearls and a sentiment from the Kanban stamp set.

My card is for the following challenges:
Sunday Stampers - Red, Red Wine
Paper Sundaes - Vintage Or Shabby Chic
Sweet Stampin' - Ooh La La

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx
