Those of you who know me will be a little surprised to see pink, I'm not a big fan, but this stamp just called out to me to use it !
I started by stamping the background using the Tim Holtz French Marketplace stamp set and the birds are from the Darkroom Door Love Birds set. I blended Victorian Velvet DI over the card and then I gave it a coat of Gesso which I wiped off with a baby wipe. For the embossed panel I used the Cuttlebug Victoria EF, I rubbed Tattered Rose DI over the inside of the folder and then stamped inside it using a stamp from the Tim Holtz Reflections set, then embossed the card.
I watercoloured the main image, which is a Stampedous stamp called Rose Corset, with DI. I added some tiny self adhesive pearls down the front of the corset. The ticket is cut from acetate and then stamped with black Stazon. The rose is made from a piece of the embossed panel using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and I've cut two of the smaller flowers from Crinoline and tipped it with Victorian Velvet DI. The lace, ribbon and stick pin are from my stash.
