Cardabilites #97

 Hello! I loved this  sketch from Cardabilites and wanted to do lots of stamping with layering. I took inspiration from the newsprint background of the sketch and stuck to the rest pretty literally. Here's my take:

For my script background I did a second generation stamping so that the color would be very light. Over that I used a bit darker ink, stamped off as well for my little damask images. I then stamped the dress form over that and then the double ended banner and sentiment. Since this card has minimal layering of paper I didn't want my leaves to overpower the images so I die cut them out of vellum. Pearls finish it off. I do hope you like it and will come play along with us! Thank you so much for stopping by:)

Leah, this is beautiful! I love the simple yet very vintage look. The vellum was perfect for the leaves gives a very soft look!
