This card started with a shabby chic & sewing theme based on  the Vintage Journey All Sewn Up. .  I had all these ideas running around in my head and I definitely didn't end up where I thought I would.  The inking on my die cuts are

I started with the Darkroom door chicken wire background stamp stamped in gray.  I die cut the dress form and weathered clock and inked them up with a mix of cool peri and gray inks.  I added a little heart die cut from an old quilt.

I died the rosettes to match and added the cherish.  I decided it still needed something and added the angel wings which I am not sure whether I like.  In real life this is very soft and pretty but didn't photograph that well.

  7. This is utterly delightful Sue, the wonderful elements and colouring is gorgeous and what really attracts me is the amazing contrast of the very feminine fabric pieces and the chicken wire, very clever.
