Wrap it! Tie it! Ruffle it up!

I decided to ink up JJ Desperate Housewife for this super fun challenge.

I stamped JJ desperate Housewife with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then coloured her up using my Copic markers. I layered her onto a die cut piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper using 3D foam squares. Then I took my Crop-a-Dile and punched 3 small holes around the one corner and threaded 2 colors of Baker’s Twine through them. Then I just unravelled the edges (somewhat trying to mimic a dust bunny). I went ahead and stamped a polka dot background and then scuffed up the whole card face using the same Tim Holtz Distress Ink that I used to stamp the dots. Next, I went ahead and used Sookwang tape to adhere a strip of thick brown grosgrain ribbon and finished it off by adding a bow that I made using red grosgrain ribbon. I stamped this uber fun sentiment onto the card using Timber Brown Stazon Ink and adhered my image panel using more 3D foam squares. Then I simply trimmed the edge of the die cut piece so it would not hang over the edge of the card.

I really do get a kick out of JJ Desperate Housewife every time I ink her up...and the sentiments in this stamp set are all hilarious.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon. Take Care,
