Pretty Woman

Good afternoon everyone!
2nd post today. 

I want to share a project I made for a lady in Australia.  
Few months ago, I won a challenge at No Matter Which Challenge.
Part of the sponsored prize is this beautiful stamp called 
"Pretty Woman" by Kitty-lane.
I had promised Fay that I would create something for her using this stamp.

The gift set consists of a book card and a tea cozy.
I colored the image with Copic markers, machine stitched and distressed all paper edges.
I added half doily and pom pom ribbon in the bottom half of the background,
and tore up strips of DP for the upper part.
I used CLP's March Sketch for this book card.


Dies used are from Spellbinders, Memory Box, and Marianne.
Designer Papers are Pion Design.

I added a short strip of Webster's Pages ribbon in the upper right corner
and attached 3 metal jump rings and blue crystal drops.

 I decorated inside the card with Pion Design Paper Cutouts,
vintage cluny lace and die cuts.

I made a tea cozy back in January, I cut out an extra set of fabric for later use.
The fabric color is perfect for the image I colored.

The image was stamped on TAP paper with Archival Ink 
and colored with Copic markers.
I transferred the image onto a piece of white cotton by ironing.

The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm Ivory Vintage Style Fine Scallop Lace; 32mm Vintage Style Fine Cluny Lace;
17mm Ivory Vintage Style Fine Cluny Lace; 20mm 'Angelica' Ivory Tulle Lace;
38mm Vintage Pink Fluted Edge Sheer Ribbon; Cream Seam Binding Ribbon;
Blue Sweet Heart blossom; Pink Cherry Blossom;
White Stamens; K&G Beaded Ivory Rose

Thanks so much for stopping by again. 


I wish to enter this project in the following challenges:

Oh Katie. I think the mojo has returned. These are absolutely beautiful. Are you sending these to Austrailia? You should have an artist display at work to show off all your work. Amazing. You really are so creative and artistic. I just look at your creations and dream that I could be so good. You reallly have a gift.

The book cards are so much fun to make, aren't they?! Gorgeous take on the sketch and of course one has to love those papers. Beautifully decorated on the inside as well and don't get me started on the fabric creation...thought you said you hadn't had much time for crafting lately? :-) A whole lot more than me though by the look of it!
