tea-dye and twill tape...

Can you guess what I was up to this afternoon? Got a nice stash of twill tape from the local thrift store and dyed up a batch..It's one of my fave things to add to cards...love the texture and its shabby feel once its had a nice soak in some tea.
Here's another card based off of one of my fave sketch sites...as you probably have read from previous posts, I recently have taken to using sketch sites for inspiration and to challenge myself. And let me tell you this site has soo much to offer..I have much to look over and attempt...
I just adore this sketch...can use it over and over again...features some of my fave elements...lets hope you like my take on it this week...
 Again, a lot of my favourite things used here..some (non dyed) twill tape, stamps, distress ink...flowers and half pearls...Mmmm...my fave P.T.I stamp set was put into use again..Background Basics-Text style...my fingers just seem to reach for them  every time. They get a lot of use around my studio...I just can't get enough...Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes add a little whirl at the top there...Stamped my new Stampology journal block on cream card stock and used another fave P.T.I set (Giga Guide Lines) to stamp a pattern with Versamark in the background...little touches that make me so happy..
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do...
Off now to make some scrunched seam binding:)
