Material Girl

I am back with my second card for Card Design Class next week, using the fabulous Material girl stamp set from Crafty Secrets.  How divine is this sewing machine - it just had to take 'center stage'.

 The image has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black. The frame by Stampin' Up has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in London Fog.  I have used IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Delicata™ Pigment Ink for sponging - it has the the right amount of shimmer for this nostalgic card.

 The addition of lace, pearls, button and twine always add a nostalgic touch - all things we have at home.

  7. What a gorgeous nostalgic card! I love the color palette you chose and I was completely floored with your talented layering techniques! At first glance, I thought the sewing machine was recessed into almost like a shadow-box setting, but then I realized that's just how you expertly used ink and shading. Pretty incredible and I adore everything about this card. I'm so glad that you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
