Spring In Fashion.....

Hi Everyone,

I had a little playtime this eve after work so I decided to join in the Challenge over at Crafty Individuals "Spring In Fashion"  I hope you like it...



I covered the heart in Tim Holtz designer pattern papers (Idea-ology)... then stamped over wth Oxford Expression stamps (dress form & corsetry)... and some Whimsy Stamps! The tag on the heart is from Crafty Individuals as is the stamped main image plate CI-324 the image is coloured with pro markers, the flowers are from my stash, the burlap flower I sprinkled with fran-tage ( aged aqua & aged Ivory) I got a bit carried away with the Fran-Tage and had a wee sprinkle here & there...The rest of the embellishments I had in my stash.....
Thank you so much for your visit today... Have a great week
Hugs May x x x
