Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #11

Tickled Pink 7 Comments »

I created this card for the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge 11.  The challenge was “Off the scrap desk”  To embellish your card with items not intended for cardmaking.  The item I used are the black bra hooks.  Those bad boys were harder to get secured on there then I thought they would be.  First, I tried using mini brads, but they were still to big.  Then I tried to just sew them on, but I couldn’t get the secure enough to add the ribbon.  I finally ended up sewing AND glueing them down, which seemed to work out ok.  I was going to add them all the way down the panel, but realized I didn’t leave myself enough room by the buttom of her skirt to do so, so I just added the three.  I stitched the rectangle panels and I cut 50′s Lilith out for dimension.  Added some glitter pearls and some stickles.  Hope you like!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:  Stamp; Tickled Pink 50′s Lilith; Paper: The Paper Studio, Doodlebug Designs; brads, thread, bar hooks, ribbon, stickles, foam tape. Colored with Copics.
