This is the first time I have used these stamps. I had previously posted this card where I used a dragonfly image from the same sheet of stamps. I really don't know what the sheet name is. I was just on my way out of a rubberstamp show here on Long Island last year, having already exceeded my spending limit (like I actually have one of those, ha!) and I just wanted to take a peek at this table I walked past earlier when it was crowded. Well, I saw some samples with this dragonfly and I had to have these stamps! They have some really great images and I am glad I finally pulled these out-they are really cool looking! Hope everyone is having a great night!

ISC Blog Challenge
I can't believe it's been 5 days since my last post...I am really slackin'! I finished up a challenge for Innovative Stamp Creations that was posted on Shelly's blog and finally had time to photograph and post them. The challenge was to create a tag or tag art. I guess mine is a little of both since it's a tag that's mounted as art. I used shipping tags I bought at Staples and stamped the dresses in Versa Fine black. They are colored with Copics and accented with a Sakura Stardust pen. I cut them out and popped them up on layers from the Basic Grey Infuse line (on the pink dress below the pp is BG Sultry). I also stamped randomly the same dress image randomly on each panel in black pigment and embossed with Walnut Stain distress ep. The ribbon and fibers are from my stash...no brand in particular. I added accents with dew drops and Prima and Bazzill flowers. I finished the look by inking the edges of both panels with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.
