Dirty Girl Challenge



Let me tell you - the Dirty Girls are getting my creative juices flowing - LOL!!! When I saw Jenn's *Inspiration Piece* today - I couldn't hold back and I had to make another card!!!

I have the perfect Stamp from *Innovative Stamp Creations* called *Artsy Victorian* to play along. Btw - it's the same Stamp Set that I have used on my CC176 card - just a different image!!! Isn't it gorgeous???

First I have inked the image with *Craft* Basic Black and then sprinkled it with *Clear* Embossing Powder to give it a richer, elegant look!!!

If you have not used the Craft Ink's yet - definitely put them on your next order- my favorites are the
Chocolate Chip and the Basic Black!!! You will love them - I promise!!!

Anyway - I have trimmed right around the image and layered it onto Basic Black CS. This panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals. Next I have added Certainly Celery onto another Basic Black CS and adhered it to the Whisper White CS base. The card measures 5" x 5".

The sentiment is from another *Innovative Stamp Creations* Set called *Flair of Summer*.
I have inked it up with Basic Black. To finish it all off - I have added a large Half Pearl in the center of the image.

Wow - I just realize I have not used any Ribbon....LOL!!! Hope you like this card as much as I do??? ~TFL~

Hi Silke:

You never cease to amaze me with your artistic talent. Love the embossing. I'm a Craft Ink fan, too. I would add Close to Cocoa to your list (if you haven't already) . . . great effects. The pearl is the perfect touch. Mary
