I like to think my Twenties ladies have the Girl Power required by That's Crafty, but without losing their sense of fashion or feminity!

I stamped my image with a mixture of distress ink pad (Tattered Rose) and water based pens, aiming for a no line colouring effect. I had difficulties hitting the right spot: whilst inking, the stamp is a mirror image and it's quite hard to tell apart dress from bag or umbrella...

My base is embossed Cored'ination (Flourish folder by Die'sire) to which I added a strip of Mulberry paper (yep still have oodles of the stuff), a die-cut border and corner (Spellbinders).
To frame the image I used a Martha Stewart PATP punch and backed it with a remnant of a masterboard (as old as the mulberry if I recall).
I made the flower with stamped tissue paper, die-cut with a Spellbinders Flower Nesties set, and sprayed it with a shimmer mist before scrunching it up.

I am also entering the Fashionable Stamping, Vintage Stamping and Wedodoobadoo challenges.

Zigazig ah! (cause all I can think about is the Spice Girls, not that I liked them much)
