Dream of Dahlia

This week I've been working again with a digi stamp from one of my favourite Sweet Pea Stamps artists - the amazingly talented Ching Chou Kuik. The image I've chosen to create with this week is called Dream of Dahlia:
I coloured the image with Promarkers and carefully cut it out:
I went with a vintage, shabby chic feel for my card with vintage lace patterned paper and distressed and stitched edges:
I layered my cut-out image over a large paper blossom and added some vintage-style ephemera, some die-cut foliage and a couple of filigree metal charms:
This beautiful stamp is available in both digi and red rubber format from the Sweet Pea Stamps store.
