SASSY CRAFTS - Dovecraft Challenge

I deciced to try a new "swing" design for this card using my Eazi-score board.
I used Dovecraft Charcoal collection papers for backing one side of my black cardstock and then using Dovecraft Milano, mosaic punch on the black charcoal paper collection paper punched 6 blocks. I then layered this onto miricard.

I used a Sissix die dress and accessories (38-1198) to cut the dress stand on white card and again for the dress neck and belt which I then stuck PMI glitter strands and cut the dress from Dovecraft Laura Ashley contemporary papers and shoes too!!

Thus my 3 Dovecraft product are:

Charcoal paper collection
Laura Ashley traditional paper collection
Milano mosaic punch


This weeks challenge was POSTAGE ART and I have just got the limited edition Egyptian stamps by Hampton Art so I enjoyed trying them out..... I chalked the backgroung with shimmer I Kan dee chalks

Love these as they're quick to do!!
