Kanban Fashionista Stamps

Hello everybody.  I hope you are all well and getting ready for Christmas?  It's a busy old time for all of us and crafting seems to take a back seat, doesn't it?

I have a colleague at work who's birthday is on 2nd January, which is before we have to go back after our Christmas break, so I have to remember to be well prepared so she can have her card before we finish work.  I'm not usually very organized, but this year I have managed to get things sorted well in advance, just for a change!

I created this card using one of Kanban's Fashionista range of stamps.  This particular image is from the 'Vivienne' set.  It is stamped onto Clarity's stamping card and coloured in with Promarkers.  The dress itself has been slightly decoupaged to give some dimension to the card.  I've added some faux stitches around the edge to give it a feel of a dressmaking theme.

This is the dress in closer detail:

I seem to be going through an orange phase at the moment.  I think it looks quite dramatic against the black though and makes a change from red and black.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you drop by, please leave a comment as they always make me feel good :-)

I have entered this card in the latest challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges ~ Challenge #10 ~ Dressmaking/Corsets/Accessories.  I am hoping that it qualifies as I suppose it's not strictly speaking a dressmakers dummy, but perhaps they will think it's close enough?  Let's hope so anyway!

What a lovely card, your colleague is sure to like it. I've ordered these stamps from C&C but still waiting for them to come.
