As Janet Says...

Hey All!! Welcome to another awesome Saturday here at the DIS!! I'm so glad you're here with me today!!

I busted this beauty last night after I received my GIANT stash of new stamps from The Queen!! I placed an order and could not WAIT for them to show up!! So THRILLED that they did so fast!! I've been JONESING to work with the Bodice and Barb Wire stamp!!!

My iPod shuffle was on when I was making this so I ran with the song lyrics that were playing as I was creating. I was inspired by one of my all time I went with a psuedo-dark/romantic black and red theme with the lyric "that's the way love goes" - printed out in MS Word.

My background is simple red cardstock cut at 5.5 square. I then used the cover of an old sewing booklet that I heavily distressed and stitched all over the place using black and red thread. I stamped the Bodice in SU! Real Red ink on PTI white cardstock. I simply used my silver gel pen to add slight accents to the form as I really wanted it to stand on it's own. It's such a gorgeous stamp. I then matted it with another piece of the cover of the old booklet and then again with the red cardstock. I stitched it randomly twice and then ran my black ink pad over it to goth it up a little bit.
I then stamped the Barb Wire using my Essential Glue pad and coated it a few times in black Doodlebug glitter. I then matted that with the same red cardstock and added it to my card using 3-D foam adhesive.
My sentiment is printed in MS Word after I found this cool "Lewis Carroll" font free online. I matted that with yet another scrap of the sewing booklet cover and added it to the already dimentionalized Barb Wire Coil with more 3-D adhesive.

Honestly...I LOVE how it came out. And it's true sometimes "That's The Way Love Goes..."

Have a fabulously DARK weekend everyone!! ;)
