Allsorts 457 and Papercrafters' Linky Party 5

Good morning and happy Saturday!
It's time again for the new Allsorts challenge, Mervi is hosting this week with the theme of "Ladies Only" in celebration of International Women's Day on March 8th. We have two wonderful prizes lined up for Allsorts challenge this week, so hopefully you can come join us! This week we are being sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique who are offering a wonderful prize, plus we're also having a clear stamp set to give away.

Don't forget it's also time for a new Papercrafters' Linky Party. As always anything papercraft goes and I can't wait to see what you've been making. The linky and last week's top pick is at the end of this post.

I love Penny Black's fashionista stamp line, they are so much fun to color and I love the art style. This image is part of the set Patisserie by Penny Black. The sentiment is from the set Sprinkles and Smiles. My Tonic stamp platform was used for stamping which ensures I get a solid impression. 

By the way, Penny Black just released a couple more of these "fashion girl" stamps, and I just listed them  in my Etsy shop along with the others seen below. 
I have a limited quantity only, and sorry but I currently only ship within the United States. 


I wanted to use one of the new girls for today's card, but the way how my luck worked, the package arrived just after I finished my Design Team card. Doesn' it always go that way??

Back to my card, I heat embossed the image on Bristol Vellum Card using Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder. I've also embossed the sentiment. I inked the edges using antique linen Distress Ink, used a script stamp on the background (old by Stampin Up) and also a stencil from Tim Holtz Mixed Media Butterfly stamps and stencil set. Coloring was done with Kuretake Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and a Zig Detailer Waterbrush.  By the way, if you're looking to purchase just a few of these watercolor pens, check out Blick Art Materials. They have a good variety of these markers at good prices and free shipping if your order is $35 or more. The colors I used on today's image are Oatmeal, Mid Brown, Pale Pink, Light Carmine, Light Violet, Pale Green and Light Gray.
Blick Art Materials is also my go to place for Copic markers and Copic Various Ink refills. 

I layered the image panel onto black printed designer paper, distressed some more, then layered onto another patterned paper. The card base is kraft card stock by Stampin Up. To finish off the card I added a sentiment sticker from Tim Holtz's Quotations Metallic Stickers set and finished off with a button and twine.

I am following these challenge themes:

Morning Ellie,

I am a bit speechless and I can tell you that doesn't happen very often!. I am so touched by your words and thank you so much for them and I am so happy to know that my inky dabblings have offered inspiration.

Back to your card for this weeks challenge and it's clever how you have used a modern image yet given it the 'edgy' vintage feel with the distressed edges. Also love the sentiment arrangement at the top.

Will link up shortly, meantime have a good weekend and thank you again.
