Stamp Something-Challenge No1

Thank you for this challenge "First". In honour of your new challenge blog, I thought I would branch out and try something I have wanted to do for ages, but never had the nerve the above is the result. I have always thought that collage work was way above me, but nothing ventured nothing gained, I have also never used stampboard on a card before, not too sure about the result, but any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I really enjoyed doing this card. Down to the basics the stamp is from Graphicus, she has been coloured with Distress Inks, The three labels are all Crafty Individuals Stamps and have been stamped with Sepia Versafine the lace on the label is the same as that at the top I just run one of my ink pads over it. The lovely embellishment is by Dove of the East from Graphicus. I inked up the stampboard with purple, mauve and brown chalk inks and then used 3 layers of UFEP sprinkled some glitter in on the last embossing process and then stamped with the headress stamp.
Hope you like it. TFL
