I had started off with white card, blending Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks to shade the paper. This was to reflect the colour of the Ballerina's shoes. I stamped text, number and flourish stamps with the same inks to add more texture and interest to my paper.
I punched out 2 strips of paper and shaded one with Victorian Velvet and the other with Tattered Rose. Glue one onto the front and other to the back to give another feeling of depth.
I die cut my rose and stamped on the flourish stamp in Victorian Velvet and blended Tattered Rose in parts of the die cut assembling my rose. I added a little cheesecloth and pearl stamens to it. My curls of paper are created by winding a strip of paper around a cocktail stick and shading with distress ink before releasing it.
I used the waste from cutting out my flourish die to use as a stencil with distress ink for more textures.

Hope you have enjoyed my post and have a lovely creative weekend.
