Damask and Brocade

My first "encounter" with damask was Purple Onion Designs' Vintage Damask Background stamp. It's always been a favorite, and I decided to pull it out and ink it up for Moxie Fab World's Damask and Brocade Challenge.





I used Spellbinders Labels 18 and sponged some shadow ink before removing the paper from the die. After stamping the sentiment, I added some faux stitching and pearls.

I made the roses with some cream colored rayon seam binding and layered on peach and green bows for a bit of contrast.



I'm also entering this card in Ribbon Carousel's Challenge 54 to make or use some flowers on your card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Whatever you have planned, I hope you're having a great weekend!
