PIO#34 - Designer Paper

It's time for a new Pile It On challenge and I think that unless you're a clean and simple fanatic you're going to like it.  We want you to use designer paper.  We don't care how many you use, use as many as you like.  Just have fun doing it.

We've got a new sponsor this week,  Red Rubber Designs.  They supplied the design team members with an image.  This is "Who Am I".  I don't know about you but I like it, a lot.  It just cracks me up and it is very me. I love the vintage design and the in your face attitude.  

It was a lot of fun making this card.  I sponged Ranger Tea Dye ink around the image layer to give it an aged look and decided NOT to tear or rip the edges.  I'll give that a go on another day.   The Graphic 45 paper also has a vintage look.  A little ribbon lace, charm and bling to dress it up and it's all done.

Here's the deets:
stamp -  Red Rubber Designs "Who Am I"
ink - printer; Ranger "Tea Dye"
paper - Bazzill "Yukon Gold" and "Pinecone" card stock; Graphic 45 "Once Upon a Springtime Collection - Pixie Post", Botanicabella Collection - Dragonfly Duet" and
"Christmas Past Collection - Let It Snow" designer papers

miscellaneous - copics; Stampin' Up ribbon lace; twine; bee hive twine; bling flourishes
