Va-va-vroom

I just adore this free digi stamp from Floweret, and thought it would be fun to paper piece it for this week's Paper Pretties Challenge. I decided to go way outside my comfort zone and went PINK for this week's Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers.

I also played a little Tic-Tac-Toe with the Card Crafter's Circle (see the board below). I chose the right-to-left diagonal: Embossing, Digi, Bling.

I dry-embossed the bottom of the Kraft piece using a Tim Holtz Texture Fades folder, and ink-distressed it a bit with Rose Bud Memento ink.

The stitching is actually a stamp from the great Stitchery Doo set by SP & Company. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and heat-embossed it with Kaleidoscope embossing powder from Stampendous! for a little bit of Bling. I also heat-embossed the Hero Arts sentiment, with MS pink powder.

For the paper-piecing, I used about every piece of pink paper in my stash! Eight papers in total, plus a white piece that I built onto. The skin is actually a light pink... I added color to the hair, light & seat with Copics.

I strung some bakers twine across the background, and popped up the image piece with foam tape. I added a pink gemstone to her helmet for a final touch, and she's OFF!

Thanks for visiting!
Update: Many thanks to Floweret for spotlighting this card on her blog!
