It's Time for Rubber

Good morning from a sunny Blackpool (and I have a headache from too much partying lol)!  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme this week is that we want to see your Rubber Images. Yep that's right no digis but good old fashioned rubber (or the clear plastic type as long as it is a physical stamp that you ink up - remember those??).  Here is mine:

I have used a sweet Lili of the Valley stamp that I have had for a while and this is the first time I used her!  I have coloured her with Copics and added some Viva Decor o the little flower centres that are floating around her. The paper is by Bearly Mine.  The tag is a Magnolia Doohickey and I made an envelope for it (saw it on Liz's blog and made my own).  The fern is a Memory Box die, butterfly Cheery Lynn and corners are Whimsy dies.  The flower is a Prima one I have had for a while and the corner filigree corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I have embossed the filigree corner with some Moonglow embossing powder and also swiped some on the doily behind the image.  I coloured the seam binding with some Spun Sugar Distress Ink which I spritzed on, the charm is from my stash.

We are being sponsored this challenge by Maria Levine (ippity) from Unity.  Please pop over to Card Makin' Mamas for some more inspiration from the fab DT.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
