The Paper Shelter Challenge #308 - Layers, a bunch of them

This week I chose the Cute Dressmaker digital stamp. I coloured her in with Copics.  In line with the theme of layers, and bunches of them, I added layers of different papers which remind me of plaids and polka dot printed fabrics.  The background paper is from the stunning DCWV Lace and Linen paper pack which has a 3D look.  I distressed the edges of the papers by tearing them using a patterned ruler and adding Antique Linen distress ink.  I also used a corner embossing punch on the image. I have added some sewing themed buttons and lace flowers. I cut one lace flower and used the petals as leaves and a variety of other flowers and sticky pearls.  My sentiment is part of the Kaiser Craft Birthday stamp set.  I tried my hand at some Metallique Alchemy Art on the laser cut sewing machine and dressform and they turned out quite nice.
