Tainted...

Here's another card from yesterday's crop.  


For this card I used Tiddly Ink's Tainted (found in her Gothic Pin Up section here).  She was colored with Copic Markers.  The papers are from Creative Imagination's Breathless Collection and DCWV's Rockstar paper pack.  The frame is from Melody Ross, and was painted with Tim Holtz's Crackle Paint in pewter. I had never stitched on a card before...and I absolutely love how it turned out!!  It was a lot of fun (especially stitching the transparent lacy rose paper over the red paper strip), and I can't wait to do it again.  It was also the first time I used the metallic Crackle Paints...super cool.  I really love the look.  Just beware, it takes a bit longer to dry than regular Crackle Paint.

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
(I know it's strips and not the traditional quilted squares...I hope it still counts!)
Tiddly Inks: You're a Stitch
Haunted Design House Macabre Monday: Gothic Pin Ups 
Tip Top Tuesday: Open Challenge

Starla, you have been one busy lady! This is precious - where did you get the background stamp behind her? Is that one of the new textures at StampTV? Looks great-
hugs,
