Denim Party Dress - SDC30 Recycle

This week over on the Stampotique Designers Blog, Valerie is challenging you to use something Recycled on your project, this weeks SDC is open to any stamp company!  Grab your stamps and recycle something on your project, then add your link to the Stampotique Designers Blog for your chance to win a $30 Stampotique Originals gift certificate.

This is one challenge that had me thinking....Normally when I recycle, I create some type of altered item, but looking through my stash, nothing was jumping out on me, so I decided to use up some of my DH's Denim Shirt I had in my "might use later" pile.

I stamped the Pretty Party Dress in Black Archival on the Jean Shirt, cut it out, cutting off the hanger.  I stamped the Damask in Stormy Sky Distress Ink to add a pattern to the jean material.  I added the dress to a Tim Holtz Hanger and added it to the card with dimensionals.  To create the Flower, I dyed a piece of the material with Ranger Distress Stain (Fired Brick) and cut with the Tattered Floral Die, added a pattern with the Mesh background stamp.  To finish off the card, I added some Faux Stitching to the Cosmo Cricket papers and added the fun sentiment, also from Stampotique.
