Taylored Expressions Challenge #108!

Happy Friday! Seeing that I can't seem to put away my fabric these days I thought I would do a sewing themed card. The material girl collection from Cosmo Cricket is so adorable!
I thought Taylor's sketch looked a little quilt/patchwork like so I went with that look.
The iron image and sentiment are from CHF's Domestic Love set. I stamped the iron in versacraft ink and then just gave it a blast from my heat gun to set the ink before I colored it with my copic markers.
Here is a close shot of the coloring. I even went in with my spica black pen afterwards and highlighted the handle a little. It is hard to capture that shimmer on camera but it looks really sweet in real life!
Here are all my card deets:
Stamps:
Domestic Love (ATC) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:

Black Versacraft (Tsukineko)
Paper:
Material Girl (Cosmo Cricket)
Vanilla (Neenah)
Accessories:
