Inky Doodles, fabulous fabrics

Hi crafting friends , weather is still rubbish here in the UK, lots of rain and on the cool side ,I'm sick of it!
Thank goodness for crafting. I was watching create and craft on the tv the other day and saw a lovely lady called Sarah demonstrating some new stamps (well new to me ) they are called Inky Doodles . Her cards where just fab with a folky homespun look I love. I went to her website (free postage if over £15 ) and bought a set of polymer stamps called fabulous fabrics 2 stamp set. Seems like I bagged the last set.
They are wonderful for creating background papers.  There are single stiching stamps to , as shown on my card, these are going to be so useful.
I used some tim holtz distressing ink ,rusty hinge , to give them a vintage faded fabric look. The bird stamp and sentiment are pink petticoat and where free in a card mag. I've coloured with promarkers to match the papers, added a ribbon , flower buttons from do craft and the clouds (this was found out by chance ) are the same background paper ,punched with a large woodware flower punch, cut in half,   inked and mounted on foam pads.
