Fiery Dancer

I am entering this card in~

I only recently received these stamps and have been dying to use them...the idea was to have a dramatic, fiery background in a cave setting. I guess like lava.  And then to keep the femininity through all that drama. I tried to show the strength of a woman.  I think the rose and the dancers help with this.  The stamps were masked and stamped in tuxedo black ink.  The background is wild honey stains, and fire brick red and spiced marmalade distress inks.  The cave is torn black cardstock and the rose and tags and bits of ribbon are from my stash...the words are stamped in fired brick DI and are from the dancers set.  The flower behind the rose is highlighted with stickles.  Enjoy!
