As always one talented winner will enjoy a fabulous prize from our lovely Marina from Cottage Crafts.
You can interpret the theme whichever way you like ;). Corsets, dress forms, accessories, sewing... whatever your imagination tells you.... or you can try a little play with words like I did...:).
I have been really busy lately with Christmas related makes... as surprising as it may sound at this time of year lol ;). And I was desperately looking for some inspiration as I needed to make a wedding anniversary card for one VERY special couple ;). And if they are reading this, thank you so much for being such wonderful people, you guys are a perfect Mr & Mrs and you friendship means a world to us! xxx ;->.
I rummaged through my stamps collection and then suddenly the inspiration struck lol ;). I dug out all PaperArtsy stamps I have and my project is a bit of a "showcase" of my PaperArtsy collection ;). I used Clocks 5, Hot Picks HP1009 and Hot Picks HPXT02EZ. Can you see the woman's face hidden behind the flowers?
The dress forms were die cut from mountboard using TH die, covered with distressed inks and stamped with Timber Brown StazOn. I looove mountboard, it works beautifully with distress inks... Then the images were coloured with cosmic shimmer water colour paints. I just love, love, LOVE the subtle shimmer these paints give!
The ticket and clock stamps are by Crafty Individuals. And can you see the clock hands made from little scissors embellishments...? Aren't they cutest ever???? lol :). I've also used stamps from the Artistic Stamper, Stempelglede, Prima, docrafts and some small alpha stamps.
The papers are DCWV Mariposa collection. To embellish I added some Prima flowers, shabby resin frames, pins and buttons and machine stitching.
I hope you can join us for this challenge and I can't wait to see what you create! But don't forget, no digi stamps - traditional stamping only! And if you want to be totally WOOOOWed make sure to visit the challenge blog to see what my Fasionable Sisters have created. The DT samples are simply mind blowing!!!
