Corsets and Roses
Its a wintry snowy day here in Scotland, I am just pleased that the airport is open as my sister is flying in today, as a surprise for my parents wedding anniversary. The airport was closed on Thursday so we were watching the snow come yesterday rather anxiously wondering what to expect!
This is a card I finished last night. I have stamped onto sticky back canvas with a "Stampendous" stamp, and I must have been feeling a tad crazy because I then hand sewed all the beads on, and did a little stitching with metallic threads ... and finally added a little netting. and I have used the base of the "tim holtz - dress form" to create a manikin.
All the papers are Melissa Francis ..... I know its a tiny detail, ... but the little adverts I have cut out and put at the bottom right of the card, are for dress making classes, I am sure that no one would notice, but I know that detail is there and it makes me happy ( you know small things please small minds!!! LOL) ..... to create the little reels of thread I have used "Lorali stamps" and then twisted some thread round them.
Finally I used the "Tim Holtz - weathered clock" die on glitter card, and the paper roses are done with a "sizzix - spiral roses die" then I have just added a few embellies to finish it off. .... oh also everything has been inked using "distress ink - spun sugar" and antique linen.
In all honesty, I am not completely sure of the overall effect, but I thought I would show it anyway, after all I am here to live and learn.
