Today's post features the Creative Expressions Antique Dressforms Stamp set. This is one of the stamp sets that will be in the shows on Create & Craft tomorrow at 11am and 4pm. Hope you can join me.
I stamped the image using Crushed Olive Distress Ink. I used a damp paintbrush to pull some of the colour out on the leaves. I cut the image out using an oval nestie and inked with Dusty Concord Distress Ink while still in the die. I cut a mat from navy card using a scalloped oval nestie.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Crushed Olive Distress Ink and cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two and made a faux nestie out of navy card.
For the background I inked up a piece of ivory card with Dusty Concord, Crushed Olive and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I spritzed some water into my hand and splattered it over the card. I dried with a heat gun and then splatted some lemon juice onto the card. I heat set the splats (it takes a while for them to turn brown. I then spritzed one of the dressform stamps with water and stamped them in a line across the card (you can just about make them out.
I assembled the card as shown adding some ruffled Vintage Ribbon in Sulphur Blue and a bow made from a length of Sulphur Blue and a length of Moss Green Vintage Ribbon. I topped the bow off with a button from my stash threaded with some Baker's Twine from the Primary Set.
Hope you like the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
