It's Friday and it's time for another challenge at The Stamp Man. This time we would like to see your Vintage projects and as usual for the winner there is a £10 voucher to spend in The Stamp Man online store.
I started with the background and stamped the dress form from the TH Haberdashery stamp set which I 'kissed' with one of the text stamps from the Reflections set. I then decided it looked a little bare on it's own so I stamped it again onto a Post It Note and masked off the original image. I then used another stamp from the same set and stamped over the masked off dress form. I used a page from an old book and distressed it with Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and Brushed Corduroy DI. I used the paint dabber resist technique and blended Tattered Rose DI over the top using a stamp from the French Marketplace set. The sentiment is from the TH Good Thoughts set and I've used 2 of the stamps from the Adverts set behind it.
I've used Crinoline for the flower which has been made using the TH Tattered Flowers Die and coloured with Distress Stains, the button is from my stash. I've stamped the spool and sewing book images onto Crinoline and done one or two cross stitches to hold them together.
I hope you get chanceo to join us for this challenge.
