FSC - Dressmaking, Corsets and Accessories

Well it's a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! For Challenge # 10, our theme is Dressmaking/Corsets/Accessories! I was really excited about our new theme. I have been dreaming of ordering these beautiful stamps from Oxford Impressions Dress Forms and Corsetry Plate for quite some time, and this gave me the perfect excuse! Images were stamped in London Fog by Memento and distressing was done with Milled Lavender and Spun Pink Distress Ink. Embellishments include a bit of ribbon and lace, a sewing needle and thread some buttons and snaps. Take a stroll over at FSC to see all the beautiful creations by the rest of the Design Team and we hope you will link your own creation! Please see FSC for the specifics concerning submitting to the challenge and to see the really neat stamps someone will win. Looking forward to seeing your creations! Take care. Yvonne

Oh wow Yvonne, this is so fresh and clean looking and yet 'vintagey' at the same time. You have a unique ability to place your images in such a way that fills the space without feeling overcrowded. The two little check bows draw the eyes right across the piece and add a perfect touch. A great job.
Hope you have a great Sunday.

Hi Yvonne
I am finally catching up with friends' art.
I loved this when I first saw it over at the FSC group. Beautiful colours and amazing use of the O.I. Stamps. The gingham ribbon adds that certain French flair.

P.S. Congratulations on your Take Ten artwork. My complimentary issue arrived yesterday. An honour to be published in the same magazine as you.
