Dressmaker Dreams


Greetings!  A special thanks to my most recent followers.  In paticular, thank you to Kay Wallace who saw that I had 99 followers and made it 100!  Wasn't that sweet of her?  Her work is beautiful, if Kay is new to you, why not visit her blog?!  It is a beautiful Saturday in our part of the world.  Just a short post today for a new challenge over at Our Creative Corner.  I just could not resist joining in with the theme being "Fashion and Style." We are to include a mannequin, stitching or item of clothing. I decided to work with a plate of images from Oxford Impressions called Dress Forms and Corsetry.  I stamped a number of images on the card base in London Fog Memento Ink.  I layered a paper doily next, which was painted with Broken China Distress Paint.  (Thanks to Linda at The Funkie Junkie for making me aware that you could paint a papar doily!) The main images were stamped with Black StazOn Ink on card stock or white frayed edge fabric and layered over the doily.  Embellishments include a piece of crocheted lace, cheese cloth, vintage buttons, a metal scissors charm and gauze flowers by Tim Holtz.  A crinkled seam binding bow completes my card.  Time to ride my bike!  Enjoy this evening.  Hugs, Yvonne

There are so many lovely details on this card. I like how you created the background, the London Fog colored ink is perfect for this soft look. The painted doily adds just the perfect amount of color, and I love the scissors and the gauze flowers! Beautiful, feminine creation!

First, Yvonne, thanks for your kind words and referral to my blog! Happy to be your 100th! I love your oh-so-delicate and feminine card. Your painted doily is gorgeous...I have spray inked them and never been happy with the result, so will try my hand at painting! Also, love that you used the cheesecloth! Bravo!

One of my absolute favourite O.I. plates. Sewing is in the air this Sunday as it is the theme of my post also.
Beautiful and delicate with such perfect adornments.
