It's All About Dressmaking, Corsets and or Accessories!

At Fashionable Stamping Challenges it is all about "Dressmaking, Corsets, Accessories" and we would love to have you join us in some great fun and a chance at a prize!   Really stop by and see the gorgeous creations my DT Sisters have designed for your viewing pleasure and inspiration!  I am so thrilled to be with such a talented group and of course they are quite fun!  BTW, I once sewed and made most of my clothes, even jeans!  I will never forget one year, I wanted a fancy pair of jeans!  Went to the fabric store, picked out my denim and some metallic silver piping!  Oh those were really some fancy pants and now I wish I had taken a picture!  Here is my interpretation of "Dressmaking."
For my background, I stamped and clear embossed on white card stock using Tim's Haberdashery stamps.  Covered with Distress Inks and sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  Once dry, I ran it through Tim's embossing folder and highlighted.  The little buttons and spool were cut with shrink plastic and colored with Sharpies to match the ladies dresses!  Added a little thread and again to match!  Now my styling ladies is a Hero Arts stamp that was 40% off at JoAnn's and when I saw it, I grabbed it just for this challenge!  Is this perfect or what?  Stamped with Black Stazon and colored the bodies with Stampin Up Chalks.  I wanted a subtle coloring for the skin.  I stamped again on colored card stock for their outfits and fuzzy cut to give my ladies a little more depth.  Used another embossing folder for the stitching, added an old zipper on the bottom edge and held it in place with straight pins!   Another fun project!

Thank you for visiting and sure hope you will stop by FSC and join in on the fun!

Distress Inks:  Tattered Rose, Wild Honey, Story Sky, Frayed Burlap
Stazon Ink:  Timber Brown and Black

This is amazing! such attention to detail. I have that HA stamp but haven't used it yet = you have inspired me! Did you use the same TH stamps as the embossing folder and overlap them?
