grunge paper after covering with double sided adhesive. Used a craft knife to gently cut areas on the cut dress form as I wanted to keep areas separate for the embossing. For the bodice of the dress form, I used Tim's Mosaic Technique and then covered the grout area with Peeled Paint, removed the piece of paper for the waistband and added the gold and then finished off with the Vintage Photo. Heat embossed and then added the Glossy Accents to the tiles. The little spools, so darn cute, were colored using Distress stains and a tiny paint brush.
Vintage Cabinet Card and VC Movers and Shapers. I followed the technique from Tim's CC#2, "Shattered Stains," page 48 for the frame. I highly recommend this book! For my background I used a natural ivory paper, which was cut from the Vintage Cabinet Card and clear embossed images from Tim's Haberdashery stamp set. Once this was heat set, I inked all over with Distress Inks and a quick spray of Glimmer Mist! Normally I would use my own mix of Perfect Pearls, Reinker and Water, but did not have a light color mix ready! Used the patterns embossing folder, ran it through the Big Shot and then quickly highlighted the raised area with Stazon Timber Brown. Covered this clear embossing powder and then heat set. The inking and embossing process has to be relatively quick for the embossing powder to adhere. Added the little vintage sewing goodies, place the cabinet on natural ivory paper and card base. This was a fun, fun project!
