Hi There & Happy Sunday!! Shari here with you today and I've got card #2 of the trio of cards I made using our new Vintage Fashion stamp set.
I'm using a piece of the master board I showed you in last week's card, so I won't go into the details about that. But really, that panel has been the perfect background for these images-I'm sad that I'll only get one more card out of it!
Something else that I'm keeping consistent for these cards is, I'm using paper and vellum that I stained with coffee to do all of my stamping on. I stamped this woman onto a piece of coffee stained mixed-media paper with Coffee Archival and fussy cut.
She looks so lost in her thoughts, and maybe a bit forlorn, so I thought giving her a corsage of tiny tattered florals would cheer her up. After rolling these itty bitty little flowers into shape and hot gluing them, I spritzed them with Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist and placed self-adhesive pearls in the center.
I stamped the French advertisement onto a piece of coffee stained vellum, cut to size and machine stitched onto the background panel with my sewing machine. I stamped 'Fashion' onto a piece of stained stock and fussy cut to size and mounted to a light purple background.
I popped my female focal image up with some foam squares and gave her a shadow using Ground Espresso DI and my water brush. I adhered the finished panel to an iridescent purple card base and rubbed the edges with Walnut Stain DI.
Card #2 done!! I'll be back in a couple of weeks to share the last card in this trio, which means it's almost the end of the month! HEY--Have you brought your AO art to our Show Us Your AO Art Challenge yet? There's one more week until the clock strikes 11:55pm CDT on October 31st to enter......
Thanks for spending a little bit of your Sunday with me!!
