I can hardly believe Wednesday is here! Wow, has this week flown by! Friday will be release day at Our Daily Bread Designs. Kelley & Company have some fabbo stamps to share. And since Friday is just a few short days away (wink, wink) I thought I would share a sneaky peeky of one of the sentiments. This card will be going to a fun sketch blog called Retro Sketches.
Here's the sketch...
And my take on it...
So what do you think? Definitely a little more "shabby" than normal...but oh so fun to make! My dear friend and fellow DT member, Sabrina, sent me these lovely dress forms a while back. I inked this little gem up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (directly from the ink pad) and allowed it to dry thoroughly. I then added some Ranger Distress Crackle Paint (Rock Candy) to the base and neck and let it dry. Once it was all cured, I glued on some burlap (Modge Podge) and trimmed it to the form. I added a twine rope at the waist with a tiny cream mulberry rose. My little dressform needed some bling so I added some Recollection pearls! The card base is plain black CS with a layer of distressed Prima Almanac DP. I inked all the edges with Ranger DI (Walnut and Tea Dye Stains) before crinkling, wrinkling and otherwise tearing it to shreds. Once it was "shabbylicious" I glued it to my card stock. The base for the dress form is kraft paper inked on the edges with the above mentioned Ranger stains. I also stamped ODBD's Time image randomly with the Walnut Stain. I didn't reink each time I stamped as I like that 2nd and 3rd generation print I get without it. The final touch... I stamped the sentiment (ODBD's to be released set, Bicycle) with Versafine Onyx Black. I added a hole punch and tied a piece of jute ribbon through the top. After placing the dressform where desired with dimensional foam I added it to the card. I also tucked a bit of ecru lace under the kraft panel for a feminine flourish.
So here's a closer view...
Thanks as always for stopping by and until next time... blessings...
