You know, if I see "You aren't following any blogs" one more time when I try to access my blog feed, I'll probably scream! Please bear with me, I'm sure it'll get sorted, but if things don't improve soon, I'll be asking you all to email me direct links to your blogs instead!
Now, onto more fun stuff. Namely the new challenge over at Rhedd & Rosie's! Our new theme is the brilliant Aged/Distressed, which is rather an awful lot of fun if you ask me!
I'm rather partial to a bit of distressing really...
So I made this:
The dress-form stamp was a magazine freebie, and I stamped it onto some Prima paper (mounted on distressed very pale pink card - looks white in the picture!). I then re-stamped it onto card, and coloured and fussy-cut the corset, then added it with foam pads to give some extra dimension. Finally, I covered it in crackle varnish, like thus:
Some Vintage Photo distress ink was needed on the edges of the paper, naturally, and I dug out some lace and buttons to embellish.
The sentiment is from LOTV, and was stamped straight onto the paper with brown ink rather than black, to add to the aged look.
Your turn! Go take a gander at the other, gorgeous entries, then come and bring us some distressed or aged projects of your own!
I look forward to seeing you there!
