The Art of the Under Garment!

Over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, the theme for fashionistas this month is 'Dressmaking/Corsets/Accessories'.  Click HERE to view their fabulous challenge blog and find out more or scroll down the sidebar for their link.

I painted a rectangular Stampboard with cream acrylic paint and did the same with a thin strip of Grungeboard.  Then I used my favourite script stamp and Distress Ink in Pumice Stone on the Stampboard and gold StazOn on the Grungeboard.  I also edged both pieces with the gold. 


I stamped the corset image directly onto the Stampboard using the gold and stamped the lady onto a piece of cream cotton using Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy and then cut the image out.
