Hi there, my card this morning features some of the gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque. There are 2 new sets of stamps Haberdashery and Lace Fragments and they are scrummy!
These new stamps are fab and I think they're going to be one of my favourites. I had fun dressing up one of the dress form stamps with a little chiffon dress. The background was created using a resist technique - I stamped lots of the smaller stamps from Haberdashery with versamark and then applied lots of distress ink (Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet). The border is machine stitched. I've used the sentiment stamp on ribbon stamped with black stazon.
The black lace was made by stamping one of the gorgeous lace borders on some tissue paper with black archival ink and pleating it as I applied it to a strip of double sided tape.
The little chiffon dress was really easy to make. I stamped and cut out the dressform and then took a couple of scraps of chiffon and stamped them with another lacy border (unfortunately it doesn't show up too well in the pic). To make the dress I just wrapped the stamped chiffon around the dressform using strong double sided tape to adhere it to the back of the image. To add a bit of bling I used a little crystal buckle on some narrow black ribbon. The dressform is layered up over a die cut stamped with another lace fragment.
