The Corset of Her Dreams

Hello Everyone
Not so long ago I shared with you two cards featuring Darkroom Door’s Corsetry set.  At that time I used grey, black and white with a touch of cream however I was keen to stamp up the set again, using some of the other stamps in the set and also working with my favoured brown tones.canvas
A corset was definitely going to be the feature stamp on the canvas but I wanted to use the wonderful advertisement stamp in the set.  Of course, working on quite a small canvas I knew that the majority of the background would eventually be covered up however I ploughed ahead, staining the canvas and stamping the advertisement repeatedly to give me this as a base.canvasbaseI tend not to forward plan too much but I had to this time because I wanted to ensure that the woman would be visible once I had completed the canvas with the stamped art, embellishments, etc.5 May 002The other piece of forward planning was with the corset. The corset, once stamped, actually faces to the right, however with the placement of the woman (above) I wanted my corset to face towards the left. Simply resolved by stamping onto tissue paper and flipping over before adhering to the stained cardstock.  This is it after I had taken those steps.tissuepaperI also combined stamps from the Dressmaker set.
A rather out of focus shot! To bring a touch of texture I wound some thread around the stamped thread card. 22 May 018The Dressmaker stamps work so well with the Corsetry set.
Here I folded the stamped measuring tape for some added dimension. 22 May 014Scraps of stained lace and seam binding were the only added extras, and a little button. photofiveThank you for your visit to this most recent scheduled post.
Hope you are all having a lovely week.

    I love it, Lynne!
    It is beautiful, and sweet, -the seamstress behind the korset, tells a true story of the work and adverticement of those dayes, and the stamps from The Dressmaker set gives so much life to it because you are so clever in the way you use them, making it 3-dimentional. What a wonderful canvas you created dear friend.
    Hugs and a lovely weekend-

    stamping on tissue paper…
    wrapping the embroidery floss around your stamped card…
    I could go on…
    Thank you so much for sharing dear Lynne…
    I am still wondering what it is about corsets that always fascinates and draws me in *ggg*…I certainly would not want to wear a corset 😉
