first of her three nights she used one of my favourite stamps, the Lynne Perrella Tea Cup lady, and I was pleased to have such a different way to use her. She had cut the diamonds out of her bodice and teased pieces of organza through the resulting holes. It was very effective and fortunately I had replaced my craft knife from last time she had us doing fussy cutting, but I thought I'd do that part of the project earlier in the week, as A and E can get busy at the weekend! I really think it was the most fiddly and exasperating thing I have ever tried to do in crafting, and that's saying a lot! The cutting out part wasn't too bad, but I used a tweezers to pull the pieces of organza through the tiny holes, and every time I pulled one bit through, it pulled one of the other bits out again! Did any of you try this? I don't know if you can make it out in the photo but it is quite effective, like a ruffled bodice.
I did as Keren suggested and stamped the image several times. I used archival and layered up the teacup, the necklace, and the wording. I then coloured it with my new Fibralos. Did I tell you I bought Fibralos?!!! Then I recycled a canvas by reversing it and filled the back with white lace and painted the edges with Beach Hut. I finished it off with Teal coloured rose organza trim.
I am entering it into this week's Paper Artsy challenge.
