Two Mad Dahlias Guest Designer
I am so happy to be guest posting for Blank Page Muse Stamps. When I saw these images from A Vintage Girl I could not wait to create.
I started by stamping four of the large tape measures in Jet Black Archival ink. I cut them out and using the edge of my scissors I tattered the edges.
Then I inked them and let them dry. Once dry I took a tiny bit of metal tape and made edges just like you find on real cloth measuring tapes.
For the main panel I stamped the vintage corset in the center, again using jet black archival. I also stamped a second corset and cut it out to use for a mask. This was just done on scrap paper. Always save your masks, you never know when you might use them again. I just pop them in the bag with the stamp.
I inked the corset using a pale pink and then covered it with the mask to ink the rest of the background.
The background was inked and then stamped using the small crackle stamp.
To make her sash I used the rolled measuring tape from the Timeless Measurements set. I used jet black archival on seam binding. I trimmed the image and colored the seam binding using Dina Wakley scribble sticks.
I lined up the image on the corset and glued it in place.
Before I finished up the main panel I flicked on some black and copper paint. I lined the measuring tapes up along the edge of the card and glued them down. I added the sentiment and edged the words using a black gel pen.
I added some small clusters of flowers to the corners and a tiny flower on the sash. I know the corner flowers covered the metal edges quite a bit, but I really like how they look. The whole panel was mounted on a black card.
I hope you like this card as much as I liked creating it.
