Hello everyone, I hope that you are enjoying the wealth of Haberdashery inspiration this month. I have created three tags for you combining the Sewing Stamps multi-buy and the Peacock Parade/Tangled Peacock multi-buy. I wanted to create some designer haute couture style dresses, and decided to use the peacock tails as skirts combined with the bodices of two of the mannequins from the sewing sets. I stuck to a peacock themed colour palette throughout the three tags.
I started the three tags by stamping and embossing the lace strip along the bottom of the three tags, using black ink and clear embossing powder. I then stamped the foot of one of the mannequins on each tag. I stamped each peacock tail onto a tag, using teal ink, and coloured them in using watercolour paints. I used the same paint to colour the bodices, which I stamped and embossed onto a spare piece of card.
I inked each background using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, and then chose a corresponding ink colour to blend around the edges. I used the same ink colour to stamp an assortment of sewing notions as a border. Finally, I added a sentiment to each tag.
Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
