Floral Mannequins (posted by Claire)

Good morning, I hope you're having a lovely crafty weekend. My card today features some of this months new stamps from Floral Mannequin which you can find here.

I've created a background by collage stamping the stamps from Parfum de Paris with Memento Tuxedo Black in on white card, using both first and second generation stamping. I then stamped the stand from the smaller dress form on this set. I stamped the floral mannequin and coloured with distress markers before cutting out and inking around the edges with Black soot Distress ink. I used 3d foam pads to attach the floral mannequin to give it some depth. I used a black fineliner pen to add faux stitching around the card. I popped some little pearls in the corners and added lace, ribbon and a crystal button to finish off.

Thanks for visiting today

  2. A really super combination with the black & white background providing a lovely foil for the mannequin. The lace & trimmings add a lovely haberdasher's quality to the whole design & the collage stamping using the Parfum de Paris set is a brilliant idea - so evocative of the millinery trade.
