Give me Wings by Brenda

Morning Peeps, Brenda here with more Sewing Room shares as well as one using the most beautiful Folk Art Garden stamp which Lesley launched on Hochands last month.

My card at the top surprised even me as Steampunk is right outside my comfort zone so when I found myself adding wings to the dressmakers form I was a tad surprised but somehow it seemed to work. I built up the background with Distress Inks and created the circles with lids from embossing powder pots dipping them into inkpads and using them to 'stamp' the circles. I also stamped the lacy edge randomly in blue over the background using third generation stamping to obtain a faded look. The stamping the dressmakers form from The Sewing Room and cutting out and placing over two wings stamped, coloured and cut from Tangled Garden. I added a little chain and buckle and linked to a flower from Floral Mannequins and added a pair of scissors from Haberdashery. Finally some lace ruched up across the top

A little inky indulgence here starting with a Brusho background onto which I stamped Folk Art Garden using Versafine black and heat embossed with detail clear powder and then bleached out some of the colour to add highlights. I tore the edges of the card to give a white edge and added some micro beads along the bottom although they do not show up too well on the photo and then mounted onto a piece of corrugated.

For this one I stamped onto four equal sizes pieces of patterned papers using two dress forms from Floral Mannequins and one  from Haberdashery along with the fancy scissors, mounted them onto a darker piece of paper from the same family and a landscape card and embellished with a die cut leaf and flower.

My appreciation as always for your visit to the Design Team blog today and your kind words of appreciation.


  1. Three fabulous pieces of work Brenda, and I love the steampunk look with the butterfly wings using one of the dressmaker's forms, and the added lace and very intricately cut scissors look great, and the colours on the second are so bright and pretty with that beautiful large stamp over the top, and then your four wonderful panels work so well, and the added flower and leafy flourish complement it perfectly. x

  2. Totally amazing cards Brenda, I love the Steampunk card, so clever and gorgeous colours. But all are beautifully designed, Kate x

  3. Just love these haberdashery creations. My favourite is the steampunk card.
