Swirly Mannequin by Penny

Goodly morning peeps, I hope you are all well.  This is my last post this month and it features another sample from the CB shows.    I have used stamps from the Haberdashery, March Fairy, and Artistic Affirmations sets, Distress Inks, black Versafine ink, clear embossing powder, silver pen and alcohol markers.

I stamped the swirly mannequin in black Versafine ink and embossed it with clear powder.  I then masked it off so that I could create the background.  I also stamped and embossed a pair of cotton reels, then coloured and masked them as well. 

To create the background I blended three shades of pink Distress Inks, then stamped a few worker stamps randomly over the panel, using the same inks.  I added black ink around the edges, then matted the panel onto black card.  I removed the masks and attached the panel to a white base card.  I then stamped and embossed a pair of scissors onto acetate, coloured them on the reverse with a silver pen, and cut them out.  On a spare piece of card I stamped the word 'Create' in black and embossed it with clear EP.  I edged the word panel with pink ink before matting it onto black card.  I then attached the word panel and the scissors to the card.

Thank you for taking time out to read this post, I hope you enjoyed it and found it inspiring.  Stay safe and well everyone, and I'll see you in April with another project,
