Fashion by Fliss Goodwin

Hello everyone, it seems that this week Carol and I were thinking alike as you’ll probably see a great similarity in our colour choice and mine came about because of my longing for Spring and an end to all the cold weather – it’s freezing here at the moment!
I’ve been having a play with my collection of Distress Stains and used these to make the rather grungy background paper on my creation so read on to find out how I created it.

Here’s What You Need:  
 Kaisercraft Single Stamps – Dress Form, Boutique 
 Kaisercraft Stamp Sets – Charlotte’s Dream, Bingo Cards

Distress Stains – Picket Fence, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac
VersaFine Inks – Onyx Black, Smokey Gray, Spanish Moss
VersaColor Ink – Lilac 
Clear Embossing Powder
15cm Square Card Blank
White Cardstock
Olive Green Cardstock
Coloured Pencils – Olive Green, Deep Pink
Deckle Decorative Scissors
Tim Holtz Idea-ology – Foliage
Craft Sheet
Water Mister
Heat Tool
Single Hole Punch

Here’s How To:
·       To make the background paper, apply patches of the Distress Stains to the craft sheet, starting with the lightest colour – the Picket Fence – first. Mist with water and swoosh a 14.5cm square of white card through the diluted colours. Dry with a heat tool and repeat until the card is covered.
·       Using the Smokey Gray ink, stamp the boutique design on the background paper, repeating and twisting until the paper is roughly covered. Stamp the lace border from the Charlotte’s Dream set on 3 corners with the black ink. If you need to fill in any gaps that will show in between the boutique design, part stamp the lace with the grey ink.
·       Stamp the dress form on a panel of card to fit with the black ink and heat emboss with the clear powder. Trim the panel if necessary and ink with the lilac ink. Stamp the damask design from the dream set with the moss ink around the edges. Colour portions of the image with the coloured pencils. Mat the panel on olive green cardstock.
·       Stamp the Imagine bingo card on a scrap of white card with black ink. Trim to a tag shape and colour with lilac ink and the olive green pencil. Punch a hole in the top and add a metal flower and leaf sprig with one of the brads in the foliage set.
·       Trim the edges of the background paper with the deckle scissors and stick to the card blank. Add the dress form panel and the imagine tag as shown in the photo.

Have a great weekend and see you again next week!
