I had fun pairing Clearly Constructed (Character Construction) stamp with PaperArtsy to create an art doll on a That’s Crafty! Alterable Surface.
Distress Stain Spray:-
Smoke, Antique Linen Ground Espresso Hickory
Tombow Glue Stick
Extras:- Vintage dressmaking tissue (substitute with Canvas Corp Natural Tissuestock), scrap fabric and ricrac
Mist panel with Distress Stain Sprays and whilst wet, rub Gesso onto the panel. Continue to mist with DSS if required. Apply the same colours to a scrap of white cardstock. Onto this piece stamp upper section of PaperArtsy stamp, arms (from LPC001) and thimble (from Sewing Notions).
Returning to the panel. Once it is dry, randomly stamp words. Continuing with the stamping, stamp the lower section of the mannequin onto the panel. Re-ink the full stamp and this time stamp onto dressmaking tissue/Tissuestock. Tear around stamped image, adhering to panel with Tombow glue stick, layering with the stamped head. Cut slits into the sleeves of the dress and slide the stamped arms in place. Fussy cut the stamped thimble, attaching to one hand, creating a handbag.
Onto tissue, stamp French text and dressmaking snaps. Adhere all the stamped pieces and finally finish embellishing the panel with fabric and ricrac scraps. One final job is to sponge Black Soot onto edges of the panel.
Until next time,
