And (drumroll, please) my word is...............QUEEN. No, not a tribute to Freddie Mercury, but a fine little sign to place on the door of the studio, don't you think?
All of the stamps are Wendy's and the torso is one of her fab new art parts, which I painted white, dried, colored with broken china distress stain (LOVE Tim's new stains!), then covered with one of Wendy's backgrounds (using black archival ink).
Challenge #6 at EWV is to use only one of Wendy's sets on a tag. I chose Fashion Style and Art, because I love the little stamps of clothing, and this is what I came up with:
First I used three Cuttlebug border embossing folders to create the tiny buttons and stitching you see in the background. Then several blue and green distress inks, using Tim's wrinkle-free distress technique. Sanded the embossing a bit and then darkened it with chipped sapphire. In between the "stitching", mostly hidden by the dress, are two of the text stamps from that set. The dress itself was stamped on a scrap of paper I found on my work table. I made the hanger from black wire and it is hanging on one of Tim's hitch fasteners. Find your style is stamped on a bit of ribbon. I finished it off with some real buttons and on top, a bit of an old cloth ruler and a trinket pin.
And, speaking of challenges, in less than a week, a new one begins at StudioL3. Just click on the logo on my sidebar for the scoop on that one. Can't wait!
