Corsets......

Morning peeps, hope you are having a good week so far, doesn't time fly. I got side tracked yesterday after my new stamp arrived I'd ordered from The Artistic Trading Post its one of the newbies from Crafty Individuals elements range featuring womens corsets, you get lots of small stamps with the larger ephemera invoice stamp. So I combined all of these with the challenge over at Grungy Monday which is to follow the technique.....Distress Ink Colour Blocking, nice and easy colour background, I used Victorian Velvet, Tea Dye and Dusty Concord, I coloured all the corsets in the same colours, the image I used crackle accents but I didn't use enough so I got a more glazed effect .....which doesn't look too bad, the metal corners are from Wild Orchid crafts.I went to our local garden centre as well yesterday as Ethan loves it because it has a large wooden play fort with slides, Richard loves going there for his Big Breakfast batch and me and mum well we just look at the plants, although we did buy some yesterday but its so dry at the moment the gardens are starting to suffer......talking of which I've still got lots of work to do.

Grungy Monday......colour block Technique.
Artistic Stamper.....ladies.
Simon Says.......sparkle and shine.
Truly Scrumptious.......anything oes.
