Dressmaking and Corsets at Fashionable Stamping

Hi everybody

I have an entry for Fasionable Stamping today, and for me it is all about corsets - those glamous decadent underpinnings - which I can only dream about.

For this card I have layered up black and red, and punched along the bottom with an eyelet lace MS edger.  The whole thing is on a pale shummery gold base.  My image is a B Line stamp which I have had for a long time.  The background is a variety of distres inks on smooth card, and faux edge sticking has been added down the side with an embossing strip.  Th swirl is also B Line.  The fromt of the coreset has been embellished with some Swaroski crystals that I had loose, and they sparkle like mad, but it does not show up here. I have also used lace on the edge, and a small silk flower.

This is the inside.  The corset actually opens up (it is a Provocraft die which has been discontinued now).  I have laced it up the front with black ribbon and put some lace edging along the bottom of the back part.

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
