Work in progress
This week for Grungy Monday #15 Linda has us visiting Tim way back in 2007. You can see what he is up to here. This is a favorite technique of mine. As you see I am still stuck on using darker inks and the dress form stamp. I made my background using Tim's technique with antique linen distress ink. I went over it with vintage photo and after running it through a TH Alteration dressmaker folder I sanded some off and went over it with walnut stain distress ink. The dress form(TH stamp) I stamped over rusty hinge distress ink using a mask for the bodice and embossed. I then stamped stitches(TH stamp) onto the bodice and cut out. I stained the words with vintage photo and rust and stamped stitching. Word pin is TH that I attached fibres too, and used paper tape measure tied with thread for tag ribbon.
Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show they are asking to see some stitching. There is so much inspiration at both places. Check it out.
Thank you for looking. I hope you are having fun!
