Hm.....Wish you were Near!!!
Our challenge over at Try It On Tuesdays this fortnight is 'Anything Goes' and .........for my offering I have had a messy time with this one.
My tag was originally intended for Studio L3's CCV2, but didn't get finished, however I did like the white stamping and didn't want to waste my background. The Distress inks used were Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade, and although its hard to see.lots of scrpt and swirl images were stamped on the background with Milled Lavender. I embossed top and bottom with TH Bookplate EF.
My lady was stamped twice, I cut out a corset, added some lace top and bottom and shaped it, well she does look rather voluptuous!
I know this image is on the IndigoBlu sewing plate, and she is an advert for corsets........but whenever I see her I always think of Mae West and her famous saying " Come up and See Me Sometime" - hence my sentiment on the bottom attached with jump rings (hate these)
I bought some Metal Foil tape and this is my first attempt with the flowers and swirl, not too bad. (I hope you're not thinking - who's she kidding)
I used Eggplant AI and they do match in with the colours on the tag, but were a nightmare to photograph.
The silver ribbon was dyed with Eggplant AI.
Well, that's my 'Anything Goes' - the rest of my teamies have plenty of inspiration for you, so please pop over and also meet out 2 new Guest Designers, Michelle and Birgit. This month we are sponsored by
