Feminine and Fashionable


Hello and thanks for calling in today, it was my time to pick the theme this month at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and I chose 'Feminine' and if you like the theme, you still have time to enter.

As it was my theme, I decided to add another piece using some new  Stampendous Andy Skinner Shabby Chic stamps. Again I've printed out a label I found on the internet, re sized and then stamped the corset image in the center.



The box was left over from my favorite mint tea bags, was covered with a mix of Distress paints using a dry brush. I did some second generation  stamping with some of the other labels from the set
giving a worn vintage look to the box.



A few Sizzix Tiny tattered roses and leaves  and a pretty bow to complete.

You still have time to enter the challenge and you can find all the details here.

Have a great day,
Avril xx

You achieved a lovely finish to the box Avril, gives it a really aged feel and the prefect base for the tag using those rather nice AS stamps.

I really like the worn ink effect on the bag, and the label from the web was a great find, looks pretty teamed up with your stamped image.

Great grunge color on the surface of the box and a very nice front decoration. Vintage Look from its best.

Absolutely gorgeous, Avril - I love how you've altered the box, and the re-sized corset is exquisitely tiny on your lovely label.
