Hi you all! The theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is paper-piecing. Not something I am really fond of, but challenges are always good for trying things out. For my card I used stamps from Chocolate Baroque, except for the small millinery ad which is from TH. The background has been shaded with antique linen, Victorian velvet and vintage photo DI. I randomly stamped various images with vintage photo. The focal images have been stamped with Adirondack espresso. For the paper piecing I stamped the two corsets onto scraps of DP, embossed them with white EP and mounted them over the 'normal' stamped images. After a lot of fussy cutting I pushed all the images around till I liked it, and added some pins to the pincushion and yarn to the rolls. To finish it I added some paper lace, ribbon and some buttons.
I am not really fond of corsets either - as someone whose waist has long wasted and morphed into a convex form, they are not really my thing. Those were the days!
I am also linking to the following challenges:
