Now for my projects!
For this release, I chose to work with Gatsby, Windows and Doors and Flapper Fashions.
Here's a card created with Flappers Fashion!
I stamped the Flapper script on white card stock to start. Then I found the little brown frame - another castoff from some other project! It was cut and embossed with Spellbinders S5-012 Classic Frame die template. I distressed it a bit and glued it over the Flapper story.
Next, I stamped and colored the lady with Copic markers: E00, E13, E15, E21, E95, E97, W3. I didn't try to match it to any paper, I just colored! Once I had these pieces I looked for DP to coordiate. I found this paper from Graphic 45. Can you believe that color match? Perfect!
I created a little flower from seam binding to add to one corner of the frame. I pulled little tufts of seam binding through the holes of the other 2 visible corners. I used the same seam binding to make the little pleated edge. I simply put some glue on the seam binding and pleated it.
Windows and Doors is the last set I worked with.
I put together this ATC with the street lamp image from Windows and Doors. The verse is also from that set. I added a "flapper" from Flapper Fashions. These sets all work together so well!
I used my Ranger Distress Broken China Stain to color the background initially. Then I added Distress ink around the edges to darken it.
I stamped and cut apart the verse to add along the side.
I colored my lady with Distress Stain, too! I dabbed some stain on my glass work surface. Then I picked up some color with a waterbrush and painted it on. Her dress is Fired Brick. The fox fur has Walnut Stain and Wild Honey. It's the same color on the street light. I used very watered down Fired Brick for the skin color.
I sure hope I've inspired you today! Aren't these new sets fabulous? Wonderful vintage images!!!
