Good day, all wherever you may be. I am up way too late, finishing my entry in Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Stamp Star Design Challenge. It's the final week and our instructions were to create a One Sheet Wonder. Which means to take one piece of paper, stamp on it and use all in your creation. I believe it originated as a way to make numerous card quickly. Well, I never do quickly!!! And so I decided to make a corset with this awesome template by Sarah Sandberg. And to use up the rest of my paper, I found this template from Stampington for a fan.
The basis for both pieces was My Mind's Eye new Breaking Free paper. This particular one is called Fruit Flavored 'Surfer Girl' and Betty's Boards Paper. It is double sided. I took an 8.5x11 piece out of it, leaving those boards for a later time. I used the net backgrounder on the facing left side, inked with versamark and embossed with Silver Pearl. On the right facing I used the flowers and lace backgrounder, inking it with Heritage Marvy in sea foam. It was embossed with clear ep. The upper corner was stamped with Aged Sheet Music in Memento Summer Sky ink. I added the word 'Graceful' from the Saturday Evening Post Vintage Butterfly set. I used Tim Holtz's distress ink in Frayed Burlap. The vintage lace was a gift from a friend, who generously shared her stash with me. I punched and threaded 25 eyelets and laced the cord. At the top, I finished it off with a brass bow.
The fan was created with CHF's January Stamp of the Month, Freesia. I inked it with several Chalkbox inks on each of the panels and also used two of the small butterflies and the word serenity . The back is inked with the sentiments from the SEP set. Vintage velvet ribbon ties it together.
It is difficult to photograph three dimensional items...I hope you see this at it's best advantage.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope your day is marvelous!
