This bodice is from the Girly Lace Stamp sheet that I designed for Joanna Sheen.
There are so many ways to use it whether it be stamping and colouring, paper pieceing, gilding, but for this card I used heat bondable Angelina fibres. First of all I inked up the rubber stamp with Stazon Ink, then chose my fibres and layed them over the image, covered with a piece of parchment paper and held an iron on it for a few seconds until I could see the faint image of the bodice through the paper. When I lifted the fibres off the stamp I had this lovely textured bodice. I repeated the process over the bow and the rose so that I could layer them on top. I punched holes down the middle and threaded some narrow ribbon. To finish off I used fabric glue to sprinkle some sparkle fibres at the top and the bottom of the bodice.
I Stamped two lace borders embossing with them with white powder, the lace borders are from the Live each moment Lace set. I then inked with the lovely new Tim Holtz Shaded Lilac distress ink, cut each one out and stuck them down the sides of the card. I measured the middle gap, cut a piece of card to size and covered with some beautiful spider web netting, sticking it down on the back with tape.. and then sticking to the card ready to stick the bodice and Happy Birthday down with pinflair glue.
I hope you like it.
