Sassy Style

Time for another DT piece for The Stamp Attic using Wendy Vecchi's A FORM OF ART set of stamps.
I decided to decorate my background using the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints, first coat Little Black Dress, second coat of Crackle Glaze and a final coat of Snowflake to give me my crackle background.
Once I had painted my background I added black machine stitching to the outside edges then adding the text background in black Archival Ink. The bodice was stamped onto white card, cut out and added to my background piece.  I stamped the funky flower (from Wendy Vecchi's Funky Flower Art) onto white card three times, bent slightly to give some shape/dimension and added to the bodice. I added one of Tim's Accoutrements for a little bit of BLING.
I stamped the sentiment onto white card, cut out, sponged the edges with Distress Ink black soot and added to the top of my piece along with one of Tim's Hanger Clips to follow on with my sewing theme. I added a funky flower to the top left corner, adding a black snap to the centre.
I added three black buttons from my sewing box and cut the spool using the Sewing Room die and added white cotton and a pin to complete.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
