A little bit of 'Ooh La La!'

Hi Folks, here's another sample using the fabulous new 'Lace Fragments' and 'Haberdashery' stamps recently released over at Chocolate Baroque I have tried to recreate a French Dressing room feel to this card, using Post It notes to make the stripy wallpaper. I have used Memento Paris Dusk Ink and Spun Sugar Distress Ink as my colour choices throughout.

The mannequins have been stamped and embossed using a navy embossing powder, then coloured using Distress Stains. I have used a Memory Box label to stamp the sentiment on, which came from the 'Paris Postcard' A6 unmounted stamp sheet.

The colours that I used on this project were very unusual for me, and I really enjoyed working outside my usual comfort zone. I'll be back in another few days with my last sample from these current stamp sets. Thanks for stopping by, xx

Firstly congratulations on your Top 3 award at Snazzy's. Your layered stamping & masking on this is a real education & I love thes oft colouring of those bodyforms. The little dash of blue on the collar of that far left one is masterful......
This is a joy to behold.

Fabulous card Buddy and love how you've used the stamps. The 'wallpaper' is a great idea and the colours work really well for the theme.

After seeing how you're using the gorgeous lace stamps, especially on my beautiful birthday card (Mwah!) they've just got to go to the top of my wish list.
