Mannequin Collage

Hi folks, thanks for stopping by. Today's offering is a card made with the brand new stamps from Chocolate Baroque. The stamps used were the Dress Making Collage stamp and the Floral Mannequin stamp set.

  • This card measures 20 cm x 20 cm.
  • Start off by inking up the Dressmakers Collage stamp with a grey Versafine ink and then stamp all over the base card.
  • Next brush over some Antique Linen and Mustard Seed Distress ink and edge the card with a red and black Gelato crayon.
  • Cut a panel of white card measuring 11 cm x 15 cm, ink up the Collage Stamp with black Versafine and stamp all over the panel.
  • Water colour the images using Fired Brick and Forest Moss Distress Inks, then matt onto black card.
  • Cut the main panel from card measuring 10 cm x 14.5 cm and mat onto black card. Now working with the Floral Mannequin set, ink up the tailors stand with black Versafine and stamp twice.
  • Ink up the lace flower with grey Versafine and stamp over and around the tailors stands. Edge the panel with a gold Gelato crayon and brush Antique Linen Distress ink over the entire panel.
  • On separate card ink up the two floral mannequins with Versamark and stamp and emboss with black embossing powder. After heating the powder water colour with Forest Moss and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Cut these out and mount over the two stands using silicone glue.
  • You now have two panels. Place these on the card and decide where you want to stamp the lace ribbon stamps. Ideally they need to look as though they are disappearing under the panels. Use black Versafine to stamp the lace ribbons.
  • On separate card stamp the lace flower three times, brush with Mustard Seed Distress ink and then cut out. 
  • Layer up two of the cut flowers using silicone glue and then from the third flower, just cut the centre part and add to your layerd flower. Add a touch of Fired Brick Distress ink to the leaves.
  • Stick your panels to the card with double sided tape and then finish off by attaching your lace flower with silicone glue.
  • As you can see I have rounded all of the corners. I did this with a Crop a Dile Corner Chomper but of course this is completley optional.
Well if you are still with me after that you need a medal. Thanks for popping by and see you again soon...
