A very good evening to one and all!
Long day away at The Artisan Show. Acquired a bag of goodies - which is upstairs awaiting to be unpacked and given a home! It was a fairly small fair but I was very glad to enjoy some space to meander around and savour all on offer. More another day...and onto the main jist of tonight's blog...
I have spent a lot of time this week making a hanging which I am going to enter into two challenges as it does fit the bill for both. The first being Simon Says Stamp and Show (Your Distressed/Sanded Projects!) and also the new October challenge from The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog which is Layers. The inspiration for my piece is the uber-fabulous Mad Men TV drama series. Have you seen those outfits??? It oozes with retro glamour but also highlights the tough fight the women of that time faced as they tried to break free from the typical "little housewife at home" mold...So I thought these stamps would be just the thing...
The glasses were stamped and embossed onto blue card and then cut-out. To finish off I used some gold thread and vintage buttons. The hanger is an old tape measure - also sanded and inked to help it blend in better with the rest - with a little fragment held in a memo pin. Sanded and edged the whole background board again to finish!
I really enjoyed making this and I am very pleased with the end result...don't you just love it when a plan comes together!
Why not have a go yourself! Go on...Head on over to the blogs to read and see lots more (see links above).
Enjoy your Sunday, be inspired and see you all soon,
Love Me xxx
