Ooops - haven't blogged for ages! Off on holiday and then just not getting back into the swing of things, I'm afraid.
I gave the frame the sort of "tarnished enamel" look you sometimes see on old sewing machines by painting with gold acrylic and then sprinkling lightly with black embossing powder.
Except for the two 1920s ladies, all the stamps are from the Darkroom Door Dressmaker set - a lovely set of vintage style images.
I cut the little bunting flags freehand and triple embossed the die cut
lettering for a glossy, raised effect. All the images are coloured with
Copics and the tiny buttons are ones I've had in my stash for years that
were just the right scale for this.
This was my first go with a printer'stray - it's fun to collect lots of things together for all the apertures!
