I titled this post whispering, I believe the reason these fine ladies are whispering is because they obviously can't breathe! Look how tiny those waists are! Aren't you so glad we don't have to wear corsets? I found this wonderful image at Vintage Holiday Crafts. I used a new Spellbinder technique I learned from Sherry Cheever's Walkin on the Bad Side blog. Sherry is a Designer for Spellbinder. There is a video on both blogs, Sherry's and the Spellbinders blog to show you how you can do this. Along with another technique on how to reverse it, and use your negatives, I love to conserve paper!
I made this "Vintage" image for the challenge at Busy Little Hands. I think you can see the layers pretty good from the picture, there is a large piece of dimensional foam between each of the 5 layers. I did a bit of my own take on Sherry's technique, since I am using faces, not flowers. I chose to use the Spellbinder Petite Oval to frame the ladies faces and the Scalloped Petite Ovals to pick up on the ruffled theme of the dresses. I added the different shape of the Labels 8 to the last layer to pick up all of the background in the picture. I used the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Coffee Shop to feather off the edges, the image actually ended about 1/4" below the Labels 8 frame. The DP is Melissa Frances, 2 different ribbons from JoAnns, I sewed (by hand again) through both layers this time. The sweet little 4 leaf clovers are actually real pressed clovers from my blog candy stash from Alison at Stretch N Bubbles. By the way, this is a 5 x 7 card like most of my cards are. Thanks for looking. ~Diane
