Hi there, my card today uses the lovely new Haberdashery stamps from Chocolate Baroque. As soon as I saw these stamps I thought the accessories would look fab stamped on shink plastic. Its hard to see in the pic but I've used thimblies, pin cushion, scissors, cotton bobbins and balls of wool, stamped on shrink and coloured with distress stains.
I thought a little shop window would be a good way to show off my little Haberdashery bits and bobs. I began by using a Crafters Workshop template to create a brick effect. I swiped pumice stone distress ink over my card and then applied the template. I began by sponging tea dye distress ink over the template and then adding some Vintage photo around the edges to give the bricks a bit of dimension.
To make the window, I took some plain white card about 5cm wider than I wanted the window and cut out the window panes with my craft knife and scored at 1.5cm in from each end and popped a square of acetate behind the window frames. I scored a line between the two window panes and added little pearls as handles . I used a scrap of paper from Prima Almanac collection for the background and added a couple of thin strips of card for the shelves and attached the shrink plastic bits and bobs with glue. To make the window I just attached each end of the card to the back of the prima paper using strong tape and as the card is bigger than the paper it makes a dinky little bow window. It looked a bit plain so I added some die cut strips created with Crealies dies.
To finish off I added lots of tiny paper roses around the window.
