CCB 5x7 Card-Dressform with Chicken Wire & Tutorial

I'm featured on the Canvas Corp Brands Blog today,
sharing my 5x7 Card created with Tattered Angels, 7Gypsies and Canvas Corp products.

Here is a 5x7 card using the 7 Gypsies Architextures-Market Signs card stock
 which I used the flip side with beautiful wood grain floral patterns on it.
This card was a work of  "love" with a few cool 
techniques and tricks. I will share how I took Canvas Corp Chicken Wire Card stock
to create my own embellishment.
 How I dressed up a dress form die cut with CCB Flute paper. 
So let's dive in....

Creating your own chicken wire embellishments 
(which I have video sharing these steps, below).
I used Canvas Corp Black & Ivory Chicken Wire Card stock, fussy cut out
a section of the pattern. Dabbed on Versa Mark embossing ink
and embossing powders to create depth and tooth for the Tattered Angels glimmer mist
to grab onto. It's all about layers and more layers....
Picture below show the finished embellishment I glued 
old book paper and netting behind the embossed chicken wire piece
 for an added layer on the card front.

Here is the video sharing this technique.....

Here is a close up photo of the added textures of lace, netting, buttons 
along with a 7 Gypsies antique brass pin and LOVE charm. 
Oh can you see the texture on the embossed the weathered look.

Let's chat about the dressform die cut piece, I die cut out the dressform many times
in different papers to create layers. First layer chipboard, then Tattered Angels
Mixed Media Origins-Nature and the top layer is Canvas Corp Flute paper-white. I distressed  the edges with Tattered Angels glimmer mist-Graphite, adorable!

Thanks for stopping by today, go ahead and grab your papers, mists and create away!
