Such Style

Just popped in to show you my Altered Peg...it's for the challenge over at Crafty Individuals.
The August  theme is Fashion/Style and you must use one of their products...fortunately for me I have a fair few of Crafty Individual stamps and this fashion plate is one of them.


First I stained the sides of the peg with Aged Mahogany distress ink. Secondly I used some pale patterned backing paper,which was quite thick and stamped the image twice.


I then cut the centre strip for the main part of the peg and then used the unstamped scrap for the underside and back areas.
I coloured and trimmed the 2 ladies and set them aside,while I added the lace,scissors and top frame.

To finished I used aged mahogany to distress the edges of the peg and then attached the ladies.

You can find the challenge Crafty Individuals

I am also entering my peg in to the challenge at Altered Eclectics
