Crafty Individuals Sponsor Spotlight No.2

Hello everyone!
 Lys here,  introducing the second Sponsor Spotlight of the month

Crafty Individuals can provide you with many crafting supplies, especially rubber stamps, like the ones I chose (and it was difficult to choose).

 They are very precise and I love these vintage designs!
Let me tell you the story of how they inspired me....

Three ladies go out shopping and here they are in front of their favourite dressmaker shop: 

They admire the red one in the showcase, shining and new,

But they know that everyone can get a unique one, thanks to the many available patterns

Anyway the measuring tape can be thrown in a corner, as it's not a matter of length

Only their inner beauty can make them shine, and every lady can think that for herself

So they dream...why not go further and spend a night in Paris?


Well, getting down to earth, this is the process: I took an empty chocolate box

In order to use both parts of the box, I first used alcohol inks instead of thick layers of paint, but I changed my mind several times and finally I only kept the drawer.

So I tried to make this flashy pink softer, and with a mix of terracotta and denim , this is how it turned out. I also used Stazon on stamps on the outside but I forgot to take photos.
I put a piece of lace fabric on the back and tinted it with Vintage Photo to make it less white.

I stamped the images on white or kraft cardstock and coloured the ladies with a mix of Neocolor II and Adirondack raisin (yes I know I am not very academic, I try things until I am happy).

Spots of Glossy Accents are put on the red dress.

I would love to know if you like this. 
I loved working with Crafty Individuals stamps and I am sure you would too....

So join Candice's challenge 'Junk in your Trunk' and you could be the lucky winner of a Crafty Individuals prize!

Have a nice crafty time!
