hi guys, well I'm here with a little Thursday inspiration for
That Craft Place Challenge Blog
 i got this 4 x 6 canvas free with a larger one i bought , when i was doing a tag swap i mixed up some paint for the background, it was such a pretty colour and i had some left so i covered this canvas with it, so when i had a bit of spare time i had a play and this is what i came up with

i used one of the stamps from the Kanban Jasper set, i stamped and coloured the dress form part of the image, the i stamped the shirt part several times onto pattern paper, shaded a bit with my spectrum noir markers then layered it leaving the lower edge free and slightly shaped upwards to give the feel of layers of fabric, the corset and hat are stamped onto a coordinating darker paper, cut out and decoupaged, then i took some gold thread and laced the corset ending in a lovely bow.
next the background, first i stamped it with moonlight white Brilliance ink and a lace pattern stamp, then i used Ditzie Designs Curvy cog, background stamp which i embossed in gold, i love the grungy feel you get with stamping onto canvas and embossing.

iv added some metal embellishments , and lace and flowers, which i think give a nice contrast to the grungy background,

hope you like it :)
