I first covered the rim with Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and rubbed a bit of Vintage Photo distress ink over it. Then I broke into my highly-prized stash of Melissa Frances vintage crepe paper. I am having a wonderful time working with that stuff - so fun! I cut about a 3 inch wide strip of the white, ran a basting stitch down the middle, gathered it and then folded it along the stitch line so it was a double frill. Then glued it around the inside edge. The circle chipboard piece I was working with didn't quite fill the space, so I then created a single gathered ruffle of the blue. That filled the gap. The chipboard circle was covered with some Tim Holtz Paper Stash Vintage Shabby paper. I was going for lots of ruffles and frills so had to run a circle of lace around it too. The image is printed on cardstock edged with Vintage Photo distress Ink and then stitched to a piece of vintage muslin. I mounted the vellum sentiment on scraps of muslin too. A crinoline and paper flower tops off the upper portion. I draped the sweet glove across the bottom, finished off with a stick pin and another handmade flower. In the making of this piece, I also used plenty of Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium Matte.
Okay, that's it for the details. Now, I really want to know your opinion. PLEASE don't say you like it if you don't. I know you are all sweet and polite and want to say nice things about everyone's work. If you like it, leave a comment. If you don't, you can give me some constructive criticism or just don't leave a comment. LOL - if I get no comments, I'll know that it didn't make the grade.
