An Elegant Corset

Although I have limited use for images of ladies in their underwear, I thought this elegant lady  was perfect for a try at a turn-of-the-century card.  I do believe she’s gone at least one better than Scarlett O’Hara’s famous 17 inch waist – she’ll probably be able to keep on breathing as long as she doesn’t move across the room too quickly.  Anything more athletic than that is obviously out of the question . . .

This is a throwback of a card for sure . . . no heat embossing, no punches or die cuts, and no embossing folders – just straight and simple stamping with a few gewgaws for embellishment.
It’s good to remember our roots and get back to basics on occasion, yes?

Cardstock:     Bazzill Black, Marcos Kraft, Beckett Candlelight, generic Parchment      
Stamps:        Treasure Cay’s Woman in Corset, Rubber Baby’s Rule,
                          Above the Mark’s Women’s Patterns
Inks:               Archival Jet Black
Doo Dads:      Ecru lace, wooden/glass bead fringe, Black stitched Brown bow
