Vintage ATC at The Stamp Man

The Stamp Man ATC swap running at the moment is a vintage theme. With Jill and Ian's move to the unit next door, the address for sending your ATcs has changed. It is now -

The Stampman, Unit 11, Craven Nursery Park, Snaygill Industrial Estate, Keighley Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 2QR,

I have used the sewing room die with shrink plastic and created this mini version of the dress form. 

 I used the TH weathered textile stamp on the dress form.

I have also used the haberdashery stamps and the mini classics all by the great man himself of course.

If you fancy having a go at this do post your ATC and link it to the challenge blog, we would love to see what you create.

If you have seen my mini canvas piece I published yesterday you will note that when I was at Lucy's earlier in the week she showed me how to make moulds and cast embellishments using clay. She has been asked by a number of people how she does it and she is going to run an on-line course (for a small fee) to demonstrate how it is done. If you would like to have a go at this, and it really is a fab way to make embellishments of your own, then pop over to her blog HERE and email her for more information.

I hope you are having a good weekend and thanks for your continued support in my artistic endeavours..

This is fabulous! I love the way you have used the beads from Tiger then followed them through with your colourscheme. I love the pole up the middle of the dressform. The shrink ones I have done have all been opaque but it works really well in clear shrink.

Thank you so much for mentioning my course,

I wondered how you'd got that die on an ATC, Brenda. Shrink plastic is inspired. It's all gorgeous. I love the beads.
