Women Only..................

For Simon Says Stamp and Show this week so I decided to decorate a bodice and one with a very womanly figure too, decorated with recycled tissue paper (a gift from Tony, Thank You), coloured with Adirondack Color Wash Espresso and Sunset Orange. The bodice has been adorned with flowers made from Tissue Tape, ribbon, Accoutrements and a Philosophy Tag attached with Jump Rings.
I applied the tissue paper, layer by layer using PVA glue and once dry applied the Color Wash. Once dry I added ribbon to the bodice and dangled a key from Tim's Locket Keys.
If you look closely you can see I have added a Trinket Pin to the top of my bodice with the word findings engraved, perfect addition for this piece. I then added my Tissue Tape flowers, adding a button to the centre of one and a Fanciful Button to the other. I created a necklace for my bodice using jump rings and a Philosophy Tag, a simple embellishment but one I feel works well in this case.
To one side I have added some press studs from my collection of embellishments along with a Curio Knob to the top of my bodice.
From the back you can see I used the On The Edge Iron Gate die to decorate the bottom of my bodice, cut from Glassine paper. To complete, I added more studs to the back.

Please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

Made it! Sorry I'm a bit late. This is such a fabulous take on the theme and a voluptuously intriguing form. She looks wonderful and this is a glorious vintage brown tone...offset by the glass curio knob and silver flowers! Really beautiful details - love the studs down the back! Now, where are you going to put it???
