Background layering week - Gio

How about this sample by Gio for your jewellery... or make this to offer to a friend. Isn't it lovely? 
Gio used the Impression Obsession Cover-a-card stamps with paints and inks to achieve this layered background. 

 I drew and cut the corset template from a newspaper sheet, I laid it on the fabric, I joined the paper with the fabric with some pins and I cut it twice, one for the front and one for the back.
I sprayed lightly the fabric with water, then I painted it with a mixture of Fresco Finish paints Rose, Nougat and Very Berry. For the back I only used Fresco Finish paints Rose and Nougat.
When dry, I stamped the first layer with the Impression Obsession - Cover-a-card: Swirls stamp and Archival ink. I stamped the second layer using Fresco Finish paints Nougat. I stamped the third layer with the Impression Obsession - Cover-a-card: Sunflower and Archival ink.

 I cut several sheet of acetate to make the pockets. I sewed the pockets to the corset. I hand sewed the lace at the bottom, a button, and the straps.
I made the same for the back, but, instead of stitching the back to the front, I decided to make two jewellery corset holders.

Gio used
Pebeo brush pack: set of 8

 See you tomorrow
