One Stop Craft - Fashion throughout the Years

Good Morning All, I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend and you are all ready for a new theme over at One Stop Craft Challenge for the coming week.

It was Shelley's turn to choose this weeks theme and she has gone for a fabulous one

" Fashion Throughout the Ages"

My first thoughts were to use one of the 3 clear stamps I bought at one of the big craft shows about 14 months ago. I can't remember who produced them but they were called Faith, Hope & Charity. Maybe if some of you recognise the image you could let me know so I can give full credit the creator. I used my Pro Markers for the skin tones and my Staedler Water colour pencils for the dress and skull cap and stickles gold on her feathers, adding a tiny pearl to the centre. The rest of my recipe is below this post.

I can't wait to see all your wonderful creations with this theme in mind, you really have to pop over to the blog and see the other amazing work the DT have created for you.

Our sponsor this week is none other than the lovely Shelley herself who is the owner of the online store One Stop Card Crafts and she is giving one lucky winner a fantastic bundle of Craft work Card Candy worth £10.00 Do pop over there and take a browse at her lovely crafting items on offer.

Thank you so much for visiting, do please leave a few words to let me know you were here.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. xox Suzi
