For Rosemary - Mothers Day with Darkroom Door

My lovely mother-in-law,  Rosemary, is a very skilled dressmaker and I wanted to create something extra special for her, as it's 'our' very first Mothers Day since I married Joel!  Darkroom Door's Dressmaker stamp set was the perfect starting point in creating this card for her.

There's quite a lot of layering of papers and inks and paint in this piece. 

I've created this effect on the dressform by stamping the bust section a second time on scrap paper with pink ink, cutting it out and over-stamping it with Darkroom Door's Floral background stamp and swiping ink around the edges to create dimension.

There's some fussy cutting too!

And a tiny bit of hand stitching, lace, tulle and a pearl button were the finishing touches!

Having been 'motherless and grand-motherless' for some now, it's pretty exciting to have a mum to once again make special things for!  

The Darkroom Door products I have used for this piece are:
