Ohh La La

I thought I would share a bit of a saucy card with you today! I brought this stamp set by Creative Expressions some time ago and decided to revisit it with fresh ideas and I was quite pleased with the results. 
I started by stamping the image with Versafine black ink, I then poured over clear embossing power and heated to give a nice shiny look. I coloured the corset with Copics and cut the image out. 
I cut out a white mat using a Spellbinders die and did some faux stitching around the edge, then I shaped the corset and placed it onto my mat with Pinflair glue gel. 
I printed out some striped backing paper and then randomly stamped the sentiments that came with the stamp set over the paper, again using Versafine black ink and then matted the paper onto some black cardstock. To finish I added a ribbon, button and some twine and a little black gem in the bow on the corset. 
Finally I added an insert and used the sentiment "Of Corsets Your Birthday!" that also came with the set, although I did not photograph this, sorry!
