Altered Glove Hanging



I had so much fun creating this piece for the lace challenge atGingersnap Creations
This month we have a wonderful sponsor. Jennie from Artistic Stamper based in the U.K. She provided the beautiful stamps I used in this piece. When I think of lace I think of Victorian elegance and whats more elegant than a vintage glove? I did a transfer of the wonderful stamped woman on a piece of Sheer Heaven then chalked it before transferring it to the glove, added buttons, a bit of vintage lace and stamped the text inside the vintage bead work piece,added satin flower and tulle. A hat pin and some text finish it off. It hangs from a silk ribbon.
Watch for more wonderful art all month on the Gingersnap Creations blog and here too.
