Do to photographer and computer tech errors ( give me a break... I'm gettin' the hang of this) the photos do not do the project justice. If you are in or near Burbank go check it out. The contest starts Oct. 1st. It is a fundraiser project for Cancer Awareness Month. (go to www.onceuponapage.com for details).
Misc. details
Other embellishments used Tim Holtz ( of course), word sticks, fragments, hitch fastener, baubles and tiny attacher. Silver words, mini hearts (pink bling) trinket pin, pink feathers, chain, and pink ribbon from Michael's and Queendom stash.
There are two facets on this bra , the one on the front was made using alchol ink to colorize it and then I stamped with an image from the vintage ladies stamps, I embellished it by adding a small pearl and red crystal beads,, and its backed by light pink feathers.
The facet on the chain in the back is stamp with a "portion" of the same stamp as the front and embellished with a pearl.

Back view ... I embellished the back by adding the flowers, I added a chain ( with baubles, word stick, and embellished facet), at the bottom are silver words embellished with pink hearts (my signature bling! ). Not seen in this photo are also a grunge paper butterfly and grunge paper heart added to the shoulder straps ; that have been distressed and stamped.
Around the bottom on the front are the words faith, hope, love, and on the back family and friends.

Wow !! I can't believe I did this ... I entered the Bra Contest at Once Upon A Page ! Check out the details at their site www.onceuponapage.com . You can also visit the store 2527 W. Magnolia Blvd. Burbank, California.
Okay... about my project
I wanted it to be "uniquely me " soooo I decided to take one of my old bras (a green thing ya'll... Lol ) . For the backgound I stamped it using distressing ink and archival ink using various stamps (love ephemera, vintage ladies, script, music, flowers and sentiments). I misted it with perfect pearls; heirloom gold, interference red, and perfect pearls. It looked really pretty at first, but the mist soaked into the fabric (dah !! ... I was experimenting!! ).

Flowers: used grunge paper and my tattered flowers die, distressed flowers with worn lipstick, spun sugar, victorian velvet and tattered rose distressing inks. I made grunge roses and the oter flowers were stamped with hope sentiment and script stamps. I used diamond sticles to highlight the roses and one layer of the other flowers.
