These are stamps I designed for Impression Obsession - I stamped the Daisy Dressform first on watercolor paper, then stenciled a harlequin background (stencil by Crafter's Workshop) around the image using an oil-based pencil. When I rubbed distress ink over the panel, the pencil resisted the ink and the pattern shows through. I sponged the panel and watercolored the dressform with reinkers, then layered it onto my card. I wanted a vintage feel with lots of texture - I love this color combo too!

What a super vintage look. I see all these pretty AND functional dress-makers dummy stamps, and I wonder why my real one is so purely functional that I keep her dressed :D
It was such a coincidence to see your wonderful tutorial this week, Dina - I only discovered last week that my pencils would act as a resist to distress inks. It's a shame I only have a box of 24, kind of limits my colouring. The 48 box was never in stock while I worked in the distributors and after I'd decided to buy it!!
