Challenges for a change

Lots to show you today, this is post 1 and a tag I made just for me. Of course it has a dress form and a kinda sewing theme, but then it would wouldn't it????


It is ages since I entered any challenges, so I thought I would do something for just that purpose today and I chose Frilly and Funkie - now how could I resist that one lol; Simon Says Stamp and Show - Summer distress colours and Rogue Redhead Designs - use a circle, square and rectangle.

The tag was stamped with embossing ink which resists the summer distress colours that I blended over the top. I added a square of circles (does that make sense?) and rectangles of tissue paper which I blended with the DIs, the chicken wire and a piece of netting beneath it are also rectangular. To those I added a Crafty Individuals dress form (plate CI-306), also stamped with embossing ink and again the DIs blended over.


Other bits and pieces finish it off. I would like to thank dear Terry for the fibre card and tiny cotton reel as they were in a package of goodies she gave me when I visited her a few weeks ago. Thanks Terry, all my lovely bits are now in my 'sewing' box.

If you haven't seen my exciting news, then please scroll down to the last post. I am still in shock and can't believe my luck.

Wishing you happy times this weekend. Post 2 coming up soon.
