Dress form tag

Good morning on this very cold frosty Saturday morning.

Well the car is in the garage having a huge service plus I've got an oil leak, so that's gonna cost me a bomb. It was -8.5 when I took the car over, it took me ages to defrost it and oh my fingers did hurt with the cold. Maddie is off to Singapore today for a week to work at the air show there, and hopefully I will see the other offspring and family tonight. Then tomorrow I want to be up bright and early to go to the Stamperama show at Stevenage. Anyone else going?

I was so determined this weekend to join in with a Gingersnap Creations challenge and their masking tape theme inspired me to make this tag. You can see the steps I took to create it in the photos below.

I laid out the masking tape and stamped it with Stazon.

I laid the masking tape over  the tag.....

... and bended DIs over it.

Using gel medium I glue some stamped tissue paper over the top,

and then played with distress stains and more DIs and sewed round the edge of the whole tag.

I die cut the dress form in brown and white card, cutting out the white piece.
More distress stains and water were used to colour the white form and white DS to colour the brown one.

I added a two layer net skirt and had fun with snaps and small embellishments.

A large flower at the top and some net and ribbon through the tag hole.

I love the spring colours on this one. Not so grungy as usual!

Stay warm today and enjoy your weekend. 
I will be back tomorrow with both my FSC and PanPastel UK design team pieces.
