Vintage Dress Form

I was lucky enough to win the challenge over at Use it Tuesday the other week and was invited to be guest designer for Challenge 32.  I was asked to create a card 'using 2 hoarded items' - I used some BoBunny papers that I have had for about a year and could not bring myself to cut into and also some lace that I've also had for about a year.

I got the idea for my card from one of my magazines, as soon as I saw it I thought I know just the image that would work with this design.

The image is The Crafty Pad - Dress Form Trio and the papers are BoBunny - Gabrielle, full details of everything I have used are listed below.  I inked the image, ribbon, flowers and lace with old paper distress ink to tone them down a bit and match them in with the papers.  The image comes as three separate dress forms, I layered two of them up and mounted them onto the hand cut tag.  The sentiment is cut from one of The Crafty Pad - Ticket style sentiments and mounted onto the same Core'dinations card stock that has been used throughout.

I used the same two dress form images, greatly reduced, to decorate the inside of my card:


Image:  The Crafty Pad - Dress Form Trio
Papers:  BoBunny - Gabrielle
Card Stock:  Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Floral Flourishes, Classic Rectangles (inside card),
Punch Bunch - Flower Punch, Japanese Screw Punch
Embellishments:  flowers, ribbon and lace from stash
Sentiment:  The Crafty Pad
