We've got rain here now - all the snow has disappeared too. We managed the walk this morning without getting wet though - just as we walked back in through the gate it started to rain - so that was good timing!
In a complete contrast from the last couple of posts I sat yesterday and fiddled about with the distressing tool and sewing machine.
The Fifth Avenue pad paper pack has about a third left in it and in trying to keep my promise to myself to 'use up before you buy more' I decided to use a few more sheets and some of the odd half pieces which were too big to throw away.
The light here is seriously bad so the photo is not the best.
The dress form was slightly larger than the card so I chopped off the bottom,and simply positioned it a bit higher at the back and glued it!
I used Antique Linen on the shape then covered it with an off cut of the paper.
The lace skirt is a very old scrap from my stash but I thought it looked good with the circular shape. After glueing it I put some cream seam binding ribbon around the middle, tied it and stuck on a blingy pearl and crystal embellishment.
The flower was made using cut out nestie shapes, then sprayed with a little water scrunched up and assembled together with a brad. I dusted a little bit of Diamond stickles over it for a wee bit of sparkle.
The 'Beautiful' was a free stamp from a crafting magazine.
The papers and the cotton scalloped edging stitched,and some leaves, a die cut corner and a flourish again cut from scraps added.
Finished with a few pearls and decorated the inside with some more of the papers.
