Vintage Dress Form

Oh happy day! I have just finished my project for the Sunday Stampers Challenge #221 and because, as you will see, this project definitely isn't a card I'm also going to submit it for the Anything But A Card Challenge.

I bought this vintage style wire dress form months ago with the intention of embellishing it at some point...

well - inspired by the two challenges that point appears to be now!

I really enjoyed this little project which gave me a chance to use a variety of bits and bobs from my stash.

For the record:

Stamps: Flower - Craft Stamper freebie from August 2010 issue; Flourish label (on fabric) My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus; Perfume bottle and perfume bottle label Habico Vintage Sewing

Inks: Staz-on Jet Black (flowers),  Tim Holtz Distress Inks Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany (flowers) Antique Linen (perfume bottle and perfume bottle label background), Ranger Archival coffee (perfume bottle and perfume bottle label), VersaCraft chocolate (flourish label)

Other bits and bobs:

Adage ticket & charm clip- Tim Holtz Idea-ology

Postage stamp - WH Smith

Bird cage charm - Crafty Individuals

Lace, bead trim, cameo, beads and stick pins from stash

I hope you like it too!
