Tag Tuesday - Mannequin

Today's Tag Tuesday challenge has a guest hostess, Sarah, who has asked us to use a Mannequin - you can even download a template here (thanks!) I reduced it on the copier at work (shh, don't tell them!) to get the right size.

I traced round the template onto a tag and cut it out.  I have used tumbled glass distress ink, and the mannequin is then sprayed with a perfect pearl/distress reinker mix for some shimmer.

I have stamped the bottom of the mannequin with a Paperartsy stamp and made a belt with a scrap of material and a metal flower (from a grab bag) threaded on a piece of gold wire.  The necklace came from Jo's bag of unwanted goodies a couple of weeks ago.
I couldn't get a very good photo, sorry!

Ooooh this one is so pretty Helen. What better use of office machinery eh? ;) I love the grassy effect type stamp you've used on the bottom.

Don't worry, your misuse of office machines is safe with me! Beautiful colors and great use of your embellies. Thanks for playing in the challenge.
