TIO - DragonsDream - Dress to Impress

Time for another recipe challenge from us at Dragons Dream Team - this fortnight, Trace wants us to use "a dress or a dressform ; an embossed impression and some bling"

I put the tag through Tim's sewing embossing folder and hit the highspots with distress ink (wild honey) I diecut the dress form from thin cardboard and also sticky back canvas (of course I should have stuck one to the other first for ease!) and sprayed the dress part with Dylusions spray. Painted the leg with distress stain (walnut stain)  Threaded some pearls from an old necklace onto thin wire for the belt and necklace. The stamp is by Hero Arts.  Finally, some ribbon.

Check out what the rest of the team have done - there are some real beauties - and please come and join in!

The pearls are a perfect finishing touch Helen.

I recently bought this TH die, only because someone gave me a couple ready cut and althouhg I didn't think they were very me, thought I should use them and so enjoyed working with them 'needed' it.
