Another mixed media canvas

Last year, I gave Carol and Jude (friends from Card Making World forum) some die cuts and stamped images to challange them to create something a little different. This is what I came up with using the same stamps, die cuts and ribbon.

The die cuts were made using a Tim Holtz Alterations Die. I painted the die cuts black then added some gold to the dress form. Wound fancy wool around the thread card and tied a knot in the button with the same thread. I used some fancy knitting netting to make the dress and dabbed alcohol ink onto it to give it some colour. Added a flower to the top. Wound the ribbon around the waistline to make a belt.

The stamped images were from a Toodle Binks set which was a freebie from Craft Stamper last year when I renewed my subscription.

The canvas black was painted black then coloured using alcohol inks and gold paint dabber. Applied a floral paper serviette with Mod Podge to give more colour on the background. The wish word was also die cut and painted with Worn Lipstick Crackle Paint.
