well this is happy mail, Mel and i did a wonderful tag swap a while ago
and decided to do another,
this time the theme was to use a dress form..
and boy i was not disappointed....
not only did Mel send me the most wonderful tag creation ,
but so many wonderful and kindly chosen goodies it felt like Christmas!
if you have not stopped by Mel's blog here..
make sure you do as you will not be disappointed by the
amazing creations and kindness you find there..
I love the background and all the layers of colour that have been created..
not forgetting the gorgeous dress form..
hope the photos do the colour, crackle and shine justice..
then there is the beautiful heart,..
and Mel has the most amazing way with wire..
look at this cobweb!
oh and the back is beautiful too...
and space for a lovely tag..
Once again, I love it..
and hope to do another one soon!!
Mel is a lovely lady with a big and kind heart!
So here is my take on the dress form..
I made a neutral background and stamped with some of my new metallic stain..
the dress form was embossed, inked and dipped in some stain,
and inked again..and ..
a little heart added.
the flowers inspired by craft stamper..
were made from DIY foil tape, embossed and generally distressed..
i added a quote which i love..
and floral trim
dyed with the stain..
Thanks for stopping by and make sure you pop across to see Mel's lovely work!
have a fun and inky day..
I will be back later with a very late entry for simon says stamp and show..read all about it!
