Dress form template
Something a little different from my usual crafting and another of Sara’s templates over on Cardmaking Paradise is the Dress Form. Now I would love to get hold of an actual dress form; you know the ones that are sold for ‘altering’? I just love those and would like to have a go at one, I have no idea what I would do to it but ….. I haven’t got a wish list however I do have several Want Lists! Each page is dedicated to a specific area such as inks, dies and embossing folders, etc I’m sure you get the message! All I need to do is win the lottery 🙂
However I digress, back to the dress form template; I printed the template straight onto 250gsm cardstock, I am very fortunate that my Canon Printer takes most thicknesses of paper/cardstock into its stride, and cut out the various parts of the template. I used the dress part to draw around onto some paper I’ve been hoarding for over a year. This paper is gorgeous, a shiny metallic gold background with red flocked pattern. On the dress form itself I used a touch of Sahara Sand Memento ink to give the ‘skin’ a hint of colouring.
This is a lovely free standing card, I adorned it with a few pearl beads strung onto fine twine as a belt and a piece of chain with leaf charm as a necklace.
