Dressmaker for Crafty Calendar

Hello lovely peeps

We have a new challenge starting today at Crafty Calendar and it's an easy theme this month

Anything Goes

Our sponsor is Stamping Studio  and the prize is one image from each artist. Join their Facebook group Stamping Studio for freebies and specials. 

I've used Dressmaker - Mari Digis and coloured it in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers

Skin: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Hair: 3250 (Graph'It), Caramel, Sandstone
Suit: Olive Green, Soft Khaki
Blouse: Ice Grey 3 & 1
Pincushion: Crimson
Dummy: Caramel, Sandstone, Blush, Ivory
Dress: Watermelon, Pale Pink

The papers are from Dress Shop, a retired 8x8 paper pad from Lili of the Valley. First I cut them to the size I wanted then inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink

then went around the edges with my stab & stitch tool (I used a wedge of paper underneath to protect my cutting mat).

I joined up the holes with a grey pencil

and then roughened the paper edges with my scissors.

After layering up everything on a 6"x6" scalloped card I stamped out the cotton reel sentiment onto white card and cut it out - this is from an old Anna Marie Designs set. I punched a hole in this and added a little pink organza ribbon. Some co-ordinating buttons from my stash finish it off.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
 The Ribbon Girls June any image
Deep Ocean Challenge #158 Lots of layers
Sisterhood of Crafters  Buttons

Fairy Tale #171 hobby
