I wanted to share what I made for a swap this month... it is a mystery swap, so we could make whatever we wanted. I chose to make these cute little dress forms using the Tim Holtz Alterations dies: Caged Bird and Sewing Room.
I learned how to make these when I took a class from someone who took a class from Tim Holtz!!!
I think that they are so cute! I cut the dress form out of chipboard and then stained them using Walnut Stain Distress Stain. I used various colors of the Distress Stains to color Sticky Back Canvas. I then cut out the top part of the dress form. I adhered the Sticky Back Canvas to the chipboard dress form. The "skirt" is cut using the bird cage and Grungepaper. I used Crackle Paint, Paint Dabbers, & Distress Stain to color the skirts. All the ribbon was originally white... Distress Stain fixed that though!
