Spicy Supply Challenge - Twine


One of the cards I made at a Crop for Cancer Saturday, here in Halifax. It was an all day crop ;  9am to 11:30pm. Didn't quite make it to 11:30! I arrived at 9am, and ended up leaving around 8:30. Great fun. Crop 'til you drop! Thanks to Karen and her crew.

I did the watercolour background technique, using Distress Inks. Used TH new Visual Artistry set, Seamless Experience, TH Good Thoughts sentiment, Stampin' Up! dresses stamp, TH Idea-ology Hanger, and Philosophy Tag, "Simplify 7526". The 2 large buttons on the bottom are actually stickers from TH Salvage Stickers: Crowded Attic. The belt around her dress is twine. Check out the other entries at the Gingersnap Creations twine challenge.

I was selected as one of ten Ginger Gems for this challenge! I am honoured! Go see GC102 Twine Challenge

Here's a video showing how to make your own dress form:


Have a great week, and thanks for looking!
