Good morning my lovelies, hope you're having a good weekend. I haven't been around much over the past few days as my internet is really playing up, not sure if its the weather or what but hopefully it will soon be back to normal. Anyway back to the important stuff, we've got a new challenge starting at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is 'Lots of Layers' . Of course you don't have to use PanPastels but we love it when you do :-) As usual our lucky winner will receive a fab PanPastel starter kit from Berni our lovely sponsor at Your Creativity Store although due to the latest increase in postage, the prize will only be available to UK entrants but of course there's always the honour of the PanPastel winners badge for your blog. Here's my DT project for this weeks challenge:
My lovely friend Shirley made a similar project to this a few weeks ago (have a look here, its fab!) and I just had to have a go at making one, Shirl was inspired by this video tut by the talented Miranda. I've used stamps by Indigo Blu and Chocolate Baroque, all the layers have been coloured with PanPasels (of course lol) in Magenta and Turquoise and distressed with a little black. I overstamped with a gorgeous button card stamp from Indigo Blu and added a little black velvet ribbon belt with a blingy buckle.
I popped my dress form up on a little cake stand thingy from the pack of Wendy Vecci art parts that i've been hoarding for ages, I gave it a coat of Maimeri Gesso, coloured with Pans and stamped with a fabric texture stamp from Indigo blu.. I've added lots of embellies, including paper flower, flowers made with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and a silicone mould. I've also added a few charms, a butterfly, a teeny tiny coathanger and a fan. I've also added lace, velvet ribbon and some iridescent bead trim. The sentiment is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque and I've popped it in a little frame from the pound shop. The dinky little cotton reel is from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, wound with some embroidery silk from my cross stitching days.
