The challenge at CCT this week is So Charming and we'd like to see your projects which feature charms. I haven't done a card this week instead I decided to decorate a mannequin which has been lurking in my crafty stash for about 6 years now!! I painted the mannequin with gesso and acrylic paints and then stamped the various Stampin Up stamps onto tissue with Versacolor inkpads which I then heated embossed to set the ink. It would of been easier to use dye inks but I specifically wanted these colours to match my daughters bedroom. I then stuck the images onto the mannequin using Mod Podge and added a charm, piece of lace and the crystally trim (not too sure what the proper name is !). To finish off the base I added a few flowers, a pearl which I coloured to match with Copics and a grungepaper butterfly coloured with the same inks as the stamped images. Luckily the girls love it and I have now got a couple of others to do for birthday pressies.
I love this stamp set by Stampin Up, the images are so pretty and the set also includes a fab swirl stamp. Hubby has got me some Stampin Up goodies for Christmas I can't wait to see what he chose from the rather long list I gave him!!!
Have a great week, i can't believe how fast the time is going at the moment!
