Shabby Chic Dress Form Card


Just a quick post of my latest make:

I tried something new to me: making shabby chic flowers with ribbon.

I used left over pieces of ribbon to make three flowers and the rest is just randomly arranged pieces or various ribbons...

I used metal flowers for the centers of my fabric flowers and randomly covered everything with gesso. The chipboard dress form is also covered with gesso and crackle paint.

The corner metal filigree is covered with crakle paint.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Card Mania Challenge #88 Layer it

Deep Ocean challenge #146 "Anything New" (Metal filigree and dress form are new)

Frilly and Funkie New Year Inspiration (my new year inspiration is to create more than last year and try new things, like those fabric flowers...)

Kartkowe ABC challenge "Aquamarine"

Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #155 Anything Goes with Ribbon and Trim

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...
