Are you ready for a new Tuesday Throwdown? Our challenge is a bit different today,
NO stamped sentiment. You can use a handwritten, stencil, rub on etc.
Our sponsor for today is Mc Mahon Five Designs. Be sure to stop by and check
out their Great selection of images! I started sewing when I was 8 and love
old dressmaker forms and sewing notions, etc. I chose this lovely image called
dressed dummy. Don't you just love it?

I decided to make it a little funky so I used this piece of Webster paper. I love
the color of the checks with the fun cherries, so I stitched it on the cream base.
Next I water colored the dress an aqua color and added
the red stickles to the bows and a little red jewel for the necklace. After I cut it
out I added the faux stitching and foam dotted on.

Next cut the little aqua border and added the scrim which was dyed, gathered
and stitched on. Added the ribbon and bow. I had this fun little mirror so added
the red stickles to it and put in the center of the bow. Also used silver stickles
for the metal stand. I computer generated a sentiment and
punched out with the oval.
Supplies used:
Webster pages & SU papers, stickles,
dyed seam binding, misc jewel, mirror & foam dots,
Spellbinder Label #20 and SU oval punch.

Entering Challenges:
Make it Monday: Anything goes
The Pink Elephant: Stitching
Paper Playtime: Anything goes
Anything Goes: Birthday/Celebration
