Little Miss Tag

Hi everyone,

Time flies by so fast, it's Monday allready. Hopefully you've had a wonderful weekend. I'm in London now, enjoying a few days away. Although I'm abroad this minute, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has a real fun challenge this week. A die cut challenge! So take out your favorite dies or the die cuts that you've layering around for ages. It's time to have some fun with lots and lots die cuts! Well only if you want to of course!



I don't very often make girly things, but when I went through my paperpads for inspiration, I saw the Bo Bunny Little Miss 6x6 paper pad and I knew that I wanted to make something with it. And make a tag with it. The tag is just slightly longer than 6 inches, so I cut the lower edge off, so now it fits.



I always have the most fun to dress up the dress form of the Sewing Room. This time I painted the top and base dark brown and covered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Such a cool effect those crackles. On top of that I made a layer with sticky back canvas, so it looks like it's a real dress form. From the H&M catalog I got my inspiration for the dress. First I traced the dress form and then sketched the dress.





The hearts are die cut from the Little Miss paperpad, the dies are exclusive of Simon Says Stamp! I've sewn them on with my sewing machine.
