Let's Ink it Up - Die cuts/Punches

I have made another card using my Tim Holtz dressform die and a fabulous EK button and needle border punch for this month's Let's ink it up challenge.

I die cut the dress form on grungepaper and then again with sticky backed canvas to make the dress.  I stained the dressform and the dress using distress stains. The next step was to stamp a pattern on the dress with archival ink.

After I'd stuck the dress on the dressform I added a ribbon belt and frill and glued some German scrap along the neckline.

The background card is SU stamped with SU Bliss stamp.

I punched the button border twice and gold embossed the whole border and added a piece of plain border on top.

What a beautiful day...... but I'm going back to bed to nurse the stupid cough and cold that I have that just won't budge.

Thanks for looking X

Love that dress form - funny thing is I am playing with mine at the moment too - and using SB canvas! Great minds!
Love how you have dressed yours and what a good idea the German scrap was.
Envious of that border punch.
Hope your cold is soon better - know how you feel, I am still sniffing.
