I started by dry brushing PaperArtsy Nougat paint on the rectangular Art Part. When it was dry I stamped the background stamp from the 'Art by Hand' set in Sepia Archival Ink. Then I sanded the whole piece and edged it in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The scalloped Art Part was painted in Chocolate Pudding and treated as before. The manikin was cut from kraft card using Tim Holtz's Sewing Room die. I glued on some calico and then cut round the shape, lightly frayed the edges with my fingernail and then edged it all in Gathered Twigs, making sure I coloured the exposed areas of the card. Around it's waist I tied some thick string tying it through a button. The button was also cut from the Sewing Room die, dry brushed with Nougat Fresco Finish paint and clear embossed.
The cotton reel was also inked with Gathered Twigs and I wound a thick string around it. The advert was stamped onto kraft card. Please do pop on over and see what the new DT have made for this fortnight and, thank you as always for stopping by!
