A Wall Hanging for my Craft Room and News of a Super Giveaway


I have been a very Good Girl and kept my Craft Room extremely tidy for the last week (hope I can keep up this standard) so I decided to make myself a wall hanging for the room.







The Backing Paper was a sheet from The Tim Holtzs Ideaology Kraft Resist Paper Stash, which I picked up last time I was at J & C Creations, I distressed around the edge with Walnut Strain Distress Ink.  The Dressmakers Dummy was cut twice with the Tim Holtzs Alterations Sewing Room Die once from cream card and then with brown card, I layered the cream body of the dummy onto the brown base once it had been distressed with the same ink, then just tucked a couple of feathers from my stash behind the finished dummy. 

The sentiment was stamped onto Kraft Card which was then torn and crumpled up and distressed, the sentiment is from Sam Pooles Art Phrases A5 Sheet.  The Tape Measure ribbon is by Creative Expressions and was bought from Crafts U Love, although I think they are now out of stock.  The delicious Silk Crush Champagne Ribbon is available from Creative Studio.
Now some news of  a great Give away from The Ribbon Girl.
