WICKED WEDNESDAY #15 - DRESSES/DRESS FORMS

This weeks challenge details can be found HERE.
I am thoroughly enjoying taking part each week in the Wicked Wednesday challenges. Last week their random org. chose me as the winner, whoopee. But the team picked me for their top 3 (it seems to have become 2) and other whoopee.......
I found this week's challenge to be so much fun. Here is my ATC:
The base 'dress form' is cut from mount board and covered in Tim Holtz crowded attic paper. The edges were then distressed with walnut stain DI. I cut Tim's dress form  and caged bird dies from shrink plastic and they turned out just the right size. I coloured each with either paint dabber or DIs and then stamped a really delicate swirl, by Inkadinkado, on the body of the dress form. I wanted to use a bobbin for the form to stand on but the one I had was out of proportion. Only one thing to do - call in reinforcement, namely hubby, to make a smaller one!! I assembled it all using multi matt medium, added some lace and sticky gems and voila, done.
Why not have a go at these challenges. After all, if you don't really like ATCs, remember you can always use them as card toppers.
