Dress Form

I tore into my $3 dress from from the sale table at Hobby Lobby today. I used Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage papers & stamps, and AccuCut dies.

The papers I used were from the "Earthy" paper pad. I love the warm colors so they just set the tone , and I went from there. She started kind of prim and proper but went "funky"on me. lol
I found this little photo frame charm that I've had forever. I stamped the design I wanted using some of the smaller design stamps from the "Clear ART stamps", Cherub set. I love taking those stamps and repeating the image to make another design, to fit my needs for the particular project I'm working on. After I added the stamped image, I filled it in with Diamond Glaze.
Then I stamped the wings (from the same set), cut them out, went over the wings with my Sakura stardust pen, then brushed on diamond glaze. I added them to the back of the frame charm.

I used the AccuCut Fring die for her skirt and them used one side of my 12x12 scallop die to cut the edge of the fring to a scallop. ( I used that die SO MUCH!) I love it!

I added lots of gems to the flower centers the neckline and larger ones on the arms.
I used tule for the top and wrapped it thought the charm in the back. ( I had stamped an image in that also and filled it with diamond glaze.

This is the bottom. I used a watch face to put on another chain around her neck ,that hangs accross her shoulder and down to her right side. I used the "Bingo" image from the "Wacky and Wonderful" image book. I filled it in with diamond glaze also.
I was so mad at myself because I had a little glass bottle(7 gypsies),that I've had for years and never used ,..that I wanted to hang in place of the watch face. I had filled it with little gems , glitter and diamond glaze and was waiting for it to try , so I could attach it...BUT... I decided I needed to tap it on the counter to get ONE tiny little air bubble out, and... I broke it!
Sometimes ,as my parents would have said... " you just need to leave well enough alone!) lol

This was so fun to do... now it's been bugging me all day, that there were'nt lots more of these, because they would be a fun class to teach. I'm keeping my eyes peeled.
Hope everyone is having a good day!

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Задумались о презентах на юбилейчик младшему сыну, ему три года, разные-машинки-конструкторы у него есть навалом, он любит мышонка Тич. Я отыскала типа такой игрушки, только мишку http://mishkiland.ru/subcategory_item.php?id=603 , кто-нибудь покупал такого? Стоит брать? Или посоветуйте что-либо ещё. Не дайте малышу остаться без подарка от папы с мамы с папой.
