Finally on Form!

Dress form that is....
OMG how much am I loving the new 'sewing room' plate
I finally got to have a proper play with my vagabond and so far so frickin awesome.
It cuts through mount board like butter, and denim too, and all the while i have no pain in my wrists, it's just a dream.. If you are thinking about getting one i would definitely say go for it.
Right back to what i made...
I joined in with this weeks Tuesday Throwdown as there theme is 'Tag It'
I started with a distress stained tag, The dress form is cut from mount board, and i gathered some vintage doily edging to create the skirt.
The sentiment is one from Tim's new set, and the embossing folder is the 5x7 goochie script by cuttlebug.
I feel these may become a bit of an obsession so i apologies now if in a week or so you've seen far to many of them lol Project 2 is already underway lol
TTFN
Stay Inky!

Great tag, love the dressform shape with the little doily round it!

Enjoy your Vagabond! (just got my first diecutter -the Cuttlebug V2- and have been embossing everything in sight!)

I could never get bored with your creations Minxy, even when you use the same things they all turn out different, so keep showing us.
