Oi you.... Button It!

Sorry I wasn't being rude, it just made a catchy title! So now I have your attention I can wish you a Happy Easter Monday, I hope everyone has had a nice few days off. Sorry if you've had to work!
Simon Says Stamp'n'Show some 'Buttons' this week
So I used one of the fab new 'that special touch' mica masks I got @ Ally Pally to alter an old bingo board.
With the use of some iron ferro and the button mask I created a textured lower half, while covering the top with an old dress making pattern.
I jazzed up the dress form diecut with enamel accents and sticky canvas, and gave it a ribbon sari outfit finished with lace.
I sprayed a strip of rose ribbon with sailboat blue and meadow colour wash, and covered the join between the texture and patterned edge.
I also added a canvas rosette and cotton spool. And finished by adding some note paper to make this the perfect sewing room accessory.
Have a lovely day x
