Blue Fern Studios Dress Form Chipboard



As I was working on this project for Blue Fern Studios, the dress form chipboard fell on top of this pretty green flat ribbon rose band that I've been saving for a future project.  An "Aha" moment came to me, and I quicky started ripping a part the flat rose ribbons with the seam ripper...I was going to make a skirt for my dressform.  I tied a bead on the end of each of the curly ribbons to give them weight to hold them down.  The chipboard pieces was painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint, inked along the edges.  A small Martha Stewart Stencil was applied on the stand of the dress form with some light texture paste and Rub'N Buff. The small Martha Stewart stencils are just perfect for Blue Fern Studios chipboard and they come in a variety of designs. The white butterfly on the bodice is from Prima.  My niece just painted her bedroom a light green color, and I hope she'll hang this canvas piece on her wall.
