About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Model figure.....

When I see a cage type dress form it reminds me of a skeleton. 
So I created my own.

Haunted Design House has a challenge called Skeletal Remains.
Just as the title suggests....
you are to use something to do with skeletal remains, bones, etc....

I stamped the dress form with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I sprinkled some red embossing powder on the piece after embossing the white and heated it from the bottom as to not blow it around.  Kinda looks like blood splatters.
Using my Cricut I cut the skull and arms using October 31st cartridge.  
Punched out the flowers for her hair head.  
Inked the edges of the skeletal remains.  
Layered onto a card base and added a white border punch along the edge.
Hand cut a flag and wrote the word "DIVA".

This is probably what most models would look like if they ate one less meal....

Until later, designers.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!
