Dress Tag Card with Mannequin

Hello all, back today with a classic Dips' card - a Dress Tag with Mannequin.
Card Recipe:
Stamp: Katy Sue Designs 
Tools: Tonic Studios Elegant Vine Square Die Set, Mannequin Tag DieSimplicity Dotty Border Punch, Layering Square DiesFanciful Flourish, Grand Calibur
Colouring Mediums: Promarker Pens, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads
Paper and Card: Tonic Studios Watch the Birdie, Conqueror, Stardream, Textured Pearl
Embellishments: flatback pearls
I think you all know I love a dress card especially when paired with a mannequin too!  I've reached for this Mannequin Tag Die so often but I do like to do something a little different each time.  So this time I used the mannequin die to cut out a mannequin form in plain oyster card, then I cut it out again using an offcut of patterned papper and trimmed off the stand elements and then pieced the two together.  You may just see that the patterned paper is also used as a background layer behind the Elegant Vine Sqaure base that I've used for the main focal layer.







To create the main stamped image tag, I traced around the tag die and then extended it slightly at the base.  I cut it out and then used the my dotty border punch to create the scalloped edge.

Finally, I also used off-cuts of card to cut out several swirls using the Fanciful Flourish die set, which I scattered randomly on the base card, and you can see them peeking out from behind the main mat.  It's a great way to create subtle texture. Pin It Now!
