Tim Holtz dress form tags

Here we go again with another swap......this one is for the Tim Holtz
dress forms and tags. I signed up for two groups for this swap, so I
decided to go with two different designs.

                                                     TAG ONE:

This is my tag for group one. I decided to do this one Vintage 1950's. 
Thank God for online resources! I used the internet and searched for 
1950's sewing magazines and ads and then after I found what I liked......
.I printed the images in thumbnail size. I then literally created this mini sewing magazine ( which has pages in it that you can actually flip
 through of sewing instructions, sewing machine ads etc.) I also printed
 a tiny picture of a Simplicity dress pattern, cut around it to create a 
small pattern envelope and stuffed it with an actual pattern. ( I have way
 to much time on my hands! ha ha) The spool of thread was hand cut
 from wood veneer paper I purchased at Michael's and then I wound 
thread onto it. The dress form is cut from black velvet coated mat board
 I scored at a frame shop. Finally I stamped and inked the tag to give it 
that aged worn look! Gotta Love Tim Holtz distress inks.....I used tea dye and antique linen both on this tag.


This tag is my take on "mild" Steampunke! I used DCWV Tattered 
Time paper and the Tim Holtz Birdcage die. Both of which were the inspiration for  this tag. The dress form itself is cut from Red velvet
coated mat board I also scored at the frame shop. I purposely used
a RED dress form on this tag VS a black one....I like the contrast in 
color!  I hand cut the wings from black glittered cardstock, stamped 
the gears on the T-shirt, used sheer black ribbon to tie around the
waist and then added a sheer black flower embellishment, and bling. 
I have NOT decided if I want to stamp a sentiment or something on 
this tag yet ....I am still mulling it around in my twisted little mind! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by....please leave a comment....I appreciate any and
 all comments and constructive criticism! I would Love to hear from you!
