Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone! Well I got to play in some challenges today! Yeah! With football and cheerleading started, we have games every Saturday, so I knew if I wanted to play, I better do it today! The Talented Tina at TravelingMama started a new Inspiration Challenge. She posted some pictures from the Medina in Morocco. The pictures are really amazing! There are so many pretty things in there! :) The picture I choose for my inspiration, was the one that her 4 year old took! :) You can actually see them stretching the string in the picture, so cool, but something else that caught my eye, was the mannequins in the back ground! I have never been to the Medina in Morocco, but I would love to one day! So for my card I thought about, what you might see in a little boutique here in Texas! I stamped some houndstooth on white cardstock, to make it look like fabric, added some ribbon at the top and some tulle at the bottom ( I have been seeing the tulle at the bottom of skirts lately) ! Then I pleated it, to look like a skirt and made a little top to match and hung it on a mannequin and added some pearls! And of course a little price tag! :) I really like how it turned out! Ok, so here it is!
Supplies:

Paper- white, black, turquoise, & cream cardstock

Stamp- Hero Arts- houndstooth, PTI- mega mixed messages, Studio G- Style stamp

Ink- StazOn- jet black

Accessories- tulle, white stitching- sewing machine, black grosgrain ribbon, hand cut mannequin & top, crocheting thread, pearls

Have a Blessed night!

Oh my goodness Winter! How cute is this? I absolutely love it! I have been on the lookout for mannequin stuff to use on cards! I saw a card a while ago with a chipboard mannequin... loved it! This is so cute and creative!

So cute! When I first looked at the skirt I thought it was fabric until I read the description on how you made it!

Love your creative take on this challenge! Awesome! :) Now I'm trying to figure out what I would do with the same theme: stuff you'd see at a boutique in SLC. Hmmmm.
