Over at the Play Date Cafe, the challenge for this week is color splash. I chose to use copper as my splash of color on a black and white background. First I wanted to jump right in and alter something I had around the house. I found a decorative dressform I bought years ago and had forgotten about. It was so forgotten, it was still in the box with tags and all. Once I covered it in a white and black taffeta, which I had purchased from JoAnn's, I went to work embellishing it. I made a flower using some wired ribbon and cut some velvet leaves using pinking shears. Now, I have to say, she is a cutie! So much more stylish than the original, boring black cover. Since I can't fully break away from making cards, I created a matching card using leftovers. Now without further ado, here are my entries.
Here are some before-and-after pictures of the dressform.
The "Cherish" card is also entered into the Card Positioning System Sketch challenge for this week.
