Artful Couture Tag

Feb 16, 2011

Where do I even start… this 4.25″ x 8.5″ tag is FILLED with loads of inspiration! The dress form, button and spool are part of Tim’s new Sizzix Alterations ~Sewing Room Bigz Die. Those of you who know me know I am FAR from being a “couture” girl but for some reason seeing the dress form and other items made me think couture and I thought this theme would be a fun twist. And since Tim released the hanger clips it was only too perfect… “artful couture” was it’s destiny.

I like how the book page flower boa adds just a tad bit more dimension to the tag… nothing cuter than flowers made of book pages. Then accenting the spool with one of his pearl baubles finished that simple cutie off perfectly. Adding glossy accents to the inked areas of the dress form made this piece pop even more. It’s amazing how a subtle detail can really impact a project. I should have taken a before and after shot so you could see. I think the glossy accents popped the dress form up another notch. The tissue tape covering the dress form is inked and sprinkled with crystal coarse glitter. You knew I had to add that someplace… right? Then I accented around the edges with Platinum Stickles. I believe I am going to frame this tag and hang it in my scraproom… I really love all the elements and design if I don’t say so myself.
