I am so excited about Lindy's Stamp Gang February Color Challenge. The colors are awesome...well they are always exciting to me.
For my submission, I knew I did not want to create hearts or too much valentine theme for my project. I wanted to challenge myself even further and do something else using the colors. I decide to make a little Burgundy dress and using the phrase"playing dress up"; something we do as kids. In my story, the dress has come out to play, while it's owner is away, which is why I have home interior theme. I know it sounds silly, but fun, nonetheless.
How it's made
I used a cigar box. For the walls, I used a thick, textured, handmade paper; it nice and porous. The window is made of watercolor paper. For the the walls and window I used the following Lindy's Flat Fabio colors: Sidewalk Chalk, Cafe au Lait, South Shore Sand and Moon Shadow Mist Buccaneer Bronze.
For the outside view of the sky I used Starbursts: Tiffany Lou Blue, Clam Bake Beige and Tibetan Poppy Teal.
The dress is made of handmade paper; which is thicker and stronger than tissue paper and I have colored it using Starburst Maple Crimson. I sculpted the dress bodice out of clay, I then created a cast out of paper mache and the paper dress was glued to the bodice.
The table is made made of water color paper and has been colored with Sidewalk Chalk and South Shore Sand. The vase is made of paper clay and has been colored with Sidewalk Chalk. The flowers are made of velvet and are from Petaloo.
