My Mixed Media Mannequin....

Morning! :)
I absolutely loved making this mannequin, and was really pleased with it! So much so, I had real troubles forcing myself to pack it up and send it off to IndigoBlu HQ! Lol
I have used some newly released IndigoBlu stamps on here, as well as some trusty old favourite products too.

The back of her wings - 
...and Kroma Crackle

The front of her wings - 

The mannequin -
coated with
Black Gee Sso Good Gesso
I have stamped with Flitterglu onto tissue, using the 
IndigoBlu Laurel Leaf Stamp...then gilded, 
and added it to the mannequin using Slap It On. Left it to dry and then 
splattered the mannequin with coordinating paint colours. 

I have stamped and gilded onto some Organza, 
and then attached it to the mannequin, draped to make a dress.
Made a fabric 'waist cape' - stamped it with Laurel leaf stamps 
using English Cottage Paint and Mega Flake.

I gilded the stick part of the stand, using 
a brand new background stamp - 

Added a few metal embellishments (which were gilded first)
and there it is! 

There are lots of new things being released soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more
news on the website, DT blogs and Facebook pages! 

I'm entering this into:

Craft Stamper - Anything Goes - Use a stamp somewhere
Simon Says Stamp - Stencil It 
Fussy & Fancy - Fashion

Have a great weekend!
Happy Crafting
