Sketch Challenge

The sketch my friend picked for the month of March was the 1st one on this page from Page Maps. I really like the way they do their sketches up with so much detail.....and there's lots to pick from as well.
I've become a procrastinator of late - and didn't start working on this till a few days before it was "due."  BUT I had a lot of fun with it and was able to incorporate a few of my favorite things....i.e. a dictionary page, dress form, fun embellishments!
Here's the finished product:
I know.....that tag on the right isn't in the sketch -- but you'll forgive me for adding just one little thing to it, won't you?
Supplies used:
  • The dress background came from Mel Stampz
  • Dictionary Page
  • Lacy material
    • skirt
  • Pearls
  • Hat stamp (I think it's Anna Griffin)
  • Blue embossing powder
    • hat
  • Blue Metallic Bic Marker 
    • around dress form/tag/DP - on the little tab
  • DP - Classics (K & Company)
I searched "high and low" on the web for a dress form template, but couldn't find exactly what I wanted.  Ended up making my own and I'll share it with you in case your interested in using it.
 If you use it - please link back here-- and leave a comment so we can all see your creative work!
As usual this little challenge was with a friend - click here to see what she made.

Very nice! I love dress forms, too, as you probably could have guessed. :)

That lace skirt is really neat, and I love how you incorporated the hat stamp into it!
