Kard Krazy's Tag Tuesday--Mannequins
Louise invited a guest hostess to set the challenge for this week's Tag Tuesday. Her name is Sarah and you can find her blog, Vintage Figments here. her challenge was to make a tag using a mannequin template. A couple of days ago I received a post on my Google Reader from Magic Moonlight Studio Free Images. This beautiful image was one of several they were offering for use and I grabbed it up quick. Isn't it gorgeous!
I copied the photo and the template onto a word doc and played with the sizes until I thought the image would cover the template. I printed them out side by side, cut them apart, and then lined up my image with the template by holding it up to a light. This is really old school I know, but hey--it works. :) I do have a light box, but was too lazy to go dig it out.
I cut around the template and then embellished the image with some Kaisercraft pearls, lace, and ribbon fiber. She's so pretty I really didn't want to cover much of her up, but I'm really pleased with how it came out. I wasn't sure which photo I liked best so here's a second one.
