Summer Ice Cream Colors - Challenge 28

This week's challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges blog is Summer Ice Cream Colors - Challenge #28 - and it is being sponsored by Cottage Crafts. Please be sure to stop by and say hello! For the challenge, we were asked to create something using the colors of our favorite ice cream. My favorite flavors [yes, plural :)] are Strawberry & French Vanilla. For some reason, thinking of those two colors brought to mind a picture with a sewing theme. So below is my interpretation.

This wall hanging is a piece of wood measuring 6 3/4" L x 4 3/4" W. I painted it with acrylic paint then spritzed Tattered Angels Mist in Lemon Zest. The side wood decorations are painted with acrylic paint and were also spritzed with the Lemon Zest. The Sizzix Dress Form has been inked with a swirl template and has ivory lace & pearls on the bottom. The scissors, spool, saying and needle have been stamped, heat embossed and cut. Lace, pearls, buttons & hand made flowers decorate the piece randomly. Copper wire & pearls were used to hang the piece. Thank you for stopping by & hope you like the project!!! :)
