Craftless fog

I am trying my darnedest to get out of this craftless fog I've been in lately.

Today I made a card and a wall hanging. 

First the wall hanging...


I'd been wanting to play with a dress form for a while now so today I finally did. 
I used lace & sequins from Creating is Fun and a piece of ribbon I had laying around.
Dressing it was not the easiest thing I've ever done but it was fun! 

I added a few drops of buttercup liquid pearls to the top but didn't like the look so I smeared it and since I liked that I added more to the bottom and side. 

The flower is one I made a while ago with patterned paper and Cameo diecuts.

A close up of the dress...


The images are from Magic Moonlight Studio Free Images.
Blanca always has such beautiful vintage photo's to work with.



I used vintage photo distress embossing powder on the grunge board key hole.
I love the look!

The card...


The piece of paper that I used for the tag background is paper I made myself in Gimp. 
The rose image is from Gecko Galz

The lace is, again, from Creating is Fun.
And I used another Magic Moonlight Studio image. 


The wheat piece is from Pro 31 by way if my good friend Heather

The pearl piece is also from Pro 31 (direct route).
They are a cream/ivory color but I hit them with watermelon and terra cotta Alcohol inks. 
Not liking how sticky they were when I was done I took a baby wipe and wiped them off leaving them a perfect color without the stickiness.

I'm thinking "lucky me"!


I used another piece of my paper to stamp the inside sentiment on.
