Vintage Dressmaker Form and Accessories

I've been wanting to create a card with this dressmaker form from Sugar Creek Hollow and after deciding to enter the Midnight Madness Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I first decided to pair this image with the bonnet and scissors image also from SCH.
I painted my bonnet with Luminarte H20's and then sponged on some sepia distressed ink. The dressmaker form and scissors were colored with Copics. My design paper is "Ancestry" from K and Company and the background DP is from Cosmo Cricket. I liked the buttons in the MM sketch challenge, but decided to only use them in the upper right-hand corner. A peach satin ribbon, dewdrops and corners cut with a Cuttlebug die complete my design.
Copics:
E37, E33, E31, E00, C1, Y28
Thanks for visiting!

Yet another card that you have amazed me with. I can't believe you coloured the bonnet, dress form and scissors.. I honestly thought they were stickers until I read you had coloured them.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
