Dress forms

Ok, so I have the TH die that I love. I have only cut a couple of these out and havent really played around with them too much other then adding them to a scrap book page or two.
The other day I was blogging and ran across Amy's blog.

The dress form that she has on her blog was just adorable.
Her dress form was padded and I had asked her about it and she stated that she received it from a company that is no longer in business.
I was going try and find something to pad mine with, but decided to go ahead and just play around and do a couple without padding.
So here are the two that I have done so far.
The first one I did I actually glimmer misted it and then embossed it to give it a shine. I then took a little doily that I had and I cut it in half. From there I just glued everything in place. I actually added some stiff felt to the back to secure most of the gluing in place.
The second one I just painted and glimmer misted. I then took ribbon and just started layering. Added a little feather and a little stone and WA LA....done.......
CUTENESS....not sure what I will do with these....but had fun making them!
