Good Form

I love the new sewing-themed images Dina Kowal designed for Impression Obsession, and I especially love the dress form with the dogwoods. It is just so feminine and "springy."

Impression Obsession Good Form A13104
Impression Obsession Dogwood Dress Form E13084

Versafine Black
Colorbox Chalk Creamy Brown

Other Materials:
1 ½” circle punch
1 ¾” circle punch
finger dauber
foam tape

  • Stamp dress form onto cream paper with black ink (use an inkpad that works well for watercoloring such as Versafine)
  • Punch out cream and green circles
  • Stamp saying onto cream circle using black ink
  • Paint the dress form with grey/green and pink watercolor paint. Hint…this isn’t watercolor paper, so don’t go crazy adding watercolor over and over to the paper.  If you add too much water, you will tear the paper.
  • Edge the two cream pieces with brown ink and a dauber
  • Layer the pieces of the card
  • Pop up the circles with foam tape
