Vintage Mannequin with Hat

The theme for today's challenge at Pattie's Creations is Vintage. I wanted to create something a bit different for this challenge, so I altered a cigar box.  I took pages from a very old book and decoupaged them to cover the entire box. The "stamps" all around the box are from a sheet of Graphic 45 paper that I cut up.  I wanted to replicate the feel of an old travel trunk covered with images from all the far away places visited.  The image, Vintage Mannequin with Hat from Pattie's Esty store, is colored with Copic markers.  I printed the image twice and fussy cut both out as I wanted to partially pop dot the mannequin head and hat from the table (as you can see in this photo).

I also created several roses with the Rose Creations dies from Spellbinders and added them to the corner.

You have two weeks to upload your Vintage creations to Pattie's Creations challenge blog.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for you too.

Other ingredients: Copics (E30, R29, R20, YR30    R05, R08, R89    YG05, YG07, YR21, YR23, YR24);  Spica Glitter pen (gold); Spellbinder's Label Eight #4; Distress Ink (tea dye); Smooch Spritz (limolicious)
