Be Yourself – Altered Torso Tag

Altered Torso - Be Yourself

This week, Sentimental Sundays challenged us to try a new technique or style, so I delved into Kard Krazy’s Tag Tuesday Challenge and created my first altered torso – combining it with Heart 2 Heart’s Tag You’re It Challenge for good measure!

My design began with the fabulous Dressmaker’s Mannequin Template found at Mirkwood Designs.

Next, I chose pink and black for my color scheme since they represent the quintessential feminine color combo for me.

Then the fun began! I pulled out some of my favorite products – played with a “what will I ever do with this one” stamp set – and went to town.

If you’ve never created made one of these before, why not give it a try – you’ll have a blast!
