Woodware week: Isa

What can you do with a papier maché torso, a glass jar, some fabric and a few stamps... well... here's your answer. 
Oh [fine print on} and you will need Isa'sArt sewing expertise too [fine print off] 
(I know I don't.... but boy, would I like to have this in my house!!). 
I know it's not something that everyone will tackle this afternoon, and Isa did tell me "if you don't want to post it, that's ok", but how could I do that? It's too beautiful to miss, don't you think?
After so much work, it would be a shame not to have it on display on this blog ;)
I wonder if Woodware would ever have thought that their stamps would be used that way :o)
Here's a few details for you... 

Oh do I love that little quote "Have a fabulous Day!" and the lovely little roses too. Both coming from a Woodware clear stamp plate: TAG
So my next thought was... "what to do with it?" ... a tag or label.. ok... but I had to take it further... 
Wanted to alter a glass jar but bigger, take it to the next level... wanted some sewing involved... so ...

I picked a glass jar, but also added the papier maché torso to it

I used the "have a fabulous day" to make a kind of necklace but also used it to stamp on the fabric for one of the dress layers... can you see it? look closer...
and a few hours later...after a loooot of sewing and layering... voilà 

and I hope you all .... 

For her sample, Isa used:
