Feminine and Fancy

Hi you all! Today is my first day as member of the DT at Try it on Tuesdays. I was very pleased to be asked to join their team of lovely ladies.


The theme for the next 2 weeks is 'feminine and fancy', so you have plenty of time to join in!
I have made a giant tag, cut from black paper mounted onto pink card. The black paper has been stamped with various feminine accouterments (stamps from Chocolate Baroque and Hampton Arts) using fresco chalk ink in off white. Actually, the colour is called 'Medici Marble', but I think off white describes it better!
The TH dress-form has been die-cut from cardboard and painted white. The edges have been distressed with Victorian velvet. The 'arms' have been made from silver pipe-cleaners, and the snazzy dress and accessories were in my stash, waiting to be used....




Remember - always dress to impress! 
( bold words written while sitting here in baggy, old PJs and slippers!)

I am also linking to Fashionable Stamping Challenges (anything goes)

Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  6. How exciting! Congratulations, Valerie! This piece is absolutely out of this world - the dress alone blew my socks off and I had to hang on to my skirt when I saw the hat and the rest of her costume. Great Job. You will have so much fun on the DT. hugs, Donna
