Fashion – With Everything Thrown At It

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress;  dress impeccably and they remember the woman”

Have you ever made something and you can’t stop playing with it …well this was one of those makes.  I find making things which are very elegant orientated my type of thing and when it involves stamping, inking, stenciling, colouring, painting, crackle and designing … well I couldn’t be more happy.

So many things thrown at her but soooo pleased with the end result.  Now usually when I’m in the ‘throw everything at it mood’  it turns into one horrible mess but not this time … well, in my opinion it looks rather tasty.

(Has anyone seen ‘The Good Wife’ if you have then you will remember one of the judges kept quoting “In my opinion”)

 Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Fashion” which was picked by our wonderful DT sister Laura.  Wahoo right up my street sweets!!!!!

Found this image already stamped in my bit box but nothing had been done to her.  (Not sure how long she was in the box as the stamp set is soooo old but you can still buy on ebay here.)    Went about changing her very quickly as I already knew the colours I wanted to use plus that is when the fun started.

Must be in the mood for using my old stash because above her head the stamped flourish is from the Visual Artistry Collection called French Market.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Great image Shirley and she looks wonderful against the darker background. It’s amazing how much forgotten stash and bits we have and it does make you feel good when you use them

    “Cheers” Shirley…to a great fun card! It doesn’t look like different things have ‘thrown’ at this as they all blend so effortlessly and beautifully together. A great design
