a friend just told me that I fall on "the lighter side of dark". After thinking it over, I think that could be just about the sweetest thing anyone has ever said about me.
This weeks challenge on Haunted Design House was titled "Bridal Couture from the Darkside". I am the sponsor again this week, so my entry doesn't qualify but I wanted to play along anyway. I mean really... where's the fun in sitting it out... geeze louiseeee
I wanted it to look like the back of a wedding dress. Low back with pearl buttons and a bustle just where a good tramp stamp would sit...
After running the paper through a Cuttlebug embossing folder (sidebar.. can't wait to get see t!m's new embossing folders from Sizzix... love that man's products!) I spritzed it with water and perfect pearls. I spritzed the white layer also. This really gives it a beautiful shimmer.
I made the bustle with several different ribbons and a black satin ribbon rose for the very center. Applied some of my old hair bow techniques to layer the bows. I still have some hair bows if anyone is interest in purchasing one... or 20!
Although it is not my all time favorite card I have ever or "ever to" make, I think it turned out pretty good. And definitely on the lighter side of dark...LOL
till next time, ENJOY! the Oz
