BBTB2 CHALLENGE FOREVER YOUNG DRESS FORM 'HAUTE COUTURE'
It seem like an age since I posted! Things are mega busy around here at the moment Connor has started his GCSE's so we are busy revising such a stressful time for him I remember it well I hated exams too! I will be glad when he has his last exam on 17th June when we can all relax and I can get back to more crafting too!
Anyway, over at BBTB2 this week we are using Forever Young Cart and the Dressform cut. I love this cart it's so full of fabulous girly cuts!
For my project this week I decided to go with an 'Haute Couture' look to my card. I hope you think I have succeeded!
My card is simple in cream and black with a bit of bling and measures approx 6"x7". Papers are from DCWV All dressed up stack for the stripey 'wallpaper' background. I cut the dressform in black shadow feature and cream base at 5" then base shadow in black for the dress. I cut the top offf of the dress to give a strapless look and embossed with part of the CB folder Flourish Frame. I added some net to the bottom and finished with some silver gems. The chandelier is from Home Decor and the screen is actually tags from Tags bags and More cart which I stretched in Design studio! I welded 2 long rectangles to the side of the screnn which have been scored and folded to the back in order that the screen is lifted in the middle from the card. papers for the screen are from Pink Petticoat Lola's Boudoir collection printed on to cream card. It's hard to see but I added a piece of eyelash fibre hanging over the screen in an attempt to replicate a feathe boa to complete the outfit. Lastly a computer generated sentiment on cream matted on to black and pop dotted.
Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the fabulous projects my DT sisters have created this week and we would love you to join in and see your wondeful creations too!
Have a great week !
