Fabulous Party Dress...

Hi there!

It's time for another Dynamic Duos colour challenge and this week features two of my favourite colours together...

I recently got my hands on the Dress Up framelits and have been wanting to make a dress using fabric, so that's where I started...

I was pretty happy with how it turned out in the end! I basically folded a torn strip of fabric (from More Amore) over so there was a bit of a gap (where you can see the back of the fabric at the bottom) then stitched some linen thread along the top and pulled it together so it ruffled, then tied it at the back, layering some lace over the top for the waistband. The bodice is Pool Party card with a few pearls attached. I used some First Edition dsp and Cherry Cobbler patterns dsp for some of the panels, and for the background I stamped some doilies onto Pool Party card and sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I thought this sentiment from Create a Cupcake was perfect for the dress!

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout (I flipped the sketch and yes, covered quite a bit of it with the big poofy dress!).

Make sure you check out the fabulous creations of the rest of the design team!

Thanks for stopping by...
