First I applied clear VersaMark watermark through the stencil and heat embossed in two colors: the gorgeous Fran-tàge Aged Black (jet black with gold flecks) & Fran-tàge Shabby Blue (baby blue with gold flecks)! The Shabby Blue was hard to see, so I outlined them with an extra fine point black Sharpie.
The design then fell into place. The black laced corset piece is from a shirt that Brianne had. I 'shabbied' it by pulling & ripping the bottom lace. I followed the great advice she had to tone down the starkness of the rich black. I added Finnabair Gold Rush Glass Glitter!
I used lots of Dusty Attic chippies. The butterflies are among my most fave! I heat embossed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Candy Cane Red Gold and decorated the body & wings with some gold glitter glue. Here is the large butterfly next to the beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts roses. I rubbed gold wax on the red roses.
The mini dress form was left untouched in its natural state.
The silver metal pieces come from an old Fossil brand belt of mine.
Punching part of the layout edge; adding tiny rhinestones in black and baby blue colors; a light blue & gold Prima flower; and a large jet black diamond cut brad finished my creation. I'm very pleased.......but who wouldn't be with such a gorgeous subject? : )
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you like my layout!
Have a great week, Lisa : )
