Quite simply, I love paper and ink...and this week's 'Anything Goes' theme at Simon Says Stamp & Show opened a door to bring the two lovelies together and try out an idea that's been tugging at my mind for a while. There's always something rather endearing about a little girls dress and I wanted to try to 'capture' that feeling - but in paper.
Tim's Tissue Wrap would fit the bill but I'd never seen it in the flesh. I found a Youtube video of someone frantically waving the stuff around telling me it was "Absolutely Faaaaabulous" so I went for it, and literally rustled up a dress!
Vintage Photo Distress Ink which was quite a job but it gave that great aged effect and colour I wanted. I then randomly stamped the skirt with Papillon butterflies using Ranger Sepia Archival ink. Sometimes using the whole stamp and sometimes just sections for a varied effect.
Ornate Plate at the front which really is the perfect buckle! I glued the belt to the buckle and just let it fold and crease naturally.
Maybe a talented fashion student star could whizz up a full wedding dress or a whole new line...it is New York fashion week!
Espresso Alcohol ink. Strong handed Hubby helped me twist that twiddly bit! No flowers this time! I restrained myself, allowing the beauty and simplicity of the paper to do it's thing! I just wanted to make a paper dress... I really enjoyed seeing her come to life which helped me get through the ultra fiddily-diddily moments. I hope you can love her as much as I do!
