White Wedding

When I saw this dress image in Rupa's set I knew it was time to try this diamond score pattern I'd seen on Debbie's blog using my Scor-Pal! The white on white and silver sparkly accents add to the drama and elegance! Although not "retro", it certainly makes me think of a "chic" Boutique!

To make the skirt two-tiered, perfect for a bridal shower or wedding, mask the dress and then stamp it again as low or high as you like for a custom hem. Stardust Stickles accents the sash, straps and scallops, and shadows were done with a warm gray 20% Prismacolor marker. I cut the whole thing out, mounted it on dimensionals on top of my Scallop Oval Nestabilitie (also on dimensionals), and "hung" one of the mega rhinstone brads (pierce a whole through the nestie die cut, insert your brad, and then just slide the top of the hanger underneath). I used a large oval punch for the "celebrate" tag and "embossed" it by tracing the small oval punch win it with my stylus. I poked another brad though and then wrapped it around the side of the card, securing each end with dimensnionals.

Love the dress. How creative you are! At first I thought you stamped the dress twice, cut them out and THEN layered them on the card.

What a lovely dress. I thought you layered it too (not masked). Terrific idea! I think the scored diamond pattern in the bg is perfect as well. :D TFS with us. Kel
