Tu-Tu CUTE!

I love that Rupa gave us a long dress to work with in "Retro Boutique"! With a black pen and some scissors, you easily can alter it a million different ways, here I made a quick little tutu for a birthday ballerina across the street. :)

Stamp your dress and free hand in a little scalloped or straight edge with your pen. Color, cut and paste, that's it!
I used my Koh i Noor and Odorless Mineral Spirits to color, Stardust pen for accents and the hanger, and Prismacolor Warm Gray 20% marker to shadow.) I finished the card with the swiss Dotted CB folder, SU! pink tafetta and white brads I got at Hobby Lobby. The greeting is from the same set.

I have another fun cut with this image coming soon, it has been sitting on my desk for TWO weeks, I just can't decide on the right sketch for the card LOL!! A 3D project coming soon, too, with Asela's set, and Jessie's guest spot tomorrow!!

Back to stamping now for the next release, TTYL!!!!! (I finished 5 more cards!!)
(BTW, wouldn't that look pretty, too, to have used the whole dress above before I cut it(if I'd stamped the whole thing, that is!), with that little pink top layer?? :)

(haha, I just said "pretty, too, to"! get it, tutu?! I crack myself up!) ;)

Great idea! I didn't even think about making a little tutu. It will be a perfect idea for my daughter's ballet photos.

Very cute. I love to shadow with my Prismacolor markers, too, except I use Stone Cold for my shadowing. I will have to see if I have the one you use and see what the difference is. Thanks for sharing.
