A Touch Of Glamour

A touch of glamour this week for my DT piece for Creative Expressions using the Gala Event stamp plate.
I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty to showcase the fabulous gown. I added a little colour to my die cut shape using Distress Ink dusty concord, adding a little faux stitching to the outside edge using black soot Distress Marker.
I stamped the dress onto two shades of purple card, adding a little dimension to the bottom of the dress, adding two layers. I also included to dimensional roses, cut using the Tattered Pinecone die. I added a mini coat hanger for a little more interest.
No glamorous outfit would be complete without a hat, which I embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals, adding a little silver Paint Dabber to the raised areas. I also included a few black gems, added to the hat and dress to give that extra touch of glamour.
I stamped "Simply Fabulous" onto white card, sponging with a little dusty concord ink.  For further interest I added faux stitching to the outside edge of my card using dusty concord Distress Marker. A double bow and black bead pins add that extra touch of dimension and glamour.

Thanks for stopping by. Tracy x x
