Red Dress

Hi All

What a change in the weather,although its still bright and sunny, its decidedly chilly here,  so no garden this afternoon - just a bit of organising in the craft room and sorting out some cards to take with me on Monday when I'm off to spend a few days with DD. 

I made this card a couple of weeks ago and I don't know how many times I have tried to take photos, the red just doesn't look right!  today's looks a bit better.  I have used Kanban Jasper Steampunk stamps, for the dress and coloured with Promarkers and red glitter.  I have stitched gold thread on the back of the dress, and gold embossed the cogs.  Crafty Individual Swirl, was stamped in Fired Brick DI, which as also used on the TH words and butterflies, which are coated with Glossy Accents, and a flower made from inked  book pages. Have had the paper for ages, its all gold and sparkly and looks lovely when the light catches it.

  I am entering this card in:

  Craft  Room Challenge - Sparkle Glitter/Shine
  Rainbow Lady's -  Butterflies
  Divas by Design - Use a Stamp
  Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

That's it for now, thanks for looking.  Hope you all have a good weekend.
