Material Girl



Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight the theme is Material Girl.  So anything feminine with the addition of lace, stitching, ribbon etc - real or faux.

I thought this would give me an opportunity to use one of my Tim Holtz Runway Girls.  I stamped her twice and fussy cut one, the other I only cut the dress to which I added some very old lace. I dyed this and a piece of lace trim with Milled Lavender.  The background stamping was done with ML DOX.

It would be lovely if you joined in the fun and if you need any inspiration, the Design Team have some very varied pieces to share here and you will also find all the challenge details.

Edited to add:  I meant to do this at the time - and link up to Allsorts Challenge blog where the theme is Soft  Pastels, so I hope this will still count.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx
