GOLDEN OLDIE! combined with RIC#28


One of my favorite challenges is the Runway Inspired Challenge. For this challenge they picked this gorgeous dress by Carolina Herrera. What a dream of a dress! And what better stamps to use than one of my favorite little stamp sets from Hero Arts called box of dots. It came out in 2003 - long before I started stamping - I probably snatched it up on one of those stamp sales.....
This way I can also link up this card with the A blog named Hero GOLDEN OLDIE! challenge - how sweet!



Current Challenge

I stamped the dots randomly onto white card stock. Then I repeated the same on vellum and superimposed the two papers and attached them with vellum glue. The sentiment (Inkadinkadoo - Garden Flower) is stamped onto the paper, to give it a softer look. A thin silver thread on top - finito!





Before I go  tonight I wanted to thank everybody for all  the sweet comments that were left on my blog. I hope you enjoy this entry as well - good night!

Das mit dem Pergamentpapier ist eine tolle Idee und widerspiegelt genau den durchsichtigen Stoff des Kleides! Sehr clever gemacht!!
Sieht aus als ob dein Finger sich schon erholt hätte! :-)
