Finally I have been able to join in again with CD Sunday. I had experienced some problems with my printer so had been unable to join in as printing was completely all over the place. But it seems to be fixed now - so here I am.
The challenge over at CD Sunday this week is "Victorian Beauties" - so I turned to My Craft Studio where I knew there was a section with Victorian ladies on. The CD is "Victorian Follies" & I chose a lady called Clara.
Here is my card;
My base card is a white card onto which I have layered some plain paper that is like a dark teal (it is one of the background papers on the CD), plus a second background paper which has on it the lacy pattern that is on the bodice of Clara's dress. I used a floral edge punch down the sides of the paper to give a more lacy effect. That was nearly a disaster as the punch got jammed going down the second side. But as luck would have it I managed to release it & was able to trim off the damaged piece & still had room to create the border. Clara's image came on a shaped tag & so I printed it twice & cut away all the background image from the second tag. Then I glittered the lace on her dress & fan & placed her over the other image on sticky pads. A ribbon in one of my ribbon boxes was just the right colour & some gems for extra bling. I have a box on my shelf that hold the ribbons cut from clothing which of course come in colours to match the clothes - by saving them you can get quite a collection of very useful colours.
Here is a close up of Clara to show her glittered dress;
I think you can see the glitter.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit. Why not pop over to CD Sunday using the link earlier in this post & see how others have interpreted this theme.
