Dance Recital

Well, I made the first cut of 20 for the SCS Clean and Simple Fall DT!  I have to tell you, though...this is one talented group of 20 ladies and the competition is tough.   Our challenge theme is Teacher's Pet and this 2nd challenge sub-title is "Fashion Statement".  We were to use a "tiny bit" of designer paper on our cards.
 
Here's my entry:
 
I remembered that dance lessons for our DGD begin when school starts so I grabbed this gorgeous stamp from Impression Obsession I bought a few years ago.  My DH was the final decision maker on color.  I gave him a choice of pink, rose or black.
 
I stamped it in black Versafine, then again in Versamark.  I  heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.   I have two favorite parts.  The gorgeous black silk May Arts ribbon and the overskirt I created from a bit of tulle I picked up in the $1 spot at JoAnn's awhile back.  I used a T1 Copic marker to accent the skirt under the tulle.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
 
Pin It!

This is a total WOW! card, Charlene! I LOVE the black and white. And the little paper pieced part of the tutu fits the challenge perfectly.
