Two's Company!

Friday, July 23, 2010

This week at Sharon's Stamp Simply blog the theme is 'Two's Company'. The challenge is to use two of something, two different patterned papers, two different stamps, two brads, two flowers, two bows.... you get the idea! No third just two, so I went with two colors, Black and off White and two stamps. The pretty digital dress stamp and sentiment are from 'Sew Fabulous' by Nina Brackett at Squigglefly. I also made this with the Moxie Fab World Card Style Week Classy & Elegant Challenge in mind.

The stunning patterned digi papers are from Fabrications Classic Paper Pack by Quirky Twerp from the Digichick. I used two different patterned papers to paper-piece the dress, I heat embossed the bodice by painting it with some Onyx Creative Inspirations Paint, sprinkled with black embossing powder and heated. I also made a matching envelope to go with the card.

The template for it (Rectangular Envelopes Set 1 from The Cutting Files) is from the Digichick. I distressed the edges by sponging with the same Onyx paint I used before. I embellished it with some diamontés and a black button.

The big bow I made from beautiful black silk ribbon from The Stamp Simply Store. I attached the sentiment tag with some of the narrow black silk ribbon also from The Stamp Simply Store. I added a little shimmer border on the tag with some Creative Inspirations Paint in Winter Frost.

I used the same Winter Frost to paint the background the dress is on. I stitched a little border on the sewing machine and I sponged the edges of the card with Onyx the same as the envelope. I like how this turned out!!
