Hope

I have been playing with ATC's again... I pulled out my scrap pile that I organized earlier this week and pulled out all my stamped pieces that haven't been used on projects, backgrounds, and die cuts.

This project started as an ATC but those wings just wouldn't fit! I decided to continue on and put together a card.  The card is for the Simon Says Stamp and Show your Favorite Word as it speaks to Hope.  I also am playing in the Frilly & Funky challenge which is to re-cycle/re-purpose.  I re-cycled the doily and dress from from my scrap pile of old projects.  The dress form is cut out from a food box. (The technique was from the 12 Tags at Christmas with Mr. Holtz)

Here is my project:
The doily is from Hero Arts. The dress form is Sizzix Die Cut.  I painted it with crackle paint and then added a layer of glimmer mist and a coat of clear embossing powder to make the color pop. 

The sentiment is from Artistic Outpost - Quotes & Quotables plate.  The wings are embossed using Stampendous Silver embossing powder and are from Chocolate Baroque - Punky Romance. 
The paper is from the latest BoBunny Country Garden.

The flowers are new Prima Flowers.  The ribbon is glimmer misted using Tuscan Sun.  The touch of orange is Ranger Distress Inks - Rusty Hinge.

Have a lovely Thursday!

  1. Suzz...this card is simply amazing. I love the monotone golden tones. I also really like the honeycomb stamp that you've done on the left and balanced it with that amazing quote on the right. Your winged dress form is beautiful! Beautiful job! Thanks for sharing your always inspiring art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  19. Oh Wow, I'm so glad you decided to make this into a card Sue. Someone is going to be mighty pleased to receive that beauty. Yellow is a colour I rarely (if ever) use and I don't know why because I love it. This makes me think of sitting in warm sunshine reading a good book.
