Shopping Our Stash # 257.....Dresses.....

Hello everyone: It's time for another fun challenge at Shopping Our Stash, this week our theme is DRESSES, so go and find images with pretty dresses and or dress forms, and join us in the gallery, we can't wait to see what you create, here is my card.


This is an image from the Unity Stamp Co. Kit of the month called HEY GIRL, from May of 2014, it has lots of really awesome images and sentiments.
I stamped this one onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter but, the pink polka dot dress was stamped onto a piece of Lili of the Valley pattern paper and snipped out, I wanted this fore front dress to really stand out, I added some shadows to it with my Prismacolor pencils.
I sponged each of the corners with distress inks in the same colors as the dresses and I did the same with the sentiment, which is from Stampabilities, 2003.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is stamped with SU Melon Mambo.  I hope you give our challenge a try and, if you want awesome inspiration, stop by the rest of the Design Team's blogs to see the fabulous cards they've created, we would love to see your card in the gallery.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Thank you Cindy, I was going to also color the pink dress but decided to stamp it on the pattern paper and cut it, looks better this way.

Thank you Mimi, and I know what you mean, when I was a little girl I loved to play with paper dolls and color their dresses.
