Live * Love * Laugh

here is a “dress” card I made for the Wednesday Stamper challenge…my fantasy angel was created with curtains from an advertisement, and the bodice is a ceramic container

it is interesting to take different shapes and turn them into dresses (all thanks to Gail Russakov) there are so many possibilities

I placed my angel behind a decorated 7 Gypsies vellum piece and stamped the bee on top

have you ever worked on something with lots of detail and for longer than you probably should have…..only to find it’s not exactly what you were going for in the end?  AND it scanned crooked 🙂  oh well I am calling it done….you can tell which stamp is my favorite!

  3. Great angel dressing, Patty. I’ve never thought of using something unusual to create clothes for my images. What a novel idea! I’ll have to loosen up and try that. Your angel art is beautiful. and I do love your live love laugh stamp, too.

  13. I am definitely going to have to try this technique. It’s wonderfully unique. I have so many magazine images and am always looking for different ways to cut them up and use them. Even though I’m not much of a stamper, thanks so much for the inspiration.
