I embossed the gown image from Everything Nice in gold on crumb cake cardstock, then cut with the coordinating Gown Die. I colored in the stripes for a ghostly effect with a white stabilo pencil and added a bit of grunge around the edges with a black pencil.
The background started with some Tim Holtz designer paper, then I used a web layering stencil over it with black soot and dry brushed inka gold randomly over the whole thing, adding a bit of tissue tape and some more black ink for a little texture. The sentiment is embossed in gold onto a frame image I fussy cut from a My Mind's Eye paper pad. I brushed a little inkagold on it and cut a rose from some black lace for the corner (also brushed with inkagold).
I used the same lace trim below my floating dressform, adding a bit of cheesecloth behind the frame. I thought it was finished at this point and took photos, but then decided the dress got lost a bit in the background, so added half a gold spider web doily behind the dress to make it pop a bit more. Still not sure which way I like best. LOL Either way, lots of distressing on the edges and a few teeny rhinestones at the waistline finish things off.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a fabulous, everything goes the way you hoped kind of day!
