...at the Fashion Week. I recently picked up an old Italian law book, which I used with gesso and Fired Brick for my red carpet. To be honest, this dress is a whole lot more wearable than anything at the fashion week :D, it's much more like a couple of dresses in my wardrobe! Centre Step card made using the tutorial from black card. I used IO's Leopard print stamp for my background paper, stamping with black and sponging with Scattered Straw and some Tea Dye. For the side columns I embossed it with Herringbone ef and sponged with black. For the centre panel I used a Fiskars corner punch and outlined it with a gold pen.
RubberNecker Belle stamped on thin watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks - Festive Berries, Soot Black, Tattered Rose. Darn, I forgot to colour her bracelets - they'll be gold before it goes in the post. She's cut out, and mostly popped up on foam but her feet are firmly on the ground. MFT buttons tied with twine.

Very chic and a wonderful style! I love this card, Sabrina!! This classic image is one that I'll never tire of, she can be dressed with many different dp's, I love it here in polka dots! I love your animal print bg. with and without the herringbone embossing! Beautiful!

Beautiful center step or (center stage) card, Sabrina! I agree that this chic dress is definitely way more appropriate than what is being worn these days.....I love it, so Lucille Ball like, and your bg papers look smashing! Love the corner punches and buttons too~
