I must have been a magpie in a previous life as I am attracted to and tend to hoard shiny objects. When I saw this challenge on Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge website, I knew it was an opportunity to use some of my glitzy stash.
The project started with a $2 frame from Michaels and some paper from the Graphic 45 Couture paper pad. Two of the fashion themed stamps were cut out and popped up on dimensional tape. The fan is a re-purposed earring that has been in my stash for over 20 years. To keep with the glitzy theme, I added lots of rhinestone flourishes and some red gems. The flowers on the gown were punched from red vellum and sculpted on a foam pad with a stylus. I used Platinum Stickles to embellish her head band and necklace. A pair of red gemstones were added for earrings and a clear gem was added to the headpiece. Her bracelet was formed from fingernail decals.
Again adding to the sparkly theme, I die-cut the leaves with a Sizzix die from some glittery DCWV paper. The roses were punched from a Stampin Up blossom punch from red vellum. I added several rhinestones to resemble dew drops.
A row of lace and red velvet ribbon were added to the bottom edge of the frame opening and a strip of red and silver sequined mesh was added just below the ribbon. Red gemstones were added to the lace.
