This is such a fun, girly set! I stamped the dresses in black stazon on glossy paper and watercolored with reinkers and a fine detail brush.
I used Crystal Effects on the bodice and a few of the flowers and then sprinkled dazzling diamonds over it and set it aside to dry. What a sparkly effect that gives this dress - LOVE it!
French Script is stamped in Memories White ink - I love how it's not so 'gunky' (like SU's white craft ink can be at times!).
Using the inspiration of all you lucky ladies who own the cuttlebug embossing plates, I pulled out my fiskars embossing plates. I spritzed nqn paper on one side and used the tool that came with the embossing plates and rubbed away. It didn't show up the pattern as much as I would have liked, so I pulled out my metallic rub-ons (don't remember the manufactor of these) and buffed white pearl over the swirls. I was so happy how this turned out! I used the piece to make a 'faux' buckle and added a pearl brad I bought from Oriental Trading.
Thanks for taking a closer look!

Oh this is so sweet and *girlie*! I rarely use this set- but you have given me inspiration! (Of course you used my favorite thing- Crystal Effects!) Thank you for taking the time to add all the details to the instructions! TFS
