And now to explain my creative process: The project was inspired by a Graphic 45 8x8 paper pad called "Couture" and by this mini purse I picked up for $1 at a local thrift store.
I fussy cut all the ladies, the tickets and sentiments from the G45 paper with my Cutter Bee scissors and darkened the edges with a black Pitt pen. The two fans were cut from the G45 paper with a Die-namics rosette die. Behind the three ladies on the right is a blue scalloped oval cut from the G45 paper pack with a Spellbinders die. Before the paper was released from the die, I darkened the edges on the inner rim of the die with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using an Inkssentials Foam Replacement Pad. The black satin bow with rhinestone button is a repurposed shoe bow. The Eiffel Tower is a repurposed earring. Molly, fashionista on the left, is wearing gold rhinestone earrings. The other three embellishments are by Recollections.
