I had a major fail with Kia's lovely CAS challenge, to use something "falling". The only thing I was able to salvage was this green feather! Needless to say with the northern lights background and very busy ballgown, this is NOT going in the CAS challenge LOL.
My new favourite stamp is this beautiful ballerina image by Gabrielle Pollacco. I hope you aren't tired of her yet. Depending on how you colour and the stroke lengths, this stamp is really versatile considering its simplicity.
I started with a piece of cardstock approx 6"x 8", placing the stamp in the middle. I then did long swishes with Distress crayons & Gelatos and blend in a downward direction with my finger then very, very gently use a baby wipe following the exact direction of the crayon swishes.
Copics and Spectrum Noir markers are terrific over the top of caryons, they react very differently over the waxy surface. The dark green swishes at her waist line were done with navy blue alcohol markers. They come out looking a fabulous dark green.

I have to agree this is just stunning. You have managed to get so much movement into that wonderful ball gown. I believe she is taking a breather between dances. More wonderful creations please Susie. Lovely rain here today - and I am not complaining.

Our dear Susie, how funny, I was thinking to myself that I never get tired of seeing this beautiful ballerina! I absolutely love this green and technique!!! I've got to give this a try (have NEVER done anything like this) technique, you described it so well that I shouldn't have any trouble. Well other than it won't look anything like this! ;) I know you used the Northern Lights technique, but I get the impression that she is looking out into her audience awaiting her cue.
I actually have a card unassembled on my work table with a teal feather, now I'll hold off for a while. ;)

Oh My, Oh My, Oh My, Oh My, Oh My!!!!! Such Luxurious Gorgeousness!!! That really IS a Fantastic stamp! Your gal is a Star among stars. Green has always been my favorite color and WOW have you done it up royally! You sure know how to sling those Gelatos and Distress crayons around, my dear. And that Spectacular Emerald Plume is an Amazing addition!
Ok, Now that I have picked myself up off the floor!!!!! This is soooo incredibly gorgeous. My first thought was, "my sister would LOVE this" She loves green. I am thinking I really must make her a green girl soon. Your sky is magical! I love that there is just a bit more light in the left of the sky. The flow of the dress is spectacular! Gorgeous card! Faved!
