I cut a paper towel to 4x51/4" then dragged curry, then marina mist, then navy onto the paper towel. I cut out an oval for the image then a larger oval from the paper towel. I turned the oval the opposite of the frame. I stamped and colored the image. I used the daisy punch for the flower. I cut the petals and placed them closely to each other to form her dress.
Not sure what I want for a sentiment. This was fun, I've never done a background like this.

Oh I love this. That BG and using a paper towel is yummy. I recently used this stamp and so wanted to cut out a dress for the image but ran out of time. I love the colour and the petal dress....awesome I've added it to my favourites. TFS Happy day

What a neat effect with the oval reversed and put back in. I'm glad you had fun with this. Beautiful You's custom skirt looks super too. I'm getting a Spanish flamenco feel from this, although I know their skirts are more tiered.

Wow! This is a fantastic piece of art showcasing the paper towel technique. I love how your coloring of the towel in different colors, creating an oval with the design upside down, and adding petals for the lady's skirt! Very creative, Sue!! Love it!
This caught my eye while I was doing some commenting on a close alpha sister whom is the featured stamper for this week and this gorgeous card appeared I just had to stop in to say gorgeousness!!! Then again more so because you had be at yellow!! And this stamp is amazing. Adding this to my high ho gallery to possible try the technique which is new to me and you did such a fabulous job on it.
