This was for an "anything goes" swap I'm in and it involved heavy use of the Stamp A Ma Jig and a LOT of masking ... but I had a lot of fun doing it. One hint would be to make several masks of the same thing. When I was stamping the slip onto the mask, of course I was using Stazon and after awhile it started to bleed through the sticky note mask. (Same thing with the flowers from the shorts onto the bikini top.) And it's probably hard to tell in the picture but I used the stylus tool to outline the bikini top from the front and then flipped it over and used the fat ball end of the stylus to pooch out the bodice area.
