You are incredible.

Thought it was time to leave the vellum alone for a few days but still enjoying the zigs so decided to use this wonderful stamp from The Ton again. This time white embossed then I coloured hair and body lightly with copics and then out came the Zigs. This is a very special gown for a very special occasion.

I used the Canson watercolour paper which I find best for use with zigs. Then I drew a line of each colour down from the waist line then added water and pulled the colour out. I let it dry well before I moved onto the next colour. Made the bodice red and finished the dress off by using my clear Wink of Stella and as this photo shows lots of sparkle. Had to watch I didnt mix colours as the Wink of Stella reactivates the Zigs.

Still felt she needed something else so checked out the diamond necklace and hair pin for the night and finished her off with an 'incredible' silver mirror card sentiment.


Challenges:
white embossed




I think its CAS enough. If not let me know


Thanks everyone for coming to look and I hope you come again soon.
