We have a really cool theme for our current TIME OUT challenge which is to be inspired by something in your wardrobe - past or present!! There is also the Optional Twist to add some dry or heat embossing. I had so much fun going thru my very small wardrobe and found the perfect thing to inspire me.
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Poppystamps and they are giving a $20 gift voucher to a random winner chosen from those who do the 'Optional Twist'.
The item of clothing I chose is a dress from Ripcurl that I purchased on my Australian holiday in November last year. Phoebe and I LOVED shopping in their stores, its all beachwear and surfing, and we could have bought the whole womenswear section (well, except for the bikini's.....). This is one of the favourite things I bought on holiday:
Now I've got it under the dress photo I can totally see how similar they are (Phoebe couldn't believe it when I showed her.....).
I started by stamping the images from the Uniquely Creative 'Tropicana' stamp set over the card front using Gina K Amalgam Black ink. I wore the dress while I coloured it with Altenew Artist Markers, looking at it often to see how different things were highlighted. Once I was finished I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Poppystamps 'Flower Garden' stamp set on black CS and die-cut it out with a circle die from Couture Creations. This was put on some foam tape, along with Neat and Tangled sequins.
