With a Little Flourish - 7th Chunky Book Page

Here ' 7th page!
Only just this minute finished but could not wait to take a photo and share with you.
The inspiration sort of seeped into being.......nothing was shouting at me as usual and then I saw......OMG!! The dress forms...Lost Coast...(Karen at Scrapz once again sent them asap :))
...then I was browsing this you do.....and saw some of the new Graphic 45 paper at Art from the Heart and loved the image of the dressform on the papers and knew I wanted to re-create that idea...I just love those Steampunk Debutante Collection papers but honestly I don't know when I would ever be likely to use them so much paper already!!! Ooooh! I'm very tempted by these though LOL :)

Anyways I started by swooshing DI's for the came out much brighter than I thought it would but liked it non the less LOL......aged mahogany/faded jeans/wild honey then stamped the T!m flourish in walnut stain
....stamped the T!m chandelier and embossed with disco black
...stamped the dress form onto different designer papers (all K and Co) and layered them up....using a piece of grungeboard as the base
.......I'd love a dress like this.......reminds me of that gorgeous red dress that Bette Davis wears in the film Jezebel only my dress isn't red.....but you get my drift?
...there are two different images of dress forms and I used the base stand from the other to attach to this one and embossed with distress brushed corduroy
...stamped the dragonfly wings (a freebie stamp) on acetate and glittered up on the reverse
...once again I used the die cut already in my T!m flourish die to trace around and cut out then inked with tea dye and hand wrote some of the words from "I could have danced all night"
.....still waiting ever so ever so patiently to get that Vagabond and then I can use the dies I've already bought!!! HOL
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
