Day Two Dress Up




Creating cards has improved my wardrobe.

Yes, you heard me right.

;)

I used to buy clothes that were "art" and walk around in them.

yikes.

Um, I'm not cute enough to pull off every design~ HA!


Now, if I really like something (usually a top) but know it would look HORRID on me...


I construct a card based on it.


Papertrey is hosting a challenge (Day 2) which is to create a card inspired by a piece of clothing.


Here is my card~



(stamps: Papertrey Ink Winter Woods/The Sweet Life  die: My Favorite Things Cross-Stitch Oval STAX)


I misted water on each colorful image before stamping it on paper, to get that "mottled look" of my top which inspired me~


Yes, I said "my".


Maybe this wasn't a good example...hahahaha...


No matter~


it's pretty colorful, yes, but I love the cut soooo,


it's kay. ;)




 Ooooh, so fun, I bet you have awesome outfits.


Esp if you don't wear them...design a card that gets to show off.


I've shared this before...but here is a pic my daughter drew for me years ago...it cracks me up!!



 That's my card strutting down the runway~with me peeking through the curtains all proudlike.


My creative kids man~I love the way they think. ;)

 Thanks for stopping in~
