Sunday, 9 June 2013


Well, it's actually sunday but it WAS movie night last night! We watched "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (new version) for the third time. I love it, could watch it over and over and never tire of it. Highly recommended, as are the books!
Anyway, back to business. Today's card is for the current Saturated Canary Blog challenge "Show us your LOVELY". And here is my "Lovely", such a beautiful stamp. This was a first in two ways for first "proper" red dress, with folds, and the first time I've cut around a stamp; typically for me, I chose a tricksy one! But I quite like how she turned out. I found the backing paper online (for your information- don't EVER google "Girls on film"; you'll get much more than the Duran Duran song!!), and the die cut film strip is from my stash. I've finished it off with a few flowers and stamens, and added a touch of Glossy Accents to her lips and the rose.
I love my Lovely!
Hope you like her too.

This surpasses a lot of cards I see and definitely ones I make! I would love that dress if anyone can make it in a tent size and make it look good on me haha. An excellently stunning beautiful creation, I'm head over heels for it.
