"French, Feminine and Frilly"
The background is sponged with Spun Sugar distress ink, stamped in black archival ink and heat-embossed with holographic powder to give an all-over pearly look before covering completely with a sheet of lace, securing behind, and matting onto black card to hide the edges. The lace is white, but it reflects the colour of the background.
More lace is coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink and wrapped around the card. A big, floppy bow is also tied with lace.
The dress form and sentiments are stamped in black archival ink and heat-embossed with holographic powder before cutting out with the matching dies.
"Ooh La La!"
The dies have also been used as stencils for sponged ink and a black promarker fineliner pen used through the stencil to edge the details. A spun sugar distress marker is used to highlight aspects of the stamped designs.
"Bonjour mon ami"
The diecuts have each been cut out twice in white and black card. In each case, the white diecut is sponged with distress ink, then adhered slightly off to one side of the black diecut to give a shadow effect.
