As soon as I saw the lace element in the dress, I reached for an oldie but goodie Hero Arts stamp, Lace Frame. I stamped and black embossed it on the purple cardstock. For the center portion of the stamped image, I used a Spellbinder die to cut it out, so I could stamp the sentiment. Another Hero Arts stamp, Special Time, was embossed in gold. I love this font - it looks lovely with the lace. I mounted that whole piece onto black cardstock.
I knew the background had to be lattice, so I took the Hero Arts Lattice Background and stamped it in black on the same cardstock, cut it into four equals portions, and mounted it on a black card base.
For the final touch, as in the dress, I used gold and teal sequins to bring out those color elements.
I will definitely use the die cut technique with the lace stamp again. It really matches the frame perfectly.
Thanks RIC for another fun challenge!
As always, I love reading your comments!
