TuTu Cute

Try Stampin' On Tuesday     Challenge#57-Sketch
Art With No Boundaries     Challenge 4: Fashionista--Some sewing creations

I saw this cute new design from Chris at CS Designs and knew it would be the digi I used for Challenge 4 at Art With No Boundaries. There's also a little sneak peek for maybe a future release of the cute sentiment, it will go with a  lot of Chris's designs. 
I have my sewing machine area piled up right now, so I had to get a little clever and pull out some glittery tulle, very thin cross stitch thread, and a sewing needle to create this over skirt for the ballerina costume. I cut the bottom edge with scallop scissors, but you can't really tell, tulle is very persnickety to work with. The pink glitter is Distress Stickles Worn Lipstick and the very tiny glitter dots are a pink Spica glitter pen. I love black, gray, white, and pink so this was my color choice which after I had attached the strips of designer paper I ran the whole front of the card through an embossing folder to create the embedded embossed look and hit the high points with Metallic Rub-On Sparkle White.
Of course, when I picked the digi and the colors I had to have a great sketch to put it all together, so I picked the one at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. I turned it horizontal and used the Spellbinders Labels 14 dies for the focal areas. 
Hope you add a little glitter to your lives every once in awhile, just for some fun.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
