DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY :: NEW RELEASES :: MY FIRST PARTY DRESS

I am back again to show you one of the new releases in the DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY store today.  This image is called "My First Party Dress" and it is one of my own drawings as a digistamp for the store.  I printed the image onto white CS, and cut it out using a die.


The main part of the dress is floral DP paper pieced and shaded using Copics.  The bow and frills on the dress have been coloured with with Copics, and a white gel pen for the highlights.

Here is a better view of the image :

To make my card I used the recipe from the CDAC Easy as 1-2-3 Challenge where the following recipe needs to be followed:
1 flower
2 DP's
3 pieces of bling

I created a tag with a Happy Birthday sentiment for a 1 year old so that I can enter my card into The Outlawz Friday Challenge where a card for a milestone birthday is called for.

 I used the following items to make up my card:

pink CS card base
gingham check DP background punched along the bottom using a MS punch
little sequins and beads sewn on around the diecut
"Card Candi" legless brad in the top right hand corner
pink satin ribbon bow

I would like to add this card to the following challenges too:

AUD SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE BLOG, BINGO (diecut/”happy”/flowers)
CAN YOU DIGI IT, FRESH FRIDAY, my inspiration was all the shades of pink
