Papercraft Star and A New Member

Hi there! 
I hope you're having a good start to your week ...

Today sees a new photo inspiration challenge at Papercraft Star 
Here's the photo


So many interesting things in here ... I always love to see the different interpretations ... Will you choose the colours? maybe the dress form... the boots or the style
Here's my interpretation


The shabby brick background caught my eye and the chicken wire on the dress form ...
I stamped some chicken wire but I improvised with tulle on my dress form which I painted first to capture the green dress in the photo ... you maybe able to just pick out some crackle on there too


I picked out some colours by using this piece of Basic Grey paper and added some long forgotten rose rubons to the corners of my distressed paper then of course a little rose to the 'dress' 


The tiny necklace on the dress form is also a rubon
(you can tell from the photos that we had a fair bit of sunshine when I took them)
And I got to use one of the stamps I won at Flourishes ... 
"Glamour never goes out of style" 

I can't wait to see what you come up with ... Don't forget to visit the Blog to check out the rest of the creations from the DT ... Speaking of which ...
We have a new member on our team ... The lovely and talented Sue Lelli  (Card Therapy blog) Please pop over and leave her some love ... 

Have a beautiful day and keep safe
