The Dress

So it's the 3rd challenge of their DT call over at weScrap and this week it's called The Dress. I just love how they named the challenges. I am also very happy to share that I won the 2nd Challenge which was called The Makeover and I get a prize too! :)

So for this week, we had to choose 2 dresses from the different runway models and use those as inspiration. The dresses that I chose were the top 2 from this photo.

And this is the finished LO. I used different papers here and I actually had a hard time looking for papers that would fit the color scheme. I used the dress color on the first photo (top left) as the foreground and cut out the papers and used different border punches to mimic the wave-like desing of the dress. And I used the diagonal flower design on the dress as the main design on the LO hence I used 2 chipboards which I placed diagonally.

Here is the close up of the different cuts and border punches used.

Here's a close look on the chipboard which I painted using MM glaze to also mimic the satin like feel of the dress and splattered it with purple paint to mirror the vines on the dress too.

More close up...

Materials used:
PP: MME Quite Contrary, K&Co, DVWC, Sassafrass
Alpha: MME, Scrapworks
Embellies: Inque board, MME journal die cuts
Tools: Martha Butterfly punch, Martha border punch, Fiskars Embossing border punch, Stickles, MM paints (glaze, purple).
I had super fun with this challenge! I initially don't know where to start because it was hard to find the right papers but when I found them the ideas just started flowing. I actually didn't know I'd finish it tonight.

Happy day for me! :)



  1. You did great! Your creation works well with the arrangement of colors and design.

  2. WOW I love what you did with the chipboard. Very artistic and creative!
