Welcome to another week of The Color Dare challenge and wow do we ever have a dare for you! This week Riley has chosen the color combination of Tempting Turquoise, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Not Quite Navy...wow, right?! I can honestly say that I never would have thought up this combo on my own but you know what? I like it! Here's where I went with it:
Now you can see why this post is titled Paper Dolls, right? This is a single stamp that was stamped in NQN on Very Vanilla for the background. Using the matching color ink, the ladies were stamped again on Poppy Parade and Tempting Turquoise designer patterned paper. I cut out just their dresses and SNAIL'ed their fabulous frocks in place. Of course, no lady of this era is complete without her pearls, dah-ling!
The large scallop trim was created by running NQN cardstock through my Big Shot with the new Tasteful Trims die. I distressed it with a bone folder and some crumpling to separate the layers of paper. Stitched in place onto some Poppy Parade DSP, the edges roll up like the ruffle of a dress!
With the dressmaker's pattern in the background, the sweet Puns from the Past sentiment was sew perfect (sorry, couldn't resist!) and I carried the theme over to the inside with the coordinating sewing machine image and a little more trimming and stitching.
So, come on over to The Color Dare and join us! We would love to see what you make of these colors. If you don't have these exact colors, something close will do--just get crafty!
