Love that Dress
Posted on May 14 2018
Hello everyone! My name is Jeannie and I’m super excited that today is my first design team post for LDRS Creative.
For today’s card, I wanted to do a really simple card to focus on the main girl image from Love That Dress. She’s so glamorous and I literally do love that dress! I stamped her out using Raven ink, which works with both alcohol markers and watercolors. I colored her dress using pink so it would pop. For the background, I used watercolors to quickly color up a slight blue ombre and a black strip along the bottom to depict the ground.
Originally, I didn’t plan on doing anything more than adhering the girl directly on that background but after looking at it, it seemed incredibly plain.
To fix this, I pulled out the Lamp Post and Railings dies to help create a silhouette background for this card. Unintentionally, the black ground worked perfectly to tie this together. I die cut the lamp post and two railings from black cardstock. The best part of this die is that you can use it to build a continuous railing. You can't even tell it's two die cuts! I adhered these to the background and then I added the main girl to the front panel.
I added some gold metallic splatter on the blue background for a little bit of interest.
I really like how this card turned out so I hope you enjoyed this card as well and I can’t wait to share more projects with you.
