F is For Fashion

Hello.  Welcome.  If you are looking for the blog hop go HERE.  Still a few hours left to comment.  There be prizes.  

The Craft Barn Alpha challenge is on F is week, and we have to include a heart.  I decided to go with fashion.  Over at Scrappelyst the challenge is triangle.  An underused shape I feel, so I decided to make my background using triangles. 



So here's my large altered playing card featuring a paper pieced Prima doll.  I gave her an patterned paper skirt and jazzed it up with some glitter glue.  

 
To make the background I covered the card with black handmade paper and then I cut white triangles from scrap card and stuck them on.  I added a couple of rhinestone hearts and the definition from the Oxford English Dictionary.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  10. I'm REALLY late and know it, but I simply had to visit, even though the next CB challenge has already been posted. This is gorgeous, and I love what you did with her skirt. The black and white background made her really POP, too.
