Thank you to everyone who played along with us for DYSU Challenge #3 Pink.. wow what fun we had going to each and every blog and drooling over the amazing pink details you added to your creations. I can't believe we have 189 entries.. you all ROCK!!
So get on your patterned PJ's and join in on the fun!! Create something using as many or as little patterned paper, ribbon, brads, fabric, etc.. as you want!!
We have 2 great sponsors for this weeks challenge....
Stitchy Bear -$10 Gift Certificate to their store HERE.
and Black Leaf Design located HERE who is giving the lucky winner the Sweet Cupcake Digi Stamp Set.
I use tons of patterned papers - so I had to think of something new for this theme. This is an old applique technique to build up layers of fabric.
Print out 2 copies of the digi and cut the whole skirt from one of them. Use that as a template to cut the base layer - and then add the upper layers to make the folds. It is a fiddle - but it's great fun. I have put a tutorial on my site for you
The wings are different too - all I did was to trace over the digi lines with a gold metalic marker. It left is beautifly light and simple to go with all the patterns. A gold gem and a gold line of liquid pearls are on the outer edges.
