Tuesday Trigger: Finesse the Dress

Hi there-

I got some crafty time last night and was able to create a little card for this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. Here is the inspiration photo:

 Here is my take on the trigger.

I was inspired by the colors of the dress and the embroidered image on the dress and tried to translate that to paper. On teal cardstock, I stamped a damask image with Versamark and then heat embossed with this really cool embossing powder from Stampendous called Marcasite- like the gemstone.  It's charcoal gray with flicks of other colors throughout the powder. I added a gemstone to the center of the damask for kicks.  I punched the bottom of the teal cardstock with a scallop punch to mimic the hem detail in the dress and attached the teal to a dark gray card base. The sentiment was stamped on light gray cardstock that I die cut with the double ended banner die.

Here's a close up of the embossed damask.

Hope you like my take on the trigger.  Thanks for stopping by!
