Beautiful You: part 1

Beautiful You is one set where the name speaks for itself, it is just beautiful. I was one of the lucky ones to win this set as prize patrol at #onstagelive2016. For those who are not familiar with prize patrol is, it is just another way of saying prize giveaways. It felt like I scored because this comes in a double box set, without a doubt the best one out of all the prize patrol.
Once I started to play with it, I just couldn't stop, I kept making more and more. The creative juices kept flowing on and on. So much so that I've had to break up the post in various parts to be able to showcase each design. So stay tuned for them all to be revealed one by one.
Here is the first design:

This image is my favourite from this set because doesn't really reveal much about the girl as she has her back to us. But I think that is what makes it more intriguing, she can be who ever you want her to be. Here I wanted her dress to pop out a little, so I stamped and punched out a petal from the bunch of blossoms, and used it as the lower half of the dress. I am quite happy with how it turned out, it actually looks like she has vintage dress on. On the right is another card that I made with the same image minus the petal dress, just to give you an idea of what a difference it makes.

To make the dress pop out a little, I used dimensional adhesive to lift it. To give it the look of a rainy and windy day, I stamped the brush stroke images from the same stamp set with soft sky ink. The umbrella is coloured with crushed curry.
staying with the vintage look, I decided to tear the edges and sponge with the same colour as the dress, emerald envy.

To finish it off, I put my sewing skills to work, giving it a stitched frame. I had heaps of fun with this card, can' t wait to reveal some of my other creations with this set.
