DREAMING WITH THE DRAGONS IN RED....

Hello my Lovelies, well it's very late in the evening and I finally finished my tag. The Sweet Miss May asked us to make a tag with red and D, the Dragon team here, made some gorgeous tags, they always inspire me to dream along..
. If you know me, I loooooove little dresses, it's one of my favorite things to create so of course I picked D for Dress.



Yesterday I started out with a sheet of paper I had in my stash which already had red and white circles on it from another project. I used all the red inks I had to color over the white then added circles with white paint and persimmon stamping up ink, I also made splotches with the white paint and persimmon ink. I cut out an old brown school picture frame for the backing, edging it in black soot.
Today I made a stamp, it is a dress, in case you thinks it's a cat :O).
Added some script in persimmon ink for the background..



Miss Julie Ann had sent me a dress form and I have been saving it for something special. I had 2 baby wipes from all the red I used yesterday, so I thought I would use this to make a dress. It has 2 layers a flowing top over the under dress, I like an angle on clothes, no straight lines for me...



 I added 4 thin ribbons for the topping , 2 are cloth and the other 2 are the plastic curly ones...



 I added stickles to trim the top part and on the belt, which you can see is still wet and  punched a circle out of some extra paper I had sitting around from all the red I was using and stamped my D, edged it with a black copic..


                         A close up of the angles on the dress...

I must be tired I have made so many spelling mistakes, it's like I'm typing an unknown language, so I'm off to bed and will post this in the morning, before I head out...
Thanks so much for stopping by my nest, it's always a pleasure to have you here. Wishing you all a wonderful creative week, ((( BIG HUGS )))

                                               Namaste!!!!

So clever to create your own stamp and a cat you say, aren't you silly, I immediately recognised it for an elegant dress!
The baby wipes were made to be draped around the dressform to become a piece of couture.
Gorgeous tag art!
