'Fashion' at FSC

"Fashion"
is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your creation...and then just follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!

With Fashion comes a little attitude...
(as it should)
 which you need to carry off the style.
And these girls from Darkroom Door sure have loads of style and attitude!


They are from the set, 
'Just my Style'.
Goodness, to have their figures would be awesome!
(dream on Dot)

Each time I looked at these lovely ladies I thought that they looked so classy and stylish - so the background needed a richness and attitude to match.

Then came the girls...
when I went to add colour to them I was stuck!
In the end I decided to stay with white and I water-coloured a little DI black soot 
(very watered down to create a soft grey) 
- to take off the starkness.
And a little copic magic for the skin tones.

 To finish off I simply added a touch of sparkle to each gal 
(the necklace, the hat and buttons, and on the belt and bow) 
and on some of the diamonds.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,

Hi Dot, these ladies look absolutely stunning against that rich background. A brilliant idea not to colour them.

Talk about having your finger on the pulse of trends Dot, I've got a feeling this leaving the image white and colouring the background is going to be hot news, especially when it looks this amazing. You're a very talented lady and once again I stand in awe. Jenny x
