I signed up for a swap on Scrapshare.com. One of my online friends, JenniferD, is hostessing this swap. I love her work and just couldn't resist signing up for a few groups. The swap is for elements to be used on a scrapbook page (or two page spread). This group's theme is RED. I used a card I made a few weeks back as inspiration (link).
The gal is stamped using a stamp from the Bombshell Angel from Bombshell Stamps. I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored her with Copic markers. The dress she's wearing is from a cutting file that I purchased from Bombshell Stamps and cut using Make the Cut (MTC) software and my KNK Zing. I added some shading to the dress using Ragner/Tim Holtz Distress Inks before adhering the dress to the cut out stamped image.
The border is made using papers from My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found collection). The ribbon is from Stampin' Up and the brad is also from Stampin' Up. It's a Build-A-Brad that are discontinued. The Build-A-Brad has a half inch punched image from one of the paper patterns in the MME collection under the acrylic dome.
The medallion (for lack of a better term) was created with MTC software by joining a lot of circles very carefully, welding it to a larger circle, replicating and re-welding to each other to make sure that the image is symmetrical. I then added a couple of shadow layers with a black out of any open spaces on the last shadow layer. Lasly, I distressed the edges of all of the layers using Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Ink before adhering the layers together. The paper used is all from MME - Lost & Found collection. The paper has small glitter accents that add just the right touch of bling.
