Happy Saturday! I love Saturdays since it's my only day of the week to sleep in a little, but I also love Saturdays because it means it's time for another Inspiration challenge hosted by Stef on Splitcoaststampers. Today's inspiration piece comes from Faviana Prom Dresses at faviana.com.
Purple is one of my favorite colors, so I was immediately drawn to this magenta colored prom dress and pulled out a very old Stampin' Up stamp set called Haute Coutre. As I worked with this stamp set today, I wondered if anyone else still used this set. I know a lot of stampers retire old sets or sell them off, but I have such a hard time letting go of my stamps, thinking I just may want to use them again one day....such is the case today.
The card stock I used is this orchid colored Bazzill, as well as the magenta, dot-embossed card stock I used for the dress. I stamped the dress onto this beautiful card stock, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I added Martha Stewart glitter to the bottom of the dress, as well as the shoe and purse images. I used my Slate Copic marker to color two of the small prima flowers, and I added small pearl beads to the flower centers.
Like most people, I have a few regrets in my life and one of them is that I never went to prom in high school. I was too busy working part-time, going to school, and dating a young man who had no interest in going to prom. However, had I gone, I would have loved to have worn a dress similar to this one! How about you? Did you go to your prom, and, if you did, what did you wear?
