Oh what fun was to be had making this creation. My crafty friends Chriss and Chrissy bullied me (oh yes you did!) into joining this monthly challenge by Margaret and I'm soooo glad they did. I've got the bug now so I reckon I'll be one of her regulars - many thanks Margaret!
I used oodles of Stewart Gill's Byzantia paints on my template, then added ruffled organza fabric, feathers and more Stewart Gill - Cerisanctum and Constantine, then painted the delicate rose buds a lighter shade and stuck them on too. The bodice is made up of SG Cerisanctum and embossed in a mix of gold and copper shaken up with Melt Art's Ultra Thick Embossing enamel, and finished off with Swarovski crystals and pearls.
This OTT little number reminds me of the gown I wore for my evening wedding reception - sans feathers you understand?!
