gingersnap challenge: Haute Couture


This week the challenge at gingersnap creations has the theme Haute Couture. A nice open theme that can be interpreted in many ways. It's lovely to see how the design team have interpreted it in diferent ways.
I chose to use this magenta stamp, coloured with whispers markers (and the dress is paper pieced), which just reminds me of fashion sketches and the wacky outfits of modern Haute Couture. The layout of the card came about completely by accident. You know the usual.. it started as a one layer card, but then I got a smudge....
