Dynamic Duos #7 - Party Dress

Hello Friends,
This week we have a Black Tie Colour combination of Melon Mambo and Basic Black with Neutrals.  The Desert Option is to add Ribbon.  I used this Art Impression Dress Stamp for my main image which I have had for far too long and not used.  I resized the bodice as I felt the original looked too small, gathered the black tulle and added it to my dress. I used a ribbon bow at the waist and some black hearts on the dress to jazz it up a bit.  The Whisper White background was made using the hearts from S/U's Textured Impressions EB Folder.  Where the EB Folder overlapped and flattened the heart impressions when it was in the Big Shot I had to do a bit of extra hand embossing to bring the heart shapes back to life. I used the embossing folder to line up the impressions in the indented part of the embossing folder and a dry embossing tool. For my Finishing Touch I added some crystals on the sentiment. Enjoy! Hope you will join us this week.
