Wear the pretty dress

Verdette is from the most resent Stampotique release.  She stands demurely with her hands positioned to create a heart.  She's a daughter, a mother, a sister, a sorority girl, a bridesmaid, or a bride. She becomes any gal you wish for her to be with paper piecing and or a hair trim.  Today Verdette is the girl in a pretty dress.

For the background I applied acrylic paints with stencils on the Gelli plate adding collage scraps face down to the plate. These pieces had glue on the back, and adhered to the printing paper with the printing process. The process is a type of Chine colle which translates to Chinese gluing. 

I printed the quote using Stamping Nico with is one of my favorite fonts to use with my handmade cards.  Verdette is stamped with StazOn and clear embossed.  I used dye ink to stamp her on scrapbook paper to piece her dress.  Verdette stands above the Chine colle surface with silicon dots. 

Thanks for stopping by. You can also find me on Facebook.
