Now let's celebrate with our NEW RELEASE and get hoppin' and shoppin'!!

My card uses the other image from the Showgirls set (I showed off the first of the 2 on Friday) and you'd best break out the sunglasses folks cos this is BRIGHT!

When I first saw this stamp with the costume and feathers, I immediately thought of some of the troupes I'd seen  at dance competitions when my daughter was younger and used to do loads of them.  There were a few schools that used to use almost neon colours on the stage and so I thought I'd kind of recreate that feel.
She's coloured in Copics and I'm afraid I tidied away the pens before I noted the colours down. I used plenty of Glamour Dust for sparkle. I've used coloured thread as usual to stitch the layers.

I coloured the bling around the image with Copics to match the papers. The sentiment comes with the set and I've used a Whimsy stamp around it with the matching film strip die to cut it out.

I used the other sides of the papers to decorate the inside. The film strip is from Tim Holtz. Luckily I had a few bright flowers in my stash and this lovely Parrot Green pleated ribbon, I put a little white lace underneath as contrast and voila! C'est fini!

Thank you so much for dropping by : ) x x
