I've been coveting the Tattered Lace Glamour Puss die that came with one of their magazines ever since I first saw it. I finally caved in and picked up a back issue from eBay a couple of months ago. Inspired by one of the sample cards on the Tattered Lace website I made this:
Isn't she fabulous?! The stairway die is also by Tattered Lace, from the Essentials collection. I used plain white card and coloured the vertical faces of the steps using a Spectrum Noir light grey marker.
The Glamour Puss die itself cuts out all the detail in the dress, but I wanted to keep it in so I taped across the back of the die cut before removing it from the die. I used a black Spectrum Noir marker to colour the dress then went over it with Dovecraft Crystal glitter glue. The black highlighted all the green elements in the glitter glue, giving the dress a beautiful emerald shimmer.
I used a gold pen to highlight her jewellery and gave her some hot red lipstick, black hair and a matching clutch bag.
The wallpaper is damask patterned paper. Next time I would use a paper with a smaller pattern, but overall I like the effect.
