Hollywood Glamour

When considering what stamp to work with for each week’s DT artwork for The Stampsmith there is a dilemma as they are all so amazing. Anyway, my choice for this week is The Bellydancer, an UM stamp. As I looked through my supplies I wanted anything that shimmered but still remaining tasteful to evoke old style Hollywood Glamour.

I settled upon some shimmery fabric which I wrapped around a tag made from recycled cardboard. Then layering some silver handmade paper, organza and beaded crystal trim. After stamping the image I dipped all edges into Deko Ice Crystal (available from The Altered Element) and tucked a marabou feather (available from The Altered Element) behind the image. An old clip-on ear-ring was inserted into the hole of the tag and a recycled crystal bead added to her outfit.

As I photographed the tag the sunlight was dancing off all the shimmery and sparkly elements.

Hopefully I achieved a glamorous look.

At Gingersnap Creations one of the Words of Inspiration for May is “Shine”, I would say she fits right into that category.
