Welcome back! I hope everyone had a great weekend and got to relax .... It actually SNOWED Saturday night! Mind you, last weekend it was a record breaking 88 degrees in Rochester, NY. Go figure......This weeks "Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge" (details found HERE) had me pulling out my QuicKutz "Chandelier" die. No other reason than I wanted to use it! The old fashioned ballroom concept came together from there.....and when I think of chandeliers, hanging jewels come to mind.The shoes were made using a Cuttlekids die and shrink plastic, A layer of Viva Decor Glitter Liner in "Holo Iridescent" was applied to the shoes for a glass slipper effect. Lots of great "Viva Decor" products can be purchased HERE. All the beads on the chandelier were beaded by hand, kinda time consuming but worth the effort I thought. I've given up on clean and simple cards anyways! Just when I thought I couldn't get any more "over the top", I added gold veins to the black floor tiles to simulate marble. I"m hopeless I tell ya! The White panel was stamped with the same gold veins as the floor tiles and then distressed with the Zutter " Distrezz-it-all". I hope you enjoyed a trip to my ballroom......
