One of my favorite nights of the year! Ok, I admit it I love to watch the Oscars. Who doesn't? I love to see all the beautiful gowns, imagining all the work that must go into one single dress. Seed beads, crystals, pearls, and lace means a lot of hand stitching. I definitely had favorites this year and each one was so different from each other. I think my favorites were the 2 with the turquoise colored necklaces...Kate Blanchett and Lara Spencer's dresses were of the simplest of lines, fitting beautifully and topped off with bold bib necklaces. I liked Gwyneth's dress a lot even though it was criticized greatly in the press. Perhaps it's because I work with a company that produces flower embellishments and I knew I just had to recreate that dress on a paper doll. Who couldn't appreciate THE dress of the night? Jennifer Lopez was exquisite in that dress no matter what the opinion was of the neckline.
I couldn't wait to use my new Marisol stamp from Prima Marketing to show you the versatility of this stamp. For all of you that like to alter the clothes, this ones for you! I used my watercolor pencils for Jennifer's dress in a nude, peachy shade and piled on tiny sequins for the beads. I used scrapbook paper for the others, hoping to capture the colors the best I could. Kate's necklace was fun to make, just layering different shades and sizes of rhinestones. I even altered the hair since ponytails seemed to be the style of the night.
This stamp was made for all the DYI stampers out there. I hope you have as much fun with her as I do.
