Doily Party Dress

Yes, I'm still playing with doilies, and, no, my Secret Sister will not be getting any doily cards from me this round.  That would be a give-away!

So, I decided to get a little creative and color the paper doily black.  At first, I started sponging the color on - then I thought, what the heck, and just started painting the doily by rubbing the entire Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad across it!  That actually worked much better.

As with the last doily dress, for the bodice, I used another doily and some white cardstock, punched them both at the same time with a heart punch, adhered the punched doily layer to the punched white cardstock, trimmed off a little bit of the sides of the heart, added the ribbon and a brad, and here you have my version of a black and white party dress with pink trim.

Also, see my original Doily Dress, from where it all began....

Here's a tutorial on how to do the doily folds to make the dress.
