Wacky Wednesday


Hello everyone and welcome to Wacky Wednesday!!!!! I am excited to be your hostess today because we are going to take a walk down memory lane!!! My challenge to you and the Red Hot Mommas is to make a card using a favorite memory in your past as inspiration. It can be a favorite moment, event, trip, article of clothing...anything that brings a smile or a giggle. Oh, one more thing....you must tell us the story behind the memory!!!
My senior prom dress was long and slender like this dress (minus the bow) and the most beautiful color of emerald green. I felt sooo glamorous that night....I even had an emerald green satin purse and long white gloves...Whoohoo!!!
The dress was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. Sponging was done around the edges before I removed the image from the Spellbinders die to create the white edge. Sewing was done around the edges of the background layer, the black crystal flourish was atached, and the black silk ribbon finished it off.
Paper: Prism Simply Smooth White, Black, 7 Gypsies dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, So Saffron, More Mustard
Accessories: Black Crystal Flourish, Black Silk Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Nestabilities, Foam Tape


I know you can hardly believe this (since I'm not a day over 35) but I had a poodle skirt when I was 10 years old!!! It wasn't this pretty but I was such a hit at the roller skating rink!!!!
This long card was such a fun card to make....the image is on the Glitz dp...I just added the poodle skirt over the one she had on and cutout her arm so it fell over the skirt. The skirt was stamped on a scrap piece of Basic Grey paper and the tiny poodle was colored with a copic. Black pearls were added to the skirt and pink rhinestones were added to the earring. The Rubberencker Diva sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and a large eyelet and ribbon finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker's Poodle Skirt and sentiment from Rubbernecker's Diva Inchies set #422
Paper: Prism Simply Smooth White, Black, Glitz dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Black Pearls, Pink Rhinestones, Large Eyelet, Ribbon, foam tape

These are really cute and yes a trip down memory lane. Lots of crinolines under the circle skirts(poodle skirts minus the poodle), high school in the 50's, bobby sox and loafers. I wonder if I have any stamps to take me down memory lane...will think about this....Great cards Joan!
