it's party girl friday!

or: Oma goes Androgynous as the caption of my inspiration photo reads ;)

Yep, get ready for another installment of my inspired by fall/winter 2016 fashion. A trend I'm calling (thanks to your help) Shakespearean Punk. This was my inspiration today - still from the ASOS catalog.

What inspired me? Well, is there anything not in her style - there's everything but the kitchen sink. And actually, there's some hardware in the purse strap!!!

Well, I picked up on the pink of her hair, the rainbow of her turtleneck, the embroidered stems on her leather jacket, that texture of her sweater. Remember my take on this fashion - the weirder, the better.

So out came STAMPlorations Party Girl. She got all gussied up in her party dress with a Zig clean color pen striped bodice topped with Wink of Stella, and a skirt colored then twice-heat-embossed (my new technique for AAA Cards challenge!) in a nod to the sweater. I used the hair stamp and Versamark, stamped it randomly on the skirt and heat embossed black. Then I repeated the step over the black embossing and heat embossed it with glitter embossing powder. Talk about layers and texture (so I'm joining the fun at A Blog Named Hero where it's about Texture!). Notice I even gave the BG around her a pink watercolor wash in a nod to the hair!

I die cut her using a Lifestyle Crafts Diamond die and popped her up on my cardbase which I'd stamped using STAMPlorations Smile - heat embossed black and messy watercolored with my Zigs.

A double-stamped sentiment from Party Time (once blue and once heat embossed black) seemed strong enough to  match Party Girl and a strip of washi (in yet another weird pattern!) finished up the inside.

Go, Party Girl, go! And y'all have a wonderful weekend. We've still got summery temps here so we plan to take advantage of that!

Ah-mazing! This girl is just plain fun! I'd have loved to have a dress like this back in the day! The rich, rich green of her skirt, and how you made it look like layers and layers of netting is fantastic. What an amazing card. Love how you've run with your Shakespearean Punk. Have a great weekend. Bev
