This was actually inspire by several things. First I received this lacy corner die cut from Sharon Madson in a Teapot Tickle today then I went to Kia's Inspriation board "Paper Fashion Drawn and Wearable" where I found this dress with the swirling flaired bottom.
I decided to bring in the pretty aqua / seafoam tones with the navy (like the inspiration) by stenciling a design to fit in the corner piece. I got out some of my homemade stencil paste and tinted it with Pearl-EX powders. Once dry I fussy cut around my design and tucked it into the corner. Now to die cut my sentiment . . . . I have 8 different shades of Navy paper . . . .NONE of them matched the lacy corner from Sharon. Then I spied a Kleenex box - it had several shades of aqua in the bg with different shades of navy design - crossed my fingers that this would help blend my combo. Finished with some big pearlescent sequins centered with tiny blue beads.

Well designed and constructed, Linda! That is one pretty gown. Loved reading about how this came to be. And you nailed it! Gotta love the serendipities of tickles. The tissue box pattern works so well!

I am totally laughing that you confiscated the tissue box to get a good shade of blues ( and isn't that how it always goes?) we won't discuss how many shades of teal and aqua I have. lol. this is so pretty with the layers of textures and lace Linda.
