SCD Torso's Bling

Well  another month is here with SCD and this month is going to be 'TORSO' and this week will be 'Bling' now your torso has to be the same size as an ATC as we will be doing a swap at the end of the month, isn't that fun? More about this later in the month. Now I visited some great tags last month and some really cleaver views on our weekly titles. I do hope your going to play this month too! We're nothing with out your participation.

So here is my Torso, You all know I love anything Paris related  and in my mind Paris is all the bling you will ever need lol so here it is. I have took some fragments and one I have added Alcohol inks to, I like the focal point it makes. The other fragment has Stickles (diamond) under it to make a blingy focal point at the top of the Eiffel Tower. I have also taken some distress stickles (more subdude) and used this at certain joints in the tower.

I think you can see the sparkle better in this CU shot. I have taken an image from the Graphics Fairy, and cut it out to fit the torso ATC I have used some inks to distress as well as some stickles etc and I stamped Paris on there too. I was going to add some swirls as well but I managed to stop my self ;0) Some times you can put too much on a project can't you? Well I hope you like this but please go to the SCD blog and go and see the other DT I know you will find lots of inspiration ;0) Love Dawn xx.

Items Used:- Image Graphic Fairy. Stamps, Oxford impressions. Distress inks, stickles, Ranger. Fragments and alcohol inks Tim Holtz.

Hi Dawn, I've not been around in Blogland much recently, but I've been keeping my eye on things. For some reason my blog had stopped following yours - I thought you'd gone a bit quiet! Anyway, I'm back to find you with a fab new blog background! Lovely. Great torso for SCD, I'll try and have a go this week. See ya, Jo x

What absolutely stunning piece of work. I love all the small details and wonderful eiffel tower. the colour is so lovely and you have given the top of the tower that magical effect that you get on the real thing every hour with the lights.
I also wanted to mention i have a new prize challenge over at my dezinaworld blog if you fancy giving it a go.(link on my arty retreat blog)
Hope you have a lovely weekend
