Drawn in a flash...

...this really was...I've just got back from shopping and quickly sketched this dress this afternoon in about 2 minutes...I am losing light so quickly now in my craft room that if I left it any later I would not have been able to take any photos today to post on my blog.

I wasn't going to draw any more outfits, but I quite fancied drawing a dress to fit the entire lenght of a DL card. That's the beauty of drawing your own'd never be able to buy a stamp this big!!


This is supposed to be the back of the dress...not quite sure if it looks that way. The skirt is a kinda fishtail, but I think it would have looked better with proper layers, to look like layers of tulle...something I think I will do next time.

It was a good excuse to use my mosaic bling from Papermania...I knew I would find a use for them one day!

And here they are pictured together! Actually they really do look much better in the flesh...the Glamour Dust really sparkles and gives the dresses quite a lot of depth, especially in artificial light.

Drawing these dresses will be a good excuse to watch Strictly Come Dancing for more ideas, not that I need an excuse I am a huge fan already, but the girl's frocks are amazing aren't they?

Right I'm off to catch up with you all, see you again soon!

Juls said...

another stunningly gorgeous creation...I love the fact it is your own artwork!!! I have an artistic family and took higher art. It sometimes annoys me that I spend so much on stamps, I think if I really tried I could draw my have made me want to get my sketch book out, it has been gathering dust for soooooo long!!

Would still love to buy your designs though!!!

Hi Sarita

Gorgeous work.

Oh to be able to draw like you.

You are right you wouldn't be able to buy a stamp a big as this .. .. and certainly not as beautiful.

I thought of Strictly Come Dancing when I first saw your drawing and then you mention it at the end of your post. Spooky!!

I hope you had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Fiona said...

It's a long time since I've worn anything this glamourous. Does your wardrobe provide you with the inspiration Sarita? Fab sketching and love all the bling. When you go into production you could market your stamps as 'Strictly Sarita's'!! Lol.
Thanks for your lovely comment.

OMG, not only can you create lovely, elegant cards, now you are doing your own drawings (and we all hope, stamps!) BUT now we find out that you could also have a future in fashion design! These are both gorgeous. Loved the post where you showed it from creation to finished project. Now I want not only the stamp, but the dress!
