Exquisite Gown for Thirst for Creativity Sketch Challenge

 Another exquisite gown to add to the series.
The sketch from Thirst for Creativity
was the perfect showcase for this peachy gorgeous
and elegant gown to add to the Exquisite Gown Collection. 
So, off I went digging
through collected treasures to work
with this piece and decided that the perfect
element would be a piece of chipboard.
Here I have tried to mirror the texture on the right
hand side of the exquisite gown.  

The texture on the chipboard was created by
adding a small intricate lace image
on top of colors of the dress and
then heat set with a white embossing powder.
Some more close ups.

This piece of art was created on a 9 x 12 mixed media paper from Canson.
Thirst for Creativity Sketch No. 32 is currently ongoing until December 5, 2015.  You can find the challenge here.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope I have inspired you to create a series of your own.
