Love to Dance - ADU

Time for another fabulous All Dressed Up release and this month's images are little beauties and 'must haves', every single one of them.  Take a look at the All Dressed Up Etsy shop to see all of the new images and then be sure to stop at the ADU Challenge Blog to see what the rest of Team A have created.  You still have time to enter the current challenge which is easy peasy... it's a sketch to follow so grab those markers, pencils, or pens and we would like to see the project(s) you create.
I chose to use Love to Dance which is such a pretty image and I wanted to keep it fairly clean and simple.  I started by adding the computer generated sentiment and the image to paper, masking it  and then inked my stamp in Memento's London Fog ink.  To make the ink very faint, I stamped it on scrap paper first and then down over the image.  Now that I look at it, I think it could have been even lighter but overall, I'm happy with the way it turned out.  There is no name on the stamp but it is made my Judikins and numbered 2206J.  I'm not sure where I got the stamp but am thinking it was an old Ebay purchase.
To jazz it up a bit, I pulled string through the front of the card and attached a purple button and voila... done!
 Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Love this one, Marilyn! You always do such a lovely job with these tall ADU girls. I have CASEd your idea of pairing a sentiment alongside these leggy wonders many times. It makes for a perfect combination and keeps the card CAS, while featuring Wendy's images.
The button idea is perfect and creates a visual triangle within the design! Brilliant!
Hugs, Cathy xx
