PTI 9th Anniversary: Introducing Dress-Up Dolls & Stamp-A-Faire 2016

Have mercy, I had no idea how to approach today's PTI 9th Anniversary challenge! I am not much of a clotheshorse so I was afraid my closet would be sadly lacking in inspiration, so I thought about using a Vera Bradley purse, but as much as I LOVE those patterns, they make my head spin when I try to duplicate them. So, after only getting 3 hours of sleep last night, I decided I might be able to glean some inspiration from this top, which is one of my faves. I embossed in black ink on watercolor paper an image from another retro SU! set called Doodle This. I used PTI Hawaiian Shores and Berry Sorbet along with SU! Not Quite Navy and Tim Holtz's Mermaid Lagoon to loosely watercolor in and around the images. I had no idea what I was going for, but this is what I have. I looked through my tremendous stash of cardstock for a piece of SU! Soft Stone but I didn't have any so I used Kraft for my card base and sentiments from Brushed Blooms on a little banner. Thanks for stopping by today and have a blessed weekend!!
