Decoupage and Unstampabelles Challenge

It is the halfway point of the Unstampabelles challenge to create a dress WITHOUT using stamps. I have used the Papermania Art Deco pack to decoupage a dress - a red dress. This pack is full of images I could have used and every now and then I feel guilty I have purchased the set and not made more than two or three items from it. However, it will not go way and I am sure when I need a quick item or my MOJO needs a restart, I will turn to it and make another item (so we crafters try and explain away our various purchases.......)

I hope this will inspire you to have a go at creating a dress in some format - decoupage, folding, origami, stickers, patty cake papers.........they are all there so far! We would love to see it and I am sure you an do much better than me!!

I added a hearts sticker to the card front

I am not very good at decoupage, and so could not work this one out that well - every time I layered I seemed to get the man's face cut off, no matter how I tugged and twisted the layers. I decided eventually that it was meant to be layered as is, so if you notice that his face is not quite right (you will now after reading this) that is why!

You can see that there are at least three layers, and that I had a smaller one layer die cut of the same couple which I used inside the card. The sentiments come from the pack as well as does the background papers. 

The whole is attached to a folded piece of SU black card and front sentiment is layered onto the same before being attached. With the Eiffel Tower in the background and the moon shining between the branches of the tree it is very romantic so it had to be an Anniversary card. 

I will enter this in the following challenges:
