Fashionable Trio

This is posted today on the Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC blog. Our latest Rebel challenge is to stamp something fashionista  (you have until September 8). This is my dt sample.

 
I used the Milliner Misses stamp plate.  I paired it with the background stamp found in the Just Sayin' stamp plate.  It reminds me of the veils that used to be attached to women's hats.  I didn't have any real hat netting, but I found a perfect match in my stash--no doubt from a produce bag--but, hey, it works for my veiled theme.

With a little black card stock matting and some help from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 18 diecuts, I think this tag is stylin'--clean and simple.  

Entering this tag at:

the Cheerful Stamp Pad  #67 Your Choice.  You're allowed two entries.  This is my second one.  Winner is by random draw.

Fashionable Stamping Challenge Blog #54 Clean and Simple
Clean & Simple usually conjures up images of very elegant and unfussy but again your imagination can wander wherever you want.  And as the title implies, there must be some stamping.

Frilly and Funky:  My Steamer Trunk:   This fashionable trio would not leave home without their elegant hats--both wearing them for the journey and packing them in their steamer trunks (to match other outfits).  My mother was one such fashionista.

Hats would be a must pack on a steamer vacation back in the day so your CAS tag fits the theme so nicely at Frilly and Funkie. Love the colour scheme and the "netting". Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.
Hugs!

Great tag Helene. Love the way you've used the netting at the top of the tag and I agree, no elegant lady could possibly travel without one. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie this time. Hugs, Jenny x
