Little black dress

There was a weekly prompt at Creative Constructionthat said to create something along the theme of 'little black dress'. I decided to participate this week, and i have created an 8" by 8" piece of art.

I originally created the background with acrylics and pencil crayons. but i was displeased with the way the pencil crayons don't completely cover the white with watercolour paper. I do wish in situations like that that i had watercolour pencils. Either way, it just wasn't working. I took spraypaint and covered the whole thing with gold. Which made for an interesting effect, as the swirls from the acrylic paint were still textured but everything was gold. I liked the way that turned out. I then created a stencil of a dress, cut out the center part and painted it black. Added the sign 'p'tit robe noir' (french for little black dress) and then added the rhinestones all over. Voila!

So, apparantly this is a contest. The winner gets a 10$ certificate to How wonderful that would be! Wish me luck :)

I love what you did with the dress theme. This gold background looks terrific with black dress.
