Red and Black Torso ATC

Well, after my lovely day out yesterday and then popping over to see my parents this morning, I've been able to spend a bit of time this afternoon making my torso atc for this week's Red and Black challenge at SCD.  I already knew the kind of card I wanted to create and had found a suitable image - it was just a case of putting it all together and hoping it turned out okay ..... and here it is .......
For the background, which you actually don't see much of in the finished ATC, I used some black velvety card cut from a cologne box that my son had finished with and asked if I wanted (the family are so well-trained nowadays - don't throw anything away till they've checked with me first! *LOL*).  I then attached a luxuriously soft red feather and added the image of the young lady, at the same time wrapping part of her body with some lacy red fabric.  I also added a lacy flower, button filled with silver stickles and a red heart, plus a black gauzy flower with a red gem centre and another red gem in the top right corner.  Stuck the word "pose" across her back and added more silver stickles around the edges and under the flower.

Hope you like it!


  1. Perfect for both the colour theme and the format very sexy! xx Zoe

  2. How fantastic, just a wonderful torso.

  3. There is something so seductive about red and black and your card has captured that. It's lovely.
