Practicing to Dare

When the Dare to Dresden Blog Hop was announced I knew I needed to participate.  I purchased the Stampin' Up! Dresden Die a few months ago and was itchin' to try it out. 
I started out by making a practice dresden.  Here it is... 

This plate was made using the larger of the two petals, it measures 18 inches across.  We liked it but this matches nothing in our house.  (I was afraid of messing up good fabric so we used this fabric from my "what was I thinking pile"  just in case we messed up).

Ok, moving on....

Micaela asked me to make some in her new bedroom colors which are hot pink and black.  For these I used the smaller of the two petals.  I used 16 different fabrics.  Notice the weenie dog, music notes and scissors in the black & white prints. 

 
Now that we had the dresden plates made up we were ready to brain storm about what to make.
