Wedding dress, take two....

Hi Everyone!  Yesterday was a great day.  We hit a record high of 66 degrees, which is crazy for January in Iowa.  The sun was out but the only draw back besides having to work, was the fact that is was a cool wind.  But a great day none the less. 
 Yesterday I shared the wedding dress art that I made on a scrap of luan.  You can check it out here.  But I knew as soon as I pulled up the pictures of it that it was missing something. 
It was missing the antique look to it.  I did sand it, well, the background but I couldn't bring myself to sand the dress.  It definitely needed to be antiqued.

So tonight when I got off work, I antiqued the whole thing.  And here is how it turned out.  
Now that's much better.

What do you think? Hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by.
