The current challenge at CRAFT Challenge is to add a charm:
Jo offered this image as a freebie on her blog - Trimgym stamps.
I printed her out as I had an idea that I might like to use her for a card. Then I spilt some gold beads all over my work area. I decided to add some glue to the bodice and put them there rather than try and pick them all up - the container was too full anyway!
Once I started working in gold, I kept the colour scheme going and then discovered it fit perfectly with the charm.
The ribbon across the top is a satin ribbon that I purchased recently. I made a gold flower from some gold scraps that came in a paper scraps pack. This is the third flower that I have made and I seem to be getting better at them now.
The remainder of the colouring on the fashionable lady's dress has been done with Kindy Glitz - Crystallina and Gold mixed. The skin and hair have been coloured with copics.
The finishing touch is some Peelcraft strips across the bottom of the card.
