Crafty Cardmakers #16 DT - A Feminine Celebration

Our challenge for you this fortnight over at Crafty Cardmakers is A Feminine Celebration so to depict a female in any form on your project. The girls have come up with a wide variety of designs so pop on over to check them out. Toria's made the most adorable little flowers on hers and Judie has made something completely different and has clearly put a lot of heart and soul in!


Our special guest is Cindy Royal who has a very wide variety of styles and techniques on her blog and a very wicked sense of humour to boot!

My creation uses a stamp by Sweet Pea called The Serene Night coloured with promarkers. The ribbon and leaves have also been coloured with promarkers. I've added a little hanging charm made of beads and a metal butterfly.
I changed my usual choice for skin colours for this one as I wanted her pale and interesting and to give a contrast with the black hair.
I've used a fiskars scallop punch down one side and stuck a piece of holographic silver behind it so its very shiny :)

Entering this into...

Sweet Pea Stamps - March customer challenge
Stamp with Fun - Spring
Papertake - Buttons, bows, brads and bling (Has bows and bling)
