Dewdrop Craftz #4 - Love, laugh, live

There's a new challege up over at Dewdrop Craftz This time its "Love, laugh, live" so can be interpreted in many ways. Thoughts of romance, sharing funny times or life itself :)
There is also a Pre-January sale on in the shop which lasts until 31st December so pop over to have a look at their cool and very versatile images. One of my favourites I've used for this challenge as is called "Scorcerer" I like using her as she's lovely to colour and can be for any occasion, she also has a cute little face too :D
I also did a special little trick with this one which you'll see on the last pic ;)
Image is coloured with Promarkers and cut out. On the original image she is holding an Orb, I cut this off. Then I've used a piece of white card and distressed it with heritage shimmer inks in pinks and brilliance red gold lightly towards the corners and edges. I overstamped with the red using a swirl stamp which I think is HOTP. Backing paper is printed from bearly mine designs designer extreme III and I've hand stamped the words with the red and edged with pinks & red again.
I mounted the image 3d onto the card but in place of the printed orb I used a 10mm rondelle bead with AB coating so its all shimmery. Below this is 2 6mm red hearts and some pink organza. Now the little trick is with the orb. Its shimmery in daylight because of the AB coating but put it under light at night (i.e halogen lights in a room) and the orb glows and reflects onto the card as seen on the last pic.
Hope you can come an join us over at Dewdrop Craftz challenge now that most of the xmas cards are out of the way yay!

Lovely contrast, Vix. Soft, feminine colours with an image that's anything but 'soft'! Beautiful.
