Victorian Lady MMSC14

Hi Everyone, it's that time of the week again, my favourite day is Tuesday because I know I have the new Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge to look forward too along with all the fantastic DT cards to browse over and get inspiration from. My next favourite day is the day I upload my card/project after completing the challenge. If you haven't visited Priscilla, then please just click on the name highlighted and hey presto you are there.

I bought this lovely image from my local craft store, she is one of four on a A4 sheet, I just couldn't decide the colour scheme for this project so I made up a mood board to help me chose the colours etc for the project, and although the image is really pretty I though she was missing something, a little colour. So using my glimmer chalks I decided to give her a make-over. I gave her blue eyes, golden eyeshadow, red lips and pink blush cheeks, I think she look great. I also coloured her hairband and the roses she is holding.

Thank you so much for visiting me at my little space, do come back anytime,
you are always welcome.

Suzi, I love the style of this card, the soft vintage look :) Your clever way of punching and then overlaying for the red is so great. I will have to give it a try. Thanks for playing MMSC with us, and we appreciate your kind words too! xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT
