My vintage lady is coloured in with Prismacolour pencil crayons. I'm still experimenting with these but it's coming along. I love the colour and depth these pencils give a stamped image.

I have tried colouring copic markers but that is another LONG conversation.

 I have an old bake-lite phone that worked well
for posing my card.

Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - Finesse the Dress

This is inspiration photo for this weeks Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.
the Title is "Finesse the Dress" click here to find the post

My inspiration from this picture were the colours and dress. I played with fall themes, pumpkins and leaves they all got blown away. Pardon the pun.
I cut the dress and embossed it with flourish and added the embellishments. It started to come together, I added the string as belt.

Blue dress hanging on background flourish. It's a playful thank you card.

This is a detail of dress with pearl embellishments and rope belt. I repeated the same embossing as background it adds depth and fun to dress. I used glue dots to give dimension to the dress.

It's a grungy/cocktail thank you card!

Moxie Fab World - Textured to Perfection

Moxie Fab world's competition with textures, here is one of the inspiration photos used as encouragement.

To enter the competition click here.

When I saw this challenge my brain defaulted to `fall` and leaves. I gessoed the background and mixed in pan pastels green. To provide more texture i pressed in the spine of the leaves into the gesso. I used corrogated cardboard as backdrop for leaves. On the cardboard, i used sandpaper on to give a grungy feel.
I cut the leaves from shapeabilities ``nested leaves`` and embossed the with thank you embossing folder.

As I looked at i realized it was layers of thankfulness. The twine added a nice accent of fall red. Even the the black leaves have thank anf you embossed on them.
