I made the flower about a month ago and thought it was perfect for this card! The papers are from Prima's Nature Garden, beautiful! The bling is Say it in Crytsals, I think, and the metal corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts! I used a Martha Stewart punch for scallops and it does a beautiful job of standing in for lace. I have a hard time with using lace, especially black lace. To me it looks lingerie-like and out of place on a card, but my taste changes frequently and I am slowly warming up to the idea.
Here's my beautiful lady colored up. I need to practice more with black hair, but I am really happy with her light and bright face. I swear her butt has more shading IRL! Kenny K images are so fun to color, but I,at least, need to venture away from Lady R for a little bit!
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Kenny K's Krafty Krew (ice cream- blackberry)
Dream Valley Challenges (die cuts and punches- doily lace punch)
Shopping Our Stash (monochromatic)
Papertake Weekly (Anything Goes)
Little Miss Muffet Challenges (Scallops)
Thanks for having a look and keeping me inspired. I don't know how you crafty peeps do it! It's so fun, but without you guys to look up to and be inspired by, I wouldn't be able to do it! The creativity and talent out there is astounding, intimidating and motivating! Which bring me to saying a big thank you for all the challenge blogs out there and their fabulous DT's !!!
