Here I am today sharing with you my new image Grace, she's kinda based on a 1920's flapper.
You can find her in my Etsy shop and get her along with any of my other images with 10% off by quoting code SKIANDREA10 at checkout
Grace has been coloured with ProMarkers and I've also used a black polychromos pencil to add depth to the shading to the very back of the dress.
I have some label dies and I used a large one of these to cut her out with. I then chopped the sides off to give it a straight rather than curved look. I found I didn't have any suitable inks to distress the edges so I used ProMarker around the edges instead.
I wanted to make an Art Deco style card so this was a bit fiddly with lots of strips of left over design papers.
The design papers are from Maja Design and Lemoncraft. I chose ones that were similar colour to the image and the background design paper. The left over strips were cut down to the same size to go at either side of the image. To get the curve at the top and bottom I used the curve of the image to draw a line on the strips and then cut them with scissors. Lined all up together gives them an Art Deco look :)
To finish off I added a BIRTHDAY sentiment in Art Deco style. The original sentiment from Scrapienic says happy birthday I just cut it down and then coloured it with brown ProMarker. I then added a few bits of bling with rhine stones.
Thanks for taking a look today
