Perfect Pointe

We've a fantastic theme over at Fussy and Fancy Fridays this fortnight - Flowers, Lace and Pearls, some of my favourite embellishments :)

I coloured her up with Copics just after Christmas then didn't know what to do with her so left her for a while.  I thought she'd be perfect for this challenge inspiration, the design kind of evolved as I went along.

I've sprinkled some embossing enamel around the image using white and gold.  There are a couple of tiny brass corners, you can just see one at the bottom right of the image above, these I got from Noor Design.  The edges of the image were distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.

My design papers are from Maja Design, Joy Craft and Studio Light.  All these and the image have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  I've also sprkingles some embossing enamel and glitter onto the top layer of design papers.

Here's a close up of the flower section.  You can find the lace heart, the flat back pearl string and pins at The Ribbon Girl.  You can also find some of my flowers there.  The rest at Wild Orchid Crafts.

Layering up like a mad thing as you can see with pinks, aquas and creams, my final touch was to add a wood chip "love" heart from Scrapiniec.  

Hope we see you over at the challenge this time
