Our Facebook challenge has gone live today at All Dressed Up and I'm here sharing my inspiration for it. It's one that should be quite easy if you love girly cards, the theme being GIRLS!
I loved this image as soon as I saw it but hadn't had chance to use it yet. It's called Oriental Girl and can be found here in Wendy's shop.
I've used Copics to colour it with. To me oriental hair has a gorgeous bluish black sheen to black hair, so I've used my BV Copics. Hoping I've created the look I wanted. I'd originally coloured her with a blue background. Then my mind went off wandering. I remembered having some brick work background from Wild Orchid Crafts. So I set about fussy cutting the image to mount onto this.
Here you can se a close up.
hat I've actually created is a gift bag which you'll see further down but I wanted to take a close up of the bag section so I can explain what I've done.
I've used some design papers from Maja Design, both of these have been distressed. Below the image is a section of fancy lace I got from Crafteeezee ages ago. Building up on this to the right are a selection of flowers. You should also be able to spot some pearl gems and a few tiny silver dragonfly charms.
To finish the bag off I've picked a selection of lace and ribbons which I've tied in a bow around one of the handles. Some of these ribbons and the lace you can find at The Ribbon Girl.
So that's it, hope you like my inspiration for today. Thanks for taking a look.
Don't forget we also have a blog challenge, you can check this out here :)
