Elegant Lady in Blue

Hello Everyone!

For today I am going to playing along with Cards in Envy and The Paper Players. I cannot believe I am submitting early... So un-me!! I was, however, very inspired. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

At first, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the hat. It just didn't 'fit' with the elegant dress. Then I thought of the English with all their magnificent hats. I thought drawing in feathers would be a good option. 

I would love to say extending the dress was all my idea! 
I was surfing Pinterest when I found someone who extended the dress. Genius, I just had to CASE it.

Left/Below: I am not sure I captured the sparkle that comes from the dress. All I did was paint a piece of CS. When it was still wet I added Robin's Egg blue glitter. In reality, it looks so pretty. Right/Bottom: I used the small die cut from the SU Paisley Framelits Die and a small blue dot. It seemed to be the perfect embellishment to finish off the card.


Challenges Entered: 

This image from SU is very popular. I seem to see it everywhere from Pinterest, Instagram, and personal blogs. Each interpretation is so different and creative. I am just astounded how one image can transform into a beautiful work of art. I just hope I can do this wonderful image the creativity it deserves. 

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

What a clever idea to add feathers to the hat and extend the dress - I would love to see the original you CASE'd to create your design Shawna, what a shame you didn't include a link in your post. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
