you just know when something should be in black and white dont you...

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well and your all well and happy...I decided to show you one of the samples I have made for the Crafts and Me stamps stand at the Stamparama show in Stevenage...I havent a clue what this beautiful Art Deco stamp is called but she will be released at the show on the 14th August...isnt it wierd that when you look at an image it just tells what colour it should be...when I first saw this beauty I knew she should be done in monochrome, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her a bit to add a bit of dimension, as you have to keep your samples quite flat for a show so nothing gets knocked off or squashed, well hopefully anyway...the fabulous papers are from the My Minds Eye lush range...all I needed to finish the card was some pearls and a grey satin ribbon (I hope that bow stays on lol)...the lush sketch is from Papertake weekly challenge...have a wonderful day everyone

Your bling is perfectly applied and your shading on her skin looks real. I enlarged the image it appears to have the texture of real skin.
