a steampunk babe, finished jacket and a top hat...

Good morning everyone, I hope you all have something wonderful planned for the weekend or are you going trick or treating lol...phew I finished my Daughters costume in the nick of time...a little hint for the future if your eyes aren't 100% never elect to use invisible thread on something because it really is invisible unless its on the reel...it just vanished before my eyes, it took me five goes with a needle threader to thread a needle then I had to keep checking to see if it was still there...it reminded me of a magic trick I used to show my Daughter when she was small lol...I took a couple of photos of the jacket and cute top hat but because it was dark I'm sorry but they aren't very good but I think you can just about see them...anyway my card for today, how sassy is this gorgeous Kenny K image shes called Scarlett West, I love KK images don't you they always make me smile...I coloured her with distress inks (sorry I keep forgetting to add a list of colours but will when I remember I promise) and teamed her up with this amazing Graphic45 paper, its from The Steampunk Debutante collection and is called Mechanical Mind...its a perfect match for this babe isn't it...I added just a teeny bit of dusky pink ribbon and some circles cut from the paper...the lush layout is from Cute Card Thursday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Charisma Cardz challenge and I'm not sure it fits the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge which is dots, but I think the paper is sorta dotty with all those circles

here's the top hat I made...it was much easier than I thought it would be and its made from black card and I put a gold ribbon around it to match the jacket

the jacket turned out really well don't you think...it was a blue cropped jacket, amazing what a bit of dye and adding some tails and a few added bits and pieces will do isn't it...well she is delighted with it and that's what counts isn't it...she left all smiles and really looking forward to the party and she has promised she will have some photos taken on her in the whole outfit so I can show you all...I'm not sure though it depends how many Halloween cocktails she has I think lol...well I'm off the opticians today to help pick my lovely Phil's new glasses, whatever your up to have a brilliant Saturday

First, this card is amazing. I don't know quite how you managed to color in her skirt and still make it see-through...I always love your coloring but this is tops! As for your daughters costume, just goes to show how multi-talented you are. Sure hope she remembers the pictures would love to see the whole thing on her. Have a great weekend,
