You are so fab!

Today is new challenge day over at the Southern Girl Challenge Blog and the theme is Texture!

I had so much fun with this gorgeous image from The East Wind, and new exactly what I wanted to create with the girl's dress and hair decoration.

I started off by colouring the image with my Copics, then using a selection of sequins in different sizes I hand sewed each piece to her bodice, and her hairl  I love the texture that it gives the image and how the light bounces off each sequin.  I also added some tiny dots of liquid pearls.  Lastly I glossed her eyes and lips and doodled around the border of the image.

I used a sketch for this card from Mojo Monday, added a gold doily and some black webbing.

Here is the whole card, and you can see that I added some sparkly foam letters for the sentiment.

Here you can see the different layers and textures.  I also used embossed Bazzill cardstock for the background, and doodled a border around it in fine point black pen.
