Lady with Hat


Okay no more procrastination!!  Yup, I finally completed my card for a couple challenges.  First up Playing in Paradise Challenge #11, the theme is  to take any sepia or black and white photo or image and use a POP of color.


And second, the Die Cut Diva's March challenge - Let's Emboss it.

This is what I came up with:


Okay may be I use a few POPs of colours, but I thought this Magenta stamp is perfect for the challenge.  The image is stamped with Tuxedo Black and heat embossed with clear powder.  The  background is created using distress ink spritzed with water on watercolour paper.  The die cut colour butterflies are on their way to join the B&W butterfly on her hat.  ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
