Fancy, Fancy, Fanci!

Another long-desired image from StretchNBubbles... a glamorous gal! Named Fanci ... she is available in the SNB Shop now, and isn't she stunning!

I decided to go vintage with this one.  I can' only imagine the fantastically jewelled dress she might wear.  I came up wit a rhapsody in blue and ecru....

Ingredients: Cardstock - DCWV; Markers - Promarker; Stardust Pens, Glaze Pen - Sakura; Water Pen - Aquash; 3D medallion -  Portacraft; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Lace - polyester blue, and crochet ecru...

I coloured the image with markers and pens, and trimmed it.  Her fascinator/hat uses stardust pen, as does her glittering eyelashes, and her lips - a pink glaze pen.  Hair is by Promarker and Aquash. I added feathers to her head before the 3D medallion embellishment as a headpiece. Using a textured patterned cardstock, I wrapped a layer of blue lace, then crochet ecru lace to feature, and rhinestones to the corners.  Finding that pearls so close to the bottom of the card looked 'icky', I made a ruffle collar of the same blue lace.  The cardbase is textured blue cardstock.

And entering some challenges this card is at:
