Off To The Races!



It's time for the new challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle... our challenge is themed DAY AT THE RACES/GLITZ AND GLAMOUR.  You see, here in southern Australia, it our Spring Racing Carnival... it's sleek horses, jockeys and silks, and fantastic fashions, flowers and champagne flowing all over the state!  It's really quite a treat to go to the races, the atmosphere is marvellous... 

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Downloads providing a prize of a store credit of $10 ....what fun to spend, huh!

I used an image from the awesome Burlesque Chorus Cutie Set, by the hand of Rick St Dennis. I thought yellow was the perfect colour for a Spring day at the races...   I fussy cut the image, and coloured her with Markers (Spectrum Noir, Promarker Aqua) and glitter pens.  Unfortunately the photo here doesn't show all the glitter on her dress... much of it shows as lighter patches. The photo that DID show the glitter, was not right to use).  I also gathered some whilte tuille (netting) behind her hat, and underneath her skirt, and added rhinestones on her fascinator (hat) and earrings.  I created a background of vintage distressed rose paper (roses are a highlight at the Melbourne races every year!) and a pearly textured Bazill cardstock. The cardbase is a creamy pearl - unusual, and it doesn't show well in the photo either! The pearl trims are also opalescent.

I'm entering this creation into these challenges....
Songbird Challenges - Yellow (26/10)
Whimsy Inspires -#52 Sparkly (9/11)
Emerald Faeries #34 Anything Goes (29/10)  


Do come and join in our DAY AT THE RACES/GLITZ AND GLAMOUR CHALLENGE ! Thanks for peepin'!
