You Never Go Out of Style!

Today, I've used Poppy the Circus Girl, one of my Saturated Canary digi images. I simply adore Krista's art and I darn near swoon every time she adds images to her store!

When I saw today's Inspiration Challenge, I trolled through the Blue Carrot site and found inspiration in some Vintage Ephemera. The image on the hair net package is lovely, and inspired my card. My sentiment is from the WordArt of Create with tlc.

Isn't she simply divine?!!! I used the colours from the shirt and the lightest green of the skirt to polka dot 'sparkle' her skirt tulle.

Now, one of my latest favourite things to do is paint with glimmer mist. The sparkle is so fine that it is super hard to photograph, but the effect is spectacular!!! I used the following Fireworks Mists; Dandelion on her hair, New Sprout on her skirt, Cantaloupe on the balloon, tulle and ribbon.

I used the following copics; Y000/00/11/21/23/32, YG0000/91/93/97, B93/95, W00/0/1/2, E0000/000/00/02/07/09/11/31/71/95/97/99

Have a happy weekend, all!
