Paper Makeup #138 - for a special lady / to someone special

Monday April 28, 2014
 
 

This is the card I made using Moody for Holly image  but who said it has to be a Christmas card. It's all on how you color the image so this special lady is great for mothers day to that special lady that means a lot to you but maybe not your birth mother... It's really for any special lady.  I used a SU flower set doodle this and
sentiment from SU botanical. I cut a piece of black to pop the image. I colored the image so it looked more like pretty purple flowers in her hair (not holly)  I took some scraps of embroidery thread and ran it through some mate medium to stiffen it and laid it behind the black piece to give it some added texture. I lightly colored the flowers with copics and then did the image bright. I love how it came out. Hope it encourages you to play along.

Beautiful, Billie! I love that you used a Christmas image, colored it non-Christmas and added the kinds of bg and embellishes to make it universal! Wonderful card!
