Brittany and Embellishments

May 2015 bring you many joys!!

This month's Challenge at CCC Digi Challenges is to use Digi and Embellishments, 
and our sponsor is 

I used the beautiful Brittany 1920's Flapper image, and coloured her with Prismacolor pencils.

I used perfect pearls on her necklace and the flower in her hair. 
Rhinestones, over ribbon, both straight and bowed, and placed on the patterned paper were the predominant embellishments.

A purple feather overlaid on the image feather. The Kindy Glitz shows here on her hair flower, but not so much on her frock.

The birthday sentiment was embossed in silver on the purple patterned paper, from a 'Rosie's' pad.

I mounted her over two layers of punched iridescent plastic waste, which made some unexpected (flower shaped) secondary patterns.
The final detail was the gorgeous Prima flower, which I mounted over a 'V' of ribbon.

Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed.
