A Girl And Her Pearls

Welcome - I am so pleased to have you visit. 

I have had lots of fun in the studio these past few days - with lots of productive time, and hopefully, lots of blogging, depending on visitors and 
grand children :-).

I had great fun with this dress form image, and I also played with my
 Opalite interference inks.

I used the same technique on the sentiment panel.

The dress form was mounted on some dp from the Fairy Flora stack that I had embossed using the retro circles folder.

The final touch were the pearls!!  No self respecting girl would go out without her pearls.

I am linking this to:

This is a really interesting card...I like the black motives on the colour backgrounds, and the way the two sides different patterns contrast yet connect through their circular patterns.
