Vintage and Bling

Vintage and Bling - This week at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a color challenge for you this week. We are sponsored by Stamping All Day.

Here is the color chart for this challenge. I like all the neutrals with the pink.

My designer paper is Prima's London Market. The paper was distressed with Tea Dye distress inks.

My image is Crafts and Me and I colored it with Copics. I am disappointed with my close up photo of the image. The light really bleached the colors. You can see from the other photos, the difference in the colors.

I am thrilled with my skin tone. I have been trying to color Ethnic skin without much success and I love how it came out.

I used some tattered ribbon rose and added some Victorian Velvet to it. 

I also used a gemstone swirl. I cut it to make it the size that I wanted.

I also used some lace and seem binding, that was weaved in a gemstone slider.
