What a great sketch to follow and I shall definately be using it again. I started by covering my base card with this gorgeous swirly paper and placing some pearls in the corners. Next I punched a strip of card for a lace effect and attached with d/s tape. Having stamped and coloured the image I layered it with Nesties. I then paper pieced her clothes and glittered her wings. I replaced the strip at the side of the sketch with a die cut scroll and added gem (diamonds) flowers. If you look closely you will see that I have pooped a little pearl seed bead into the centres of the gem flowers. A few more pearls added to the image finishes the card. I now think I should have left these last few pearls off, what do you think? Thanks for looking.
