We’ll have our first draw upon reaching 600.At this moment in time we’re up to 544.So why not pop over to Digi Doodle Shop Challenges and become a follower!

For my card I’ve used the elegant 1930’s Fashion image from Digi Doodle Shop.Yeah I know the title of my post refers to the age rather than the era but when your eyelids are droopin’ and your head’s crashing onto the keyboard and it’s the only thing you can think of  you kinda have to go with it!!Anyway,I’ve coloured her with ProMarkers and emulated the style of the fashion posters of that time ( or as close as I can get it!).I found it a challenge to let the shading be liney- is that a word?My style is usually a lot more scribbly and any harsh lines are blended out.I used a Marianne Design Twirly Stencil 2 that I bought back in the Summer ,along with a lovely pricking tool,and never got round to using.The cream piece of card behind her was already debossed with the pattern so I just pierced it.I just had to add a big bow with this gorgeous organza ribbon to complete the look.

    Love how the swirls in your piercing pattern pick up the swirls in the DP. Color scheme really compliments the sophisticated lady. Linda
