Rose Lady

One of the lists I am on has started a new thing called Wednesday Challenge. This is good for me as I imagine the images will get me to step out of my comfort zone a bit and try some new things!

The first image shared was that of the Rose Lady you see here :) I printed her on regular copier paper on a laser printer. I then cut her out a little smaller than card front size to allow for some layering later. I used a scrap of mauve colored sheer ribbon I had in my stash and tied it in a small knot at the top with the ends cut at an angle and resting upwards. I had just bought these really cool sticker drops from the Oriental Trading Co. and one said Bundle Up which fit here perfectly. Since the sticker was clear and white it was hard to see on the white background so I put it onto a piece of mauve colored textured paper from Hollo's Papercraft Store in Brunswick, OH, then cut around it again to keep the oval shape. I glued it onto the top of the ribbon right under the knot. Then I layered this all onto more of that pretty mauve colored textured paper. Then I mounted it onto some brown leather looking cs also from Hollo's.

I am pleased with how it came out - I think maybe I should of edged the white paper with some brown ink to give it a little more definition maybe but live and learn as they say! :)

later...........
