Totally love her outfit!!

Paula said...

The way your colouring of ehr picks up the blue-grey tones in the paper is brilliant & you certainly achieved the whole vintage look with this. Those pinks & greens are just classic old floral motifs - the scipt panel is lovely too with the flourishes echoing the edge of your image panel. Love the way that rose patterned paper is peeking out behind the panel to reveal the rosehead with the floral decorations just above it really drawing the eye. Nice & different.

Hiya Tracy,

How are you?

Love this image,she is so hauntingly beautiful!
Love all the textures and colours & yet the image is so understated but matches & pops from the card.
A Great combination of dark & light, Modern & Steampunk (VINTAGE).

She does ring of a boutique girl, she is so unique in dress and expression.

Take care
Big Hugs
