Well, OK, so she's got a red/orange/neony-mix-of-the-two/could-it-be-any-brighter cool jacket on (remember when we used to call 'em "blazers"? I worked for EDS for many a year if that tells you anything...) Can't miss that. Wanna know what caught my eye next? Her 'do. Windblown-ish. And while my eye was up there I caught the sunglasses. And then I noticed the cool pink wall behind her. Done with lighting I suppose. I done mine with watered down Distress inks on my craft mat. And squishes.
Believe it or not, the first piece of scrap I pulled out of my pile to pink up, was this wonky shaped piece. And I thought of the hair. Ping. No trimming here. And I have this amazing corally red CS from Amuse that I was lucky to win over at CASual Fridays last year (it was part of a special pack in honor of breast cancer month.) It is dead on for that jacket. Um, blazer.
A couple die cut branches and birdie from WPlus9 Folk Art Florals (still have to get myself the Fresh Cut Florals - anyone know where to get it in Europe?) with a couple branches stamped in gray too and voila. No wing on birdie as a nod to those sunglasses, BTW. No sentiment cuz this is to be a thank you notecard for Oma who sent us home with all kinds of goodies when DD and I visited her last week. Aren't Omas fabby?
Thanks for looking and hey, I made the deadline ;)))
