Anne with an "e"
I played around a little with trying to figure out how to do the folds of her dress. The first attempt went into the garbage can and this one is . . .eh? I'll definitely have to practice some more. :-)
I did tons of distressing on the K and Company Julianne papers I used for this card. One of my coloring heroes, Annika, did a card in the last week or so with microbeads on it and I thought it looked so cool so I added some to the corners. Another coloring genius is Dorcas. She colors with Prismas (something I tried yesterday with mixed results) and she adds a little blue around her images for the background and I think it looks so good, so I used some chalk to add the blue "sky" behind Anne and the grass too.
As usual, the camera did not capture all the colors just right. Those brads have a really pretty olive colored blingy stone in the middle that matches the papers perfectly. Lots of machine stitching and--there she is! Carrots in all her glory! :-) Hope you like her.
