Kick up your heels!!
Well, I love all things art deco and that includes flappers - this isn't quite a flapper but it's close and she IS adorable. This wonderful Magnolia image was sent to me by a fellow crafter and I do thank them. She's coloured using Pro Markers and the WONDERFUL Atyou Spica glitter pens. I've distressed the edges of the panels and also applied Distress Inks in Olive and Shabby Shutters, tied some raffia round the base panel and to tie two gorgeous glitter buttons together and there you have it. BTW the stripey backing panel is the reverse of the green panel and came from the pack of fab double sided papers from COSTCO at around 7p per sheet - you gotta get some if you have access to a Costco and they still have any left!!! For the insert I had a fab stamp which says "Kick up your heels" and also some great Hero Arts shoes which kind of says it all - making this a great feel good card - hope you like it and thanks for stopping by, I was feeling kind of out of sorts because normally I make sketchies on a Saturday but, having set this weeks mine was done a while ago!!! - but now I feel chirpier!
