Spots and Stripes

Either or both. I chose both. For the Delicious Doodles challenge this week that is.
I'm back at work tomorrow so might not have much time before next friday so hoping the light on this is ok.

Spots and stripes were my choice. Well they were on the image so went with that.
The image is "Winter's Wonder" from Teri's own fab collection.

Coloured with watercolour pencils with a bit of ink distressing with "barndoor" DI to highlight. The sentiment is from TLC.
This being in PNG format, allowed the placement before printing. The image was layered onto some swirl embossed black CS to match the swirls in the dress. This in turn was layered onto some red CS that I put strips of narrow DS tape on and rubbed fine black glitter on. Then onto the dotty paper. then the plain red paper. Where the two joined, more DS tape and more glitter.
More swirls, this time with tiny black gems and a little posy of red and black roses in the corner.
Then onto a black CS base.

I am entering this into the challenge over at Delicious Doodles challenges - Spots and/or Stripes
Digi Doodle Shops Best challenge - Swirls. There are swirls on the image, on the backing card and mini gem ones
