Dark Angel

I fell in love with this image when I first saw her. Only now am I getting round to colouring and mounting to a card. Tut tut me. The push I needed was the new challenge blog that is Chromatic Craze. An unusual choice of colours but they work so well together.

The image, well that is Dark Angel Sauvage by Rick St Dennis.

A joy to colour.
The pink card stock behind her has been stamped with several sizes of feathers, a stamp set by Sheena Douglas. The sentiment is from the same set. Aly's Inky Fingers supplied the little watch stamp.

The main DP is from the DCWV Heritage collection. MS punched pink paper mounted onto deep pink  Some satin ribbon, some lace and some fibres as well as this lovely purple feather.

The card layout itself is inspired by the sketch over at the "Designed To Color" challenge blog.

A few pearls and finished.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at
