PUNKETTE PRUE - DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY

One of my favourite images that I drew for Digistamps 4 Joy is Punkette Prue, and I have created a card for a friend's daughter, who is turning 16 soon.  I know she doesn't follow my blog, so there is no danger of her seeing this card before her birthday!

I know her favourite colours are pink, purple, black and white so this is just for her! I attempted to make the tutu transparent and glittery and the fishnet stocking appear sheer.  The image is coloured using alcohol markers and highlights are done using a white gel pen.


The zebra striped diecut behind the image started life as black and white but to add a little funkiness I coloured it to match the image.  Little flower sequins are sewn on using transparent seed beads and the little roses are sewn on too.  I prefer sewing on my embellishments where I can as I know my stitching will seldom let me down. An offcut of braiding, some rhinestones and a silver ribbon make up the embellishments.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:


OLDIE BUT GOODIE, 'ANYTHING GOES' (all the embellishments on my card are well over 6 months old - call me Super-Hoarder!)
