Morning everyone! It's Friday again yay! Today I'm sharing a card I was asked to make by a friend at work for her Mum. The brief I had to work from was that she liked Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, that she loved fashion and that her favourite colours were black orange and green.
I must admit that I skipped the green as trying to put those 3 colours together really wasn't working for me on a card.
Anyway I chose the fabulous Uptown Girls Audrey Loves Her Make-Up from Stampin' Bella, perfect to fit the Audrey Hepburn part I thought. I actually used Halloween papers (just to show they're versatile lol) for the black and orange as they were the only papers I had with that colour combo. these are from the Authentique 6 x 6 'Spirited' pad and I can't find them in the store now, but you could use something like Thrilling to a similar effect, I just avoided the more Halloween prints with bats and spiders.
I coloured her with my Copics this time as I thought they suited the strong colour scheme a bit better. Man was I rusty lol! I don't think I did a bad job in the end though and I finished her dress off with some polka dots with my white Posca pen.
For the fashion part I decided to include an Eiffel Tower dies (Paris is the heart of fashion right?) and a dress form.
My friend loved it and I must admit that after struggling a bit with it I really love the way it turned out.

Well that's all from me today, but I'll be here at the weekend with another giveaway :) xx
