Lady Kathleen

We have another challenge by Team A starting today over at Through the Craftroom Door. This week, our sponsor is our very own Sandi Huggett of Sandi's Samples.

I chose 60-Lady Kathleen for my inspiration card. Isn't she lovely? She reminds me of my mother. She used to always wear hats like this. The card is a cut file from Silhouette Online. I used a pale purple for the base of the card, and a darker purple for the inset. I printed the image on white card stock and colored it with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (dress - IB1, IB2, IB3, HB1, PL2, PL3; face - FS1, IB2, DR2; hair - CT2, CT4; flowers - HB1, HB2; leaves - JG2; feathers - IB1, IB2, IB3). I used an EK Success rounded corner punch and layered it on matching blue card stock. I added purple crystals on the dress and hat and purple pearls on the card for added bling!
