Calendar Girl!!

Oh I had such fun with this using the fabulous digital image from Dr Digi
I embossed an A4 sheet of green paper with the fab Sheena Douglas Sunglasses embossing folder and went over it all with TH Peacock Feathers distress ink. The difference is quite subtle but you can see from the pic below how it lifts the embossing.
 I did the same on another smaller bit of card, cut out the glasses and went over with treasure gold and a white pen. I printed the image and used a mixture of Dylusions sprays as watercolours along with my old set. Used a Sakura clear glaze pen on the glasses, cocktail glass and jug in the image. I then watercoloured another piece of card and made up the works with a Papermania alphabet stamp set. I went around the edges of the letters with a micron pen, a white chalk pencil and a white sakura pen. I used dies to cut both images and stuck them together on to the background card and added the glasses, the little embellies and a calendar. I used a strip of sequins for the hanger as I never know what to do with them and the colour went ok!
Have fun crafting. Suz xxx
