Lady Rose Dragon...

So the other day...I went hunting for a tutorial on how to color hair and stumbled upon this blog...My Cardz, My Passion with a step by step tutorial on what she does to color hair...so I wanted to give it a try. I also found this beautiful image there called: Lady Rose Dragon by *Princess Elemmiriel* and she's a free image to download. So I did that too. Here is what she looked like once I finished coloring her. I didn't realize how much coloring/ink it takes to make images come to life! I totally fell in love with this one. I added some pearl bling to her dress...so pretty in pink.
so with that...I thought I would use her for my next OCS. I am so happy that I am paired up with 1LuvnMama...she does such beautiful creations and she really inspires me to do better creations and that I need to learn how to color...lol! I hope she receives it in the mail before she sees my post! any whoo...I decided to do another double shaker. sorry if you are tired of seeing these...but I really loved making this one and I think that this is the best one I have made by far. I loved the B&W and I used this perfect pearls powder with a mist sprayer (from my BFF) for the flowers and butterfly. it really gives a shimmery look. here's what I finally came up with...
I hope my OCS partner will love it as much as I do. I am so proud of what I made. I used lots of pink bling, stickles, prima flowers, my SU corner and border punch, MS butterfly punch and lots of microbeads, beads & dew drops for my shaker. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me comments...it really does lift my spirits! Have a beautiful Tuesday and enjoy!
