Brittany, a sweet flapper

One of our Craftitude DT members was unable to complete her card for this challenge so I seized the opportunity to play with another artbymiran image for our current challenge, Anything Goes or Add a brad/eyelet. This little sweetie is called Brittany 1920s Flapper and, of course, I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils. I fussy cut her leaving a narrow white border and then matted her in black.. A black gem was placed in the center of her headband flower and Black Diamond Stickles were added to her sash. A Clear Star Jelly Roll was used to dot around the flower and outline the sash. Her pearls were dotted with white Scribbles paint.

The card is a step card and the panels were layered with scraps of black and white paper. A double row of gems was adhered across the top edge over a scallop border cut with an MFT die. Tiny star sequins were glued to the scallops. To me, this became the curtain of a stage and the gems, the lights.

The sentiment from Create With TLC refers to Brittany's dreams to make it big in the theatre :) A pretty paper flower was used to embellish the one side of the sentiment and two heart brads decorated the other.

That's it for Brittany and me today. We thank you for visiting and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
