Graph'It Marker Challenge - Frills and Fancy!

Morning. It's a quickie from me today. This weeks challenge over on the Graph'It Marker Blog is Frills & Fancy. Now I'm not sure why, but this challenge threw me! I think I possibly over thought it and as a result left myself very little time to actually make a project!

I was going to make something using lots of ribbon and lace but decided as it was a colouring challenge I'd try and make my image the "frills and fancy", so this is what I ended up doing....

I printed the image onto Ultimate Graphic paper and then coloured it with Graph'It markers. I added some sparkle to the choker and hemline using the Shake'It Silver Glitter Pen. To make the sparkle subtle I dabbed at it with my finger.

The card base was covered with DP's before adding some web lace and grosgrain ribbon. The image was cut out and then mounted onto designer papers. I then sprinkled some silver embossing powder around the edge to add some texture and interest and attached a piece of lace to the base of the image before attaching to the card.

To finish I added some die cut foliage, bats and punched flowers all of which were coloured with my Graph'It markers.

I really hope that you can join the challenge this time. Remember you have two weeks to submit a project and you don't even need to use Graph'It markers, simply follow the theme.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a lovely weekend.
