Ballet Princess

A beautiful Tuesday to you all.  It is such a wonderful day here in Chicago.  Today, my stitches come out and I'm excited about it because it means I'm done with the first step of the 1st phase. Still a long way to go but I'm inching my way there :)

Have you had a a song stuck in your head and you just can't stop singing it? How about a scene or a picture? After I can across  the Colour Create Challenge Blog, I just can get the inspiration photo out of my head.  This is my 2nd entry. The color combo is 

Other Challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes 

 I went thru all my stash and I did find a couple of things I can use for this challenge. And this is what I came up with!

 All the flowers are from Wild Ortchid Crafts.
Ribbons, charms, lace, doily, strings from my stash.

 I used the Magnolia Doohickey: Heart Swirl for the ballet shoes. Yes, I turned the other one over!

 I colored Tilda using Copics for my base ( E000, V91, E23, G24) and  Albrecht Durer WC Pencils and Gamsol. Distress Inks for background shadow: Milled Lavender.
I hope you like my project for today.  I sure enjoyed making this last night!
