Victoria Attends a Dance

     Second post of the day but who could resist posting this one?  This sweet little lady is attending her first formal party and has just been asked to dance.  Doesn't she look shy?  She's drawn by Mi Ran of Artbymiran and I just fell in love when I saw her.

My sketch comes from Try Stampin' on Tuesday
and the colors are from The Outlawz
but the lavenders and purples in the dp and CS turned blue again.  :-(


     Victoria (the name of the image) was colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I used a second die to cut the frame.  The papers are from SU and I used a border punch to create the polka dots along the bottom border.  I added a bit of paper behind it to make the 'dots' look pink.  I used two ribbons, both from my stash, and the rose is from Recollections, colored with markers.  The satin flowers are made from ribbon and sewn together with a pearl in the center of each one.  I added two tiny feathers to her hair, right where feathers are drawn in the image.
