"Plain Jane"

Hi everyone....another little post from me today, can't believe 3 in one day....lol...it's been all go over the weekend....still 'hopping' around in my lovely air boot...1 week down, 3 to go!! Anyway I'm here to show you my take for the 'Plain Jane' Challenge over at The Stamping Chef's Facebook page. I so love all these fabulous images created by the equally fabulous and talented Tamara Van Wijk. Thank you so much Tamara for being so kind hearted by giving us the digi free to enter your challenge, you are a gem!

My Sample

Close Ups

For the backing, I have used Creata grey mirror card and sanded back to reveal silver underneath, topped it with Creata cloud like backing card. The digi I coloured using Promarkers, Azure, Soft Green, Bright Green, Antique Pink, Vanilla, Lemon, Almond and Blush. Because of her name 'Plain Jane', I thought she looked quite like one of the WW2 Airforce 'Pin-Ups' so based my project around that, using the cloud effect backing card and found a picture of a model Lancaster Bomber online to add as a topper. I printed her name on hammered card from my stash at cut out using Joy Craft cloud die....I finished off with flowers/leaves made from Creata mirror and backing card cut out again using Joy Craft dies, brads and gems!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and leaving such lovely comments!
