Gypsy clip art card--Girls of the World: procrastination à la Allison :0)


I should be cleaning, but I'm craftin' and I blame it all on Allison, who as you all know (or should know, teehee) is always astoundingly inspiring. Since I'm a gypsy through my Hungarian heritage (and since I'm having my friend Kinkers over for girl fun with a tarot reading tonight) I just had to play with Allison's latest idea: fun with clipart using these sweet girls of the world images. Click to visit Allison's post with the link:


Charles says she looks just like me, if I was in anime.



Card details:


Image:
printed from computer on Naturals White c.s. Painted with Stamp'n'Write markers & aqua painter, detailed with white signo gel pen & silver zigpainty. Patterned paper is Basic Grey "Gyspsy" (how apropos, hmmm?) Layered with Really Rust & cool Cariibbean. Velvet Ribbon is retired SU, skiny satin ribbon is from Michaels (as are the little gems) The big beautiful gems were a prezzie from sweet Mary. Other accessories: SU's scallop punch & 1 3/8" circle punch, Sakura glitter pen clear, stickles (for the crystal ball.) Dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting. I see lots of crafting in your future my Darlinks!?! :0)
