Cameo Style Topper


Hi folks.

I have a triple whammy today.

First up this is going into the Polka Doodles challenge, which is to NOT make a card - difficult I know, but that's the idea behind challenges. I made a Topper instead.

Next, I followed the sketch at Midnight Madness - they do have some fabby giveaways there!

Then we have Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday challenge, where they have a recipe to follow. 3 papers, any image, 1 ribbon or lace.

The papers are: the backing, the brown oblong frame bit, and the pink oval frame and some flowers. I used some lace to the left to fit in with the sketch, rather than use a bow elsewhere. The image is from Digital Ink Co, 'Lady in a Bonnet', designed by Julie at Jules Junk. I coloured her with watercolour pencils.
