Maid of the Riverbank

Hiya folks!

What a yummy day it has become. After a grey start the sun is now out and blazing away. And here I am stuck indoors on this compy - duh. Where are my priorities?? lol.

Anyroadup, I have a make for you - woooohoooo!!

I have used my brand new image 'Maid of the Riverbank' for this card front today.
I have only done a front, kind of like a full sized topper if you will. I'm figuring that folks may want to buy a front ready made to stick to a card of their own. What do you reckon? Is there a market for these things?

 Anyway, I have coloured with watercolour pencils as is my usual thing, scanned, printed and layered. Matted with a framabilities die onto dotty dp printed from the compy, then matted onto orange card and blue bazzil. The flowers and leaves are made using punched shapes from the same card, then adding inky edges and stickles. I added some pale green pearly drops to their centres and to the two uncovered corners. Last thing was to add some blingy gems to the frame.

Oh, I had better just mention that there are TEN DAYS LEFT in the Delicious Doodles DT Call, so still plenty of time to get your applications in folks!!

Right, now to find me some challenges to enter this into, ttfn folks!!

She's stunning Teri, love the contrasting blues and oranges, I used Teals and Oranges on my last DD card!

Personally I prefer to colour my own images but I'm sure there would be a market for pre coloured images, I've seen them offered on some sites.

This is lovely, but I wouldn't describe it as a topper, it's really a completed piece of art (That's purely my opinion though)
