One of a kind...


Today, I am sharing with you a very colorful, busy card which was inspired by the image itself.  I picked this cutie up from Saturated Canary.  I love how her images seem to be ethereal.  This particular image "Janessa" who I think is a Steampunk Hottie; however when I saw her she reminded me of a Fashionista.  I loved the layers of her skirt (I want this skirt) and her stylish hair cut reminded me of a runway diva if ever I saw one. lol  Anyway you interpret her, she is a BLAST to color up and definitely "one of a kind."

Here's my card...

I didn't use dp to determine my color scheme this time.  I just stuck my toes in the water and went for it.  I knew that I wanted her outfit to be bold, bright and yet very very sassy.  I started rummage through my Copics and dug out Y21 and Y23 (very similar in color) and then added some other yummy reds, oranges and BGs.  I used SU tag punch and CTMH sentiment "one of a kind," because truly it was a good fit.  I finished coloring her and then found dp and cardstock to compliment it all.  I added some twine, buttons and Stickles on the bottom of her skirt to finish it all off.  I think she is ready for the catwalk.  I know I would definitely sport this outfit. 

Thank you for looking and commenting!
