Hi there 🙂 I’m a little in shock that I made this card up and didn’t get it on here RIGHT AWAY!!! I’m so proud of it 🙂 Every year, I have a standing order for a Day of the Dead card for a friend’s sister. I knew that this year’s card would feature Day of the Dead Marie, by Mitzi, at Aurora Wings. This was a challenging image to color up, as it is so detailed. I got my head into the “I can do this” state, and grabbed my SN and Copic markers and went to work….I seriously don’t think I took a breath for long periods of time!! When I was done, I added some fine detail with a Pigma Micron pen, and inked the edges with Distress Ink. With such an intricate image, I hate to start getting all fussy with embellishments and papers, so I opted for a very pale mauve CS, die cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die in opposite corners, then layered over a black CS. Some black lace, a little strip of ribbon and tiny bow, and a few rhinestones for embellishments complimented the gorgeous image without overpowering it.
I’d like to enter this in the following:

As You Like It Challenges – Favorite Die… this corner die!! Why? It adds so much interest to the background of the card, and it’s lacy design is so pretty 🙂
