Southern Girls - Jewelry Recycling

WooHoo!!! Are you all set for my first DT card for the Southern Girls Challenge Blog? Here it is!!! I've been on a really rich color kick lately. I made this card to coordinate with the Dragon Card I made a few weeks ago. Not sure why, it just kinda felt right. The piece of recycled jewelry I used for this challenge was the chain from an old necklace I found, belonging to my hubby. I swear he is going to disown me if I don't stop raiding his stuff. First it was his toolbox, then his tackle box (which he doesn't know about yet so I hope he doesn't read this *heehee*) and now his jewelry.......

The image I used on this card is called "Princess Shona" from Digital Delights who is the sponsor for Southern Girls - Recycled Jewelry Challenge. I've seen this image a few times while blog hopping and she was always done in light colors. I wanted to see what she would look like in deep rich colors. I really like how it turned out. The ribbon is airbrushed with my copic marker R89 cause it was more purple than burgundy and stuck out like a sore thumb. I gave it a few squirts with the ole R89 and presto, it matched beautifully. Ahhh....I love my airbrush.

So as they say "Waste not, want not". Start digging through that old jewelry you don't use anymore, make a paper project and then head on over to the Southern Girls Challenge. We would love to see what you can come up with. :)

Copics used:
Dress & hat: YG99, YG95, R89, R85, R83
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Eyes: B01, B000
Hair: E25, E35, E31, E53
