Do Over!

Whereas I was really quite happy with the way that the porcelain roses came out (see post below), I was not happy with the way the two Bombshell ladies (Rose & Señora Muerta) looked on the earring holder/frame. So, I pulled them off the frame, set them aside for a rainy day, and added two more ornate flourishes to either side of the frame. I'm currently contemplating adding other elements to it. But, I also changed it up by adding more foam tape to the reverse of the frame so that earrings will really hang smoothly. So, I'll re-photograph the earring frame when I'm happy with it.

Well today was, in fact, rainy, so I got out Card Positioning System's Sketch #252 and had at it.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on it (that I flipped to work with the image):

The card features Rose from Bombshell Stamps' Rose's Portrait set (also carried by Simon Says Stamp's store), which was colored with Copic markers. I used a new-to-me color combo (E40 + R0000) on her skin and am quite happy with it. The patterned papers are by My Mind's Eye and are from the Lost & Found, Madison Avenue 6x6 pad. I used Distress Ink (limited edition red) to edge all the layers. Retrospectively, I wish I hadn't used the corner rounder on all the corners, like the sketch. Oh well. This time, done really is done and there will be no do-overs. :D

Thanks for visiting today.

I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
Card Positioning System #252
Outlawz Copic/Pro-Marker Friday "Girls Only" challenge
Simon Says Stamp Challenge "Anything Goes"
