Elaina is one of Stampotique's March's new release stamps, which are all terrific. You should check them out. 

Elaina was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. I think that Elaina looks like a confident woman, strutting proudly, so I gave her a sidewalk to walk upon. 

Elaina's shirt reminded me that I had some very old patterned paper that had some xes on them. I was delighted to put my hands on old 8x8 pad by Cosmo Cricket almost immediately. Gosh! I love when I remember stuff! I colored Elaina to match the patterned paper and think that the pink hair suits her! 

The image panel was matted with the solid pink cardstock from the pad and other papers from it were layered. I used my Ticket Tag Duo Corner punch (Tonic studios) to punch the top edges of the patterned paper, matted the patterned paper with white cardstock, which was also punched. 

I thought that the just keep on keeping on" sentiment was perfect for the image, so I stamped it onto a strip of leftover patterned paper from the same pad and adhered it as shown.

Since I missed the ribbon/lace challenge, I decided to add a scrap of lace over the seam between the patterned papers and used my Mini Attacher to secure the lace in place (That rhymes!). The image panel was popped up over the patterned paper and lace using dimensional foam adhesives. A hole was punched at the top of the tag and ribbon was added to finish the tag.

Thanks for visiting today!
