I used the Leather and Lace digi from Delicious Doodle. I liked the look of this image and knew it would be fun to colour with one of my favourite colours, purple. I also took the name of the digi literally and knew I had some lace and leather embellishments.
I coloured the digi with my trusty Spectrum Noir pens trying to get a leather like look on the gloves and jacket. As the colours were quite dark I added glossy accents to the bow in her hair so it has a bit of dimension and shine to it.
I wrapped some black lace around a large piece of purple co-ordinations cardstock. I cut the lace with a rotary fabric cutter so got it perfectly straight and didn't stretch it. I then matted the image onto co-ordinations card stock in a purply/pink colour to lighten the card and make the picture stand out.
I made a bow from some of the lace and added this to the corner with a tag I had from Kanban, and then added a purple gem to give a bit of shine.
This isn't the type of card I would usually make as it's quite dark but I think it looks really good and am really pleased with how it's come out.
