I'm back again with another of the new vintage images from Pink Gem, this one's called Harriet and you'll find her here.  To say I've fallen in love with these digis is an understatement, the others are bound to be making an appearance soon too!
She's been coloured with my usual Promarkers in warm colours to match these gorgeous Prima Sunrise Sunset papers, to which I've added kraft and some pleated ribbon tape from the same range, the pleats held in place with tiny brads. I distressed all the edges for a shabby look. For the faux stitching, I made hole with a pokey tool and joined them up with a dark brown pen.
After colouring the image, I added Glamour Dust to the hair accessory and collar and used Worn Lipstick Distress Stickles round the edges of the topper.  While the Distress Stickles was still wet, I sprinkled on some micro beads for even more texture.
The larger flowers were made with Woodware punches, with dew drops for centres and the tiny ones were made with an Xcut punch with pearl centres.  To finish off, I added a scattering of assorted pearls, gold gems and two, floss threaded buttons.
