KKS Eliza


Eliza is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and this is my first time inking her up.  My Fair Lady is one of my all-time favorite movies and it's based on the play Pygmalion.  I couldn't imagine using this image without somehow also using black cardstock.  I don't use a lot of black on my cards (except for Halloween) so this was kind of fun.  I'm not sure pink was the best accent color but I seem to be using a lot of it lately. 

I stamped Eliza with Memento ink and colored her with copics.  The centers of the MFT layered roses are tiny rolled roses from IO's Spiral Flowers die.  I cut the Memory Box butterflies from black cardstock and covered them in platinum stickles for a touch of old-world glamor.  I used Wink of Stella in clear on the umbrella and the feather in her hat.  I added lines of clear stickles on the white stripes on her hat, on the dots of the border die and on the white flowers on the vine.  The tiny rolled roses also have dots of clear stickles in their centers.
