Et voila!

I love it when a challenge really forces me to use my imagination, and this week, Daring Cardmakers has certainly done that for me with their ‘Marie Antoinette’ challenge.

I found an uncoloured paper doll on the internet and printed it off twice, once on white and once on patterned paper. I coloured in the skin, wig, ribbons etc with promarkers. I cut out the wig and dress and stuck them onto the body.

I made the background using ink and a text stamp. The peacock is a Hobby Art stamp, the corner is a Sizzlit and the ‘Merci’ is a sticker which I stuck onto an embossed oval.

I resisted the temptation to add cakes/ guillotines!
