* Vera Lane Studio: Contessa Two

Hello again!

In my last post I explained that I couldn't choose which Contessa image to use for my DT day at Vera Lane Studio. So I made two cards.

Here is the second card I made:

She's such a quirky girl! Again I gave her some curly hair. I coloured Contessa with Copics and gave her white highlights. I teamed her with three houses from the Little Houses collage sheet  and a cloud from Fun Collage Sheet No 3. She also has a winged heart from the Love collage sheet which is available on request.  Contessa is popped up on foam pads for some dimension. The other elements are glued directly onto the  background.
The background is brayered Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron. I love pink and green together.  I added some text stamping in Black Soot and some black and white paint splatters. The edge of the background is edged with black archival ink.
This sentiment is cut it into strips, inked around the edges in black and glued it directly onto the background.

My first Contessa can be found here.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
