MMSC#51 Audrey Hepburn Accessories

This weeks card uses the hat image from Dragonflies and Sunflowers found here. The shoe image I received from Susie at Die Cut Dreams. The tube of lipstick is from a coloring book! I got the idea for this card from watching old black and white movies which I adore. I was thinking of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman. The fashions make me absolutely swoon in their movies. The brooch that Ingrid Bergman wears in Casablanca has me mesmerized.

This card was sponged with Rangers Tea Dye Ink. I used red chalk for the flowers, hat band, and lipstick. There are gold brads used on the corners. I used a lot of diamond stickles that does not show up in my photos, but boy IRL it has the most awesome cast on top of that tea dye ink. I wish you could see it. I put some real feathers on my hat too. I made the flowers you see here on the hat and shoes. They are made with tissue paper and sponged and stickled. My tutorial or these flower is here. The envelope is a 6 x 6 and can be found at Priscillastyles Store.

Here is the inside of my card. I love these shoes...I need a pair...LOL Another person who has some awesome fashion is accessories is Doris Day. If you have ever watched "Pillow Talk" you know what I am talking about. So go grab your remote control and turn on AMC or Turner Classic Movies and see some of these amazing fashions. Hope you can join us in the challenge this week. I love to visit and see your creations.
