Oh my, what a fun challenge...my idea came to me instantly...the details didn't, however, I think I filled all the non requirements! I've been waiting a long time to use lovely Mona and today she is the star of the show. My base is from Basic Grey, Romani Caravan...you gotta love an orange as neat as this one! more Basic Grey follows Swiss Dot in the Vagabond group. I stamped BLUE (Purple Onion Stanyan large alpha) in Adirondack denim onto white gp cs pinked the edges and sponged a bit of color to tone down the white. I used chalk inks for this. My Mona is matted on Hero Arts polka dot swatch (Archival black). She has a very proper frame which is on the frame cube from BLine Designs. I stamped the frame onto a piece of the Periphery Syrah with Versamark and embossed in detail silver. The metal clip and metal no.4 are from Making Memories. I distressed and painted both pieces. The fabulous YOU is Technique Tuesday's Calamity Jane Capital Letters, they are stamped with Color Box peacock gold onto MM noteworthy spiral paper. I couldn't resist a tiny message in the bottom corner...hope you find something today that makes you...
Thanks very much for looking and...giggling!
