You've Got Style, Champagne and Balloons!

I love this quirky image of the lady in her fur coat even though I'm not sure it's entirely flattering!

Champagne in one hand, balloons in the other - she's ready to party!

Starting from the bottom and working up, the layers in this card are:
Sweet Sugarplum, Very Vanilla, Powder Pink, Very Vanilla, Fresh Fig, Very Vanilla (square with an oval removed from centre), Sweet Sugarplum (inlaid into oval) 

The balloons are cut from Silver Foil and Copper Foil and embossed.  I tied some Black Metallic Thread around them and attached them to the hand via holes that I poked, before sticking to card front with glue dots.

The greeting is attached with a dimensional.

After heat embossing, I bleached the image prior to watercolouring it.

I stamped the image with Basic Black Archival ink and clear heat embossed it before attacking it with an old paintbrush and household bleach.

Once the bleach was dry, I watercoloured the image with Powder Pink, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and Daffodil Delight inks.  I added a wee bit of Chalk Marker to add some highlights to the trim on the coat and hat and then a tiny bit to highlight her skin and wished I hadn't!  Ah well!

Tip: When using framelits, I often cut them from the centre of small rectangles &
keep the negative shape for purposes such as this
