Amore Debutante

This week Makeesha has set another great sketch challenge.  You can play along here

I have chosen to make a card for my daughter, who is doing her deb ball next week.  Here is my (pink & sparkly) creation:-

The image is a digital stamp by the extremely talented Michelle Perkett.  It is called "Amore Fairy".  With Michelle's permission, I have used the very beautiful Amore without her wings *waving Michelle :)*. 

Amore has been printed by laser on watercolour paper & coloured with stamp pad inks & an aquapainter.  Her gown has been highlighted with Dazzling Diamonds & she has glitter pen highlights in the roses (sorry, I didn't quite catch that in the photos - might take another close-up shot later.)  Amore has been popped up on dimensionals.

Okay, here she is looking way more sparkly, but the colour is off.

I have also added Dazzling Diamonds to the word "happiness" to highlight it.

Thanks Keesh & Michelle. :)

Edited to add:

Thanks Keesh for the HM!  :)
