INNER BEAUTY {ABM Through the Craftroom Door}

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran featuring in 'Through the Craftroom Door' Magazine}
  
Art by Miran is sponsoring Through the Craftroom Door Magazine and are offering two new beautiful images.  The design team had the wonderful opportunity of choosing one of the images to have fun with.  I chose this adorable little girl all dressed up in her chic little polka dot dress. 

I have coloured her with Copic Markers.  The little flowers have been created with a punch and the flourishes were stamped with Chiswick Acrylic Stamps. The buttons and ribbon are from my stash. The design papers are from BasicGrey and We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}

The folded circle embellishments have been created with circle punches and my tutorial for them has been published in the latest Through The Craft Room Door Magazine

Also visit Art by Miran's challenge blog where bi weekly challenges are hosted.  The theme is always Anything Goes as long as there is a hand coloured image on your creation. So hop on over here to have a look at their current challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, for some more inspiration.



I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
Thanks again for your lovely visits here.
