BEAUTY {Fresh Brewed Designs Favourites Challenge}

Favourites Challenge
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

A lovely challenge is currently running over at Fresh Brewed Designs with the theme FAVOURITES.  I have used this beautifully elegant image of a dancer called LOVELY DANCER, which you can purchase here. Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.


The images have been paper pieced and coloured with Copics.  The design papers and brads are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The folded embellishments have been created with scallop square punches.



I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
