The Crafters Cafe - blog hop - January Blues Challenge

Good morning,

Today blog is a hop..
Only my 2nd so a novice at setting it up.. hope this goes as it should!
 (my friend helped me set up the first one!)

I got the blues - 3 weeks since Santa was here,
2 weeks since we welcomed the New Year.
All the hype and excitement has gone,
are you feeling a bit down?

TCCB is having a blog hop with some great prizes...

My inspirational post for this blog uses a Flapper Girl image from Moonflower
The challenge theme is Male Card.. so to get this wonderful image male orientated I added a bit of a saucy sentiment!

Hair - Lyra dark grey, black hard
Skin - Lyra medium flesh, light flesh
Eyes - Lyra aquamarine
Dress/Hairband - Walnut Hollow Violet
Boa - medium grey

As my craft room is currently out of reach - I had to grab whatever I could find to work with this card.. (wasnt easy)
I found some nuetral backing paper.

Kept the card CAS by just layering up on black card, then doing a dashed outline to look like faux stitching.
I used my new Wink of Stellar clear sparkle to bling the jewels on her headband, necklace and skirt.

I hope this inspires you to pop over to the TCC challenge blog and share your projects.
