Quickie post today. I'm entering the A Day For Daisies current challenge...which challenges us to ADD BLACK LACE...and I'm getting my entry in right under the wire! Just call me last-minute-Mabel.
I chose the lovely image of "Cat Hat" for the foundation. Since the image basically just ends at her waist...and since I didn't really want half a torso floating on my card (even if it is almost Halloween)...I decided to complete her (Frankenstein-style...since it is almost Halloween) with some Steam-Phunky Photoshop Magix. I opted for a Steampunk look (I call it Steamphunk), because A) I love Steampunk. And, B) I think it blends seamlessly with the original image...almost like it was made that way from square one!
I chose a pretty multi-colored paper for the bottom of the background and a black lace patterned paper for the upper background. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to color the lace paper to turn it tan color (it was white), then lightly inked the edges with a turquoise stamping ink. I added punched paper lace and some real lace too. And, of course, a touch of bling--'cuz ya just gotta have da bling.
