Sweet, Chic and Glamorous!!

I wanted to make something even more special than the card with our new Marci Ballerina stamp from Marci Line, I wanted something more artsy!! I wanted to have a framed piece to display this uber adorable image, she so deserves it!!!

I went with a collage style using various elements from different companies.. I was amazed how they all went so well together!! To complement the color and the style of the elements, I colored Marci in sepia tones this time.

I really LOVE how this piece have turned out!! I have it displayed on the table in the living room right now, later I will hang it in my crafts room :-) I am not too happy with the pictures though.. I might just have to re-take them..

I used Bazzil cardstock for the photo mat. There are two embossed squares around the picture, I hope you can see it on the photos.. I made those with my Scor-Pal!!

Designer paper is from S.E.I Windsor collection called Wickham, the swirls on this paper are flocked!! So pretty in real life!!! Both the frame and the sentiment tag are from My Minds Eye. I punched the holes in the tag as it needed to be more airy :-) Leaf branch chipboard sticker is from Basic Grey Capella collection. Flourish die cut from Tim Holtz (finally I got my hands on this die, LOVE it!!!). Prima flower and filigree corner from Buttons Galore finish this piece of art :-)

As I mentioned, Marci was colored with Copics in sepia tones. I again gave her tutu a dimension by layering it. I will have a tutorial for you on how to make it within a few days :-)
