Easter Bonnet

This gal - a stamp from Lost Coast Designs - is ready for the Easter parade. I stamped her in Versafine Onyx Black and then clear embossed before painting in with felt pens.

The frame is a Spellbinders die cut that I sponged with purple ink. For the portrait background, I used the Dotted Harlequin Background from Quietfire Design and left the center lighter to create a bit of backlighting for the portrait. The mustard cardstock was stamped all over with Stampin' Up!'s paisley background.

I really like Swarovski crystals and the two used here add a nice subtle touch of bling. In real life they catch the light.
