Good morning lovely bloggers!
Don't you just love this Mo Manning image
I think the card will be perfect for my
eldest Granddaughter's 18th birthday in a couple of weeks, but right now it's my DT card for the DU2DS Friday Challenge  - this fortnight we are working with a fab sketch by Donna. Hope you will join in the fun - full details can be found by clicking the link above. I am always in awe of the huge amount of entries each fortnight - all of them fabulous.
I am also entering the card into this week's Paperplay Challenge , which is "Anything Goes"
The image has been coloured with H2O's and watercolour pencils, and just a small amount of Copics, mainly under the feet. 
Edges inked with Old Paper Distress Ink and Wisteria ColorBox Chalk Ink.
The purple layers are SU cardstock.
Purple patterned BP - Bo Bunny.
Green swirls paper - "Happy-go-Lucky" digi download from Shabby Princess.
Black lace - a Prima clear stamp.
Black textured paper ribbon from goodness knows where!Four holes were punched in the ribbon, then small metal washers glued over the holes (washers from DIY shop).
Sentiment - computer generated.
Feather from stash.
Have a fabulous weekend - love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Oh my, I love her purple eyeshadow!
Not using copics has given your colouring lots of texture and the skirt is brilliant with loads of attitude in them boots as well.
Love the lighting on the tights.
Using the washers is inspired!
But Sylvia, I see no glamour dust??!!
