Scrap The Girls - May Challenge

Hi Ladies,

When I saw this month's challenge at Scrap The Girls, I knew it would be perfect for pics I have from Brittany's Year 12 Formal.

The criteria for this challenge was to use the quote:
"A smile is the best makeup a girl can wear"
I silhouetted the photo of Brittany in her gown and hand wrote the quote around her face.  I am really enjoying playing around with the Viva Decor inka gold pastes which have a beautiful metallic shimmer.  I used the Lava Red Inka Gold which I mixed with some extra fine glitter before applying over a Prima mask.  A touch of the Silver Inka Gold was used to colour the butterfly and doily filigree charms as well as the metal button and then a little of the Rose Pink to highlight the tips of the butterfly charm. Nicole from Craft Queen has some colours available at her store.  Click HERE for the link.

The gorgeous handmade flower was made by Monica Brady and can be purchased from her store The Trinket Track.  The butterfly charm, and metal button also come from her fab store.  Check out the link HERE.

Materials Used:  Prima and Kaisercraft pp's, paper doily, Craft Queen pink washi tape, rhinestone brad, Lava Red, Silver, Rose Pink Viva Decor Inka Gold, Prima mask, The Trinket Track butterfly charm, handmade satin flower, metal button, Cheery Lynn doily die, recycled rhinestone necklace, Kaisercraft bling, D-Lish filigree doily charms, Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, Stampendous extra fine glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
