Hiya peeps.  Another hot Wednesday here and time for another I ♥ PROMARKER challenge.  #177 this week and it's again everybody's fave - Anything Goes.   The sponsor is The Stamp Fairy with a $10 spend for our winner.  I'm trying to use more of my proper stamps instead of digi-images all the time, so I got them out again this week.

This gorgeous lady is from a Kanban stamp set called 'Moulin Divas' and my papers are MME 'Madison Avenue'.  I used a Joycrafts die on the left (didn't need it all, so sliced it) and a nestie for the sentiment shape then I finished the card off with a strip of lace and a few pearls.

I had a bit of trouble figuring out how to colour this image as I wanted a naked back.  The lace up panel is flesh coloured but the more I looked at her back and shoulders, I couldn't work out how it could possibly not be fabric.  Those dang straps confuddled me, lol.  Anyway, I decided to give it a sort of sheer fabric look, so I hope that's worked.  I have to say though, I'm proper envious of her waistline, ha ha.
 (editing:  Have just discovered on Emma's Cards how to get a naked back, lol.  One of the DT has used this stamp).

Well I think you figured out how to color it just right. It would have confused me too, but it sure is a beautiful stamp. Perfect papers with the French theme to carry the image through. Lovely Lorraine. Hugs!
