Every time I thnk of portraits I think of old ones that may have been found in someone's attic. This is the thought as I made my card. I took the designer paper and did a little Cuttlebug Highlighting on it in gold ink. It blended in perfectly with the paper, but gave it a little more dimension. The image was distressed and torn a little to give that antique portrait appearance. I finished the card off with a lace ribbon.
BarbaraFor my portrait image I chose Marie Antoinette from Stampsmith. Isn't she regal looking? I stamped her on glossy cardstock. (Sometimes the glossy affects the scan with a checked look, but she looks like a photo in real life.) Behind Marie is a vellum doily cut using a Cherry Lynn die. The background is paper which is embossed with glitter flowers. To finish off the card I added a bling fleur de lis made from pearls (Prima)
For my Portraits and; People Challenge piece I grabbed a favorite Stampsmith stamp -- an image of Diana Ross & the Supremes. Stampsmith images are mostly gorgeous photographic images. They have a lot of movie stars and famous musicians in addition to many beautiful vintage images. So here are the original "dream girls." Colored with markers and enhanced with colored pencils, I cut out my image and placed it on designer paper. I added the hearts (stamp is by Hero Arts), some flowers, lace and shiny, sequin-y stickers. I hope you'll join the fun creating art involving people or animals.
