Ooh La La! Moulin Rouge

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  It's my turn to give some inspiration on the Rick St Dennis Sparkle and Glitter Blog.  I'm loving all of the opulent ladies Rick has been drawing and couldn't resist the fabulous Moulin Rouge available HERE on Zibbet.  I dare say she's a naughty one, or at best a grand couqette.  Just look at her dripping in fur and feathers and jewels.  Did she come by them honestly? Highly unlikely, I'd say.  This is Paris in it's heyday, la belle epoch, and I've embellished the card as lavishly as the times.  I've used digital paper from Artful Touch and chose the gorgeous Royal Blue and Gold Damask pack that matched the colors I'd used on the image.  I framed the image with my Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals and added feathers and pearl flourishes on either side. The sentiment is computer generated and cut with one of the Spellbinders Fancy Labels with a few gems added for good measure.

Here's a closeup of the beautiful image.  She's colored with Copics with additional shading from Prismacolor pencils. Lots of opportunity for practice here.  Just look at her hair and fur and amazing plumage on that fabulous hat. There are over 1000 images in Rick's Zibbet shop and for immediate download, he's on Etsy, as well.
