Lady in Blue

I created this card in blue with Artistic Outpost's set called Jane's Countryside.

I stamped "Jane" and colored her in hues of blue and blue-green using Copic markers. I forgot to take a photo of the marker colors or even make note of the numbers ( so sorry!).  I also used Spica Turquoise for accents on the hem of the dress and hat.The background behind her is the building from Jane's Countryside stamped with Stormy Sky Distress ink onto an aqua colored Bazzil paper.   I cut and embossed it with Spellbinders S5-019 Labels Eight.  I added color with Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress inks especially around the edges.
I cut the "frame" behind Jane with Spellbinders S4-294 Beaded Ovals out of navy Bazzil paper.  I rubbed some Faded Jeans ink over the embossed areas and added tiny turquoise gems.  It's layered over a "frame" cut with Spellbinders S4-113 Classic Scalloped Ovals SM #4 and Spellbinders S4-113 Classic Scalloped Ovals LG #5 out of white card stock.  I added color to the edges with Distress inks.  When I assembled the frame over the Labels Eight background, I added a piece of ribbon at the bottom. 
I stamped the verse with Denim ink on a scrap of card stock. Then I cut it out with one of Spellbinders S4-234 Ribbon Tag TRio Two. After I embossed it, I traced around the edges with a Copic marker.   I threaded the ribbon through it and added little pearls at each end.  I colored the Pearls with a Copic markers.
I popped up "Jane" and the tag with 3D Foam Squares.
The card itself is white card stock.  I added color to the front with Distress inks.  

Have a creative day!

A fabulous piece of (art)work! And to think you started with white cardstock. Love that Jane is popped up and partially outside the frame. Beautifully done.
