Ruby, Ruby , Ruby....



Morning all!

Hope you are all well this fine morning!  I have a 'Gorjuss' new image 'Ruby' to share with you that you can get right here at Quixotic Paperie. Isn't she lovely?

She is coloured with copics and I have used prisma pencils to create the background around her. The camera seems to have washed that out quite a lot. It is a little less subtle in real life!

The papers I have used are Echo Park 'For The Record'. I have punched out a few flowers above her swing and then added an big adhesive flourish to bling it up!

The black flowers are a first for me and are made out of metal.
I bought a black metal sheet as I was hoping to make some grungy stuff but instead I used it to make some pretty flowers! They are punched out and then run thorough a spotty embossing floder. I then sanded them down so you would see the silver coming though. Then the metal is such a doddle to shape and bend! A new thing to my reptoire that I love :)

Watch this space for more metal flowers ....

Now I love this girl so much that I decided to frame her! I made her into a piece of art that will match the card and hopefully make someone a lovely gift !
So here they are both together :) Sorry the frame is so blurry...makes it look arty though eh???


OK I will have this pair up for sale in my Etsy shop later today.

A wee heads up for tomorrow that you don't want to miss...there is going to be a fab blog hop and stamp release from Carmen Medillin. I will have a wee post for you tomorrow with all the details and info.

Have a great day!

I love the framed artwork - lovely with those flowers as a garland over the swing. The soft brown is such a lovely compliment to the red, white & black & I love the way that spotty paper oicks up on your dotty embossed metal flowers & the gem swirl not to mention the spots of her dress. Love the fact that the girl in the picture has white spots to mimic the patterned paper in the card but the girl on the card has black spots on her dress to go with the sanding on the metal flowers. Oh dear - rambling on rather but there's so much in these - almost forgot I love the effect of the scalloped black border echoing the petticoat.Now I'd better go away.......
Have a lovely day.
