Tangled Dreams

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy World Card Day everyone.  Any excuse for a party I say!  It's been a funny week.  I had plans to do lots and get organised but fun with lightning and visitors and other commitments find me even further from organised than usual.  Ah well, worse things happen at sea.  Or so they say. 

Simon Says Stamp has a super fun colour combo on their Work it Wednesday post, olive, kahki, burnt orange and dark chocolate.  I used Prima Doll Taylor and I have added some tangle patterns to her skirt, leggings and top.  Quite pleased with the flowered top :-)  I used a combination of Promarkers and Sharpies for my colours.  I cut Cheery Lynn Emperor Swan frame and added lace which I dyed with DI Walnut Stain to a nice kahki.  The backing paper is Crate Paper stamped with a Rollerstamp and I used my pens in the middle to burn my orange.  Maybe a bit more bright than burnt?  Say la doo dah.  I ripped the paper, flipped it and added the ripped piece for Taylor to stand on.  Light olive?  Dark olive base card.  Actually I was at the opening of a Greek food shop yesterday and discovered that olives come in many colours.  Ed-u-ma-cational and yummy!!  Hee hee. 

Really liked how the tangles worked on her skirt.  That one on the RHS could be really useful for Halloween cards.  Not sure about the leggings.  Looks a bit like she has some exotic skin complaint!!  ROFL
