She Said by Unity

This card is a little different for me and I debated whether or not I should post it.  The stamp set is She Said by Unity and it was a gift.  I had no idea at the time there was so much controversy surrounding Donna Downey’s designs.

I hope this card will inspire you to mix things up a bit and try another style.  The image and sentiment were stamped in StazOn Black.  I colored her hair with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  Her lipstick was done with a lavender spica pen and I love the way it shimmers like lipgloss.  I sponged around the image with Perfect Plum then added a pretty faux necklace using dark purple rhinestones.

Since I donate cards to charity I would like to make a few more of these to send off to Little Life Preservers.

A close up of her necklace.
