I was sent a stamp and stencils set called NKCRS04 Fiesta from Stampendous.
I used the positive of the ladies head stencil to draw round which I cut out to make the white card shape I needed to create my centre piece.

The elements inside my pack of stamps.
I used Copic markers to colour the skin tone and features
of her face. Using one of the stamps in the set, I used a
Watermark ink and embossed with white powder
her hat and dress. Colour over the top.
Using another stamp I created a background
over an ink piece of card.
Then I sprinkled aged green embossing
 powder and heated from underneath.
Using a Dreamweaver stencil LJ909,
I inked through to colour the edges
of my backing card.
Now my background is ready for
my silhouette.

The finished card. I added detail to her face and hair with a sepia Micron pen.
I also added a feather and some gems to her hat.

Deadline to comment is Sunday, March 29th, Pacific Time. Winners will be picked using and announced Tuesday, March 31st, in the afternoon.
