Femme Fatale

It's almost time for a new release at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!!! Susana will be releasing the "Sweet Meets Sassy Collection #2" by SCACD artist Victoria Case. This release of stamps actually includes two sets..."The Retro Crew Collection" and "Hearts & Hugs-The Fun Collection". The sneak peeks start today and will continue right up to our release day blog hop this Friday! Each day, two of the SCACD design team members will have sneak peeks to share with you...up today are Carolyn and your's truly. :) You can visit the store blog, Follow Your Heart, each day for links to the talented ladies who have previews to share with you.

Today, Carolyn and I have the privilege of introducing the very sassy "Femme Fatale" who is part of the "Retro Crew Collection #2". How much fun is she??!! Oh, to be so glamorous! As soon as I saw this vixen, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. :) While she is quite reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe, that dress immediately made me think of Jessica Rabbit..do you remember the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit??!! lol That settled it for me...she was definitely going to be wearing a red sequined number just like Jessica. I went with a smaller card base than I usually do...it's 4x5. The rhinestone swirls are from my local dollar store. The "Glamor Girl" sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. It was cut out with some circle Spellbinders and matted on Spellbinders Lacey Circles. I jazzed up the red and silver cardstock with some Smooch Illuminate and Stardust Stickles. There certainly is no shortage of bling on this card! The white organza ribbon is from Walmart, and that gorgeous black flower is from Prima (Delightful Day).


"Femme Fatale" was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. To create her "Jessica Rabbit" gown, I coated her dress with Stardust Stickles. I used a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White on her pearl necklace, bracelet and earings. Her diamond ring was given a bit of dimension with the Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner.



Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: Y21, Y26, E31, E33, E37, E50, E59 Dress: R22, R27, R46, R59, C5, C7 Gloves: E50, E53, E57, blender
