Crafting When We Can Challenge 36 - Strawberries and Cream (red and white)

The Challenge for this fortnight is Strawberries and Cream or red and white.  We were given images to use by our lovely sponsor who is 

The image I chose to use is Maggie. She reminds me of the showgirls you see in the saloons in the old Western films.  I can see her on the stage of Deadwood (Calamity Jane reference).

I have cut my card into a diamond shape, not as easy as it looks for me, getting the right dimensions took some doing.  The base card and mats are are from Rymans it's 200gsm, cream, coated card and the DP is another sheet from my K and Co 12 x 12 pad.  Circles of the paper and card were inked with fired brick DI and rolled into flowers and stuck on with my glue gun.  Boy does that glue get everywhere.  The image was coloured with Copic markers.  I will choose a sentiment later when I find them all so I can choose the right one.
Now you've seen my project hop over to the Challenge blog and leave your Strawberries and Cream projects with the blue froggy and the DT will be over to leave you some love.
