A most delightful WT, Sabrina! And thank you to everyone who provided inspiration this week. It was one of those challenges when I knew exactly what I wanted.
It all began with Stampin Up 'French Script'. I inked it with Memento 'London Fog' at an angle on the page. Of course, I needed a mask of the Paris Dreams stamp from Technique Junkies. She is stamped with the Memento 'Paris Dusk'. I love to fussy cut, and she was fun.
I added a snippet of seam binding to her dress making a fussy bow at the back. A shimmery blue butterfly also. I think dreams are in her head....or at least she's reading my TH Washi paper definition tape. Her earrings have a bit of sparkle too.
The beaded SOUL painting was stamped and the edges embossed with 'Watering Can' ep. I used sticky glue to adhere the micro beads on the word, SOUL.
I loved this challenge...it's been a long time since I have created a collage. Girls, it felt great. Can't wait to see the gallery...

Oh wow! This is collage with attitude Susan! The glass beads on the word made me gasp with they match perfectly to the bow on the dress. The delicate script is the perfect background ... and washi tape! How cool is that design before. What a fabulous creation *claps hands*

Oh wow. You know I love Paris themed cards - and this is excellent. Such a wonderful collage. The texture the beads add to SOUL is fantastic. And the seam binding on her dress, love that detail. What amazing washi tape, too - till I read your description I assumed it was a piece from a dictionary. Ha, the font in it is exactly like my mother's old Shorter Oxford (two volumes, each about 4" thick. I kept one when we cleared the house out - it will keep me going for card-making till I die).

Fabulous card Susan! You really have a knack for putting things together. I would describe this collage as graceful....it's almost CAS with all the white space (stamped with script) and it has such interesting embellishments..the seam binding, the microbeaded word...really well done. :)
