A bit of Femme Gothique

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a good day. I've been crafting away today as we've had the BT engineer here yet again and there was no broadband. Now our phone saga has been going on now for nearly 2 weeks, we had already worked out ourselves that it was something to do with the broadband, possibly the hub, that whenever the broadband was on we couldn't recieve calls as it gave an engaged tone. Finally after many calls from here to India someone was sent out that actually knew what they were doing and as we thought we were right all along it's a problem with the hub. The engineers don't carry spare hub's so a new one is on it's way to us by post, phew at long last, so hopefully within the next few days we'll have a working phoneline.

I've done lots of DT stuff, but I managed to get a challenge card done for Digital Tuesday which is a fab sketch to follow.

The image is from the Cherry Kisses Frames Collection by Pollycraft. I've coloured with copics and a blender, I tried to achieve a tie-dyed effect on her top, I don't think it looks too bad. Chalked the background and inked edges in black. Dp's are Dovecraft. The embellishments are made up from jump rings, larger rings from an old belt, leather straps also from same belt, black and white sequin flowers and purple gems. Also added some gems to the image frame. Sentiment was done on PC then chalked and mounted onto black card and one of the dp's. As it looked a mix of feminine and gothic, I decided to reflect this in the sentiment with a little bit of french.

Enjoy your evening and thanks for looking!!
