I can't even believe it but this is my very first participation in one of the OCTOPODE challenges that Lily has. I'm such a fan of her stamps that I really am surprised by myself and that I don't have a bunch of cards made using her stamps. I'm a very slow starter , and of course better late than never right? So here is my first attempt.

I'm not that thrilled with the outcome of the background (we were suppose to have dots and dashes incorporated somehow), it doesn't look like it meshes well to me, but I don't have time to do another one now so there you have it. I do however like what I did with Marie Antoinette's hair. She was known for always having what we girls used to call "Big Texas Hair", and she always seem to have embellishments in her hair as well.
I used white yarn to do her hair and then I had to add some Pearl Ex to it so it went with her dress.

I'm looking forward to doing another challenge using Lily's amazing stamps. If you haven't bought yourself any, you are probably in the minority because it seems everyone has her products now. But if you don't, I say rush over to OCTOPODE and buy yourself some. The prices are extremely reasonable for what you get, and who wouldn't have fun with these images?

Talk to you soon and thank you very much for stopping by and for taking time out to write any comments. I appreciate it so very much.
