My Fair Lady Blog Hop

Hello again....  Here we go on another of Gill's Fabulous Blog Hops!  I love doing these.. so much inspiration out there, and so many blogs to drool over!

 The theme this time, is My Fair Lady, as you can tell by the logo, a little inspired by the elegant and oh-so-beautiful Audrey!!

You should have come to me from Linda
(oh.. if you have "stumbled on me" pop back to Gill's Blog and hop from the beginning.. you are missing out on so much!)

I did do a Google to try and find some images I could use, but I felt I just couldn't do her beauty justice, so, I chose another Fair Lady, a digi stamp I had, and I used her instead.

OK... are you sitting all comfy... off we go.....

I took a box... a charity shop find, and spritzed it...

Then I printed out my Inked Paws digi (twice) onto card, (she is called The Barons Daughter and she is Divine!)

And I coloured her, was a bit nervous as I am not brilliant at skin tones, so decided to leave her Pale and Interesting rather than risk messing her up!

After running her through a die cutting machine, I cut two larger shapes, one on Mirri Card, and one on plain card which I spritzed to match the box

Which I randomly stamped with Steam Punk Style images

And I assembled

Then went to town with Embellies!!!!!

and more embellies.....

And finally.. here is my finished project.......

I hope you like her......cos I do!  I would love you to leave me a message

Right from me, you hop to Debbie, for more Fair Lady Loveliness.....   so grab a coffee and




  1. the image Debs......don't like the box, Sorry! I think you've overdone it a bit and the colours too dark for me.
    Loving the blog hop but Linda hasn't blogged for weeks so had to miss her out. Off to Debbie's now.

  2. So very creative, love the effects you used on the box. Awesome job. Blessings, Linda

  3. lovely box very much going on :) xxx

  4. Debs love your project, the colours are fab, the image brings it all together with the feathers and jewels. The colours, jewels and feathers are what the My Fair Ladies in their day would have worn, such warm colours. Thank you for sharing and showing us how you made this box. I must try and make one. xxx

  15. Hi.

    My name is Colette Horsburgh (aka Celeena Cree) and I'm embarking on an advertising initiative for my small new etsy store. I'm currently offering a free pattern (I have crochet, knit, cross stitch and blackwork patterns) with every purchase on my store.

    I'm also seeing if I can get some craft bloggers to blog about the store. If you could write a small post mentioning us, I'd be happy to provide you with a free pattern also :-)

    If you do choose to help, please let your readers know that ANYONE who blogs about the store and mentions the offer will get a free pattern too.

    Thank you for reading... I hope you can help.
