Put on Your Red Shoes and ........

When I saw this week's I Copic Lover Color challenge of using red, pink, and white, I thought "ugh...Valentine's Day!" However, then I saw all the challenges for vintage and pearls and lace, and I thought, "maybe I can pull something off that doesn't look like Valentine's Day." So I pulled out my new Magnolia stamp and colored her with R29, R24, R20, RV34, RV32 , C1, Y11, Y13, Y15, E00, E11, and E35. I then brushed over her dress with red shimmer chalks (hard to see in picture). I added stickles to part of her dress and to her tiara. I covered her shoes with glossy accents to give them a patent leather look.

I used K&C papers and distressed them with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet ink. I used my nesties to cut out my image and sentiment and distressed them also. I also embossed my extra oval with my Cuttlebug.  I added lace with pearls, 2 pins with pearls and rhinestones, flowers, and more pearls and rhinestones, and finished it off with a hearts with wings charm. I feel in the end I achieved a vintage feel rather than a Valentine's Day look....what do you think?
