The image on my Easter card is from Sandi's Samples and is called Hat Lady, I have used her in a number of different projects, but I think this latest project is probably my favourite. The image is a profile of a lady wearing a wide brimmed hat with some flower and ribbon designs on it.  I printed out the full image and coloured the face, shoulders and inside of the brim with copics and touch pens.  I also cut out the hat in a cream cardstock, to the hat shape I've added flowers, leaves, ribbon, a bow and some glittery braid.  I have also added the braid to the back of the inside brim to continue the effect of her wearing the hat. . I mounted the hat by attaching the head part with tape and the brim part is only attached at each end with glue so that I got the shadow you would see with such a hat, (hope that all makes sense).  Mounted on some pale blue polka dot paper, added some pearls and a sentiment, which I have brushed Liquid pearls over.

This card is entrered into the following challenges:
Try it on Tuesdays - Hats and Easter Bonnets
City Crafter - Inspired by a Song - (I chose, Easter Parade)
Perfect Sentiment - Easter Bling
Paper Shelter - Easter
A Blog Named Hero - Free Style - Any project any style.
