Diamonds at the OSCC

Wahoo! It's Saturday which means it's a new challenge over at One Stop Crafts Challenge. This week we are challenging you to be inspired by "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend'. Sassy Studios is our fabulous sponser. Please stop over to see the awesome creations by the DT and join in the fun. I pulled inspiration from some other awesome challenges and did and redid my card. I had visions of an elegant black and white creation with lots of sparkle. What happened was I kept smudging my black ink into my skin tones. I did all the image, except the black, and still messed it up when I pieced things together. After redoing the image 3 times, I just decided to roll with it. It's pretty tough to colorless blend black 'shadows' from a sassy girls face and arms or cover it up. I did a last ditch attempt with a glitter gel pen trying to acheive 'body glitter'. The main image, makes my girl look 'dirty/dusty' but the image detail shows what I was trying to  achieve.
