Midweek Motivation - Feminine/Romance Challenge

Hello all, Fliss here today with a little bit of ooh la la inspiration for the current challenge theme which I hope you'll like.
I've gone for a vintage look after a good rummage through my experiments box and came across a piece of background paper made using the vaseline resist technique which was happily perfect to go with the image I wanted to use.
Here's my creation:

The background paper uses Vintage photo Distress ink with the resist technique and gives a lovely shabby chic effect.
The elegant showgirl is by Kanban and I stamped her with Memories artprint brown then coloured the image with Promarkers and watercolour pencils and die cut the panel.
I made a border using corrugated card recycled from a takeaway coffee cup holder which I painted with acrylics and then sprinkled with tarnished gold embossing powder and heated to melt.
The fleur de lys embellishment was made by stamping the image and embossing with Frantage aged green embossing enamel then cut it out.

I'm hoping that we get a few more entries this week as it's the final week of the French theme and I would like thank those of you that rose to the challenges so magnificently.
Fliss xx
