Uptown girl

Hello fellow Crafters,

After struggling with making the CAS card for the Craftorij this morning, I thought I try and do another art journal page and this is it:

The page was gessoed and painted with light blue Paperartsy Fresco paint. I then used a TCW stencil for the bricks. I did those with Pan Pastels. I also did a little bit of background stamping. The butterflies were stamped with Versa Mark and then coloured with white Pan Pastel. I used Stampotique's Gibi, stamped her on white paper, coloured her with watercolour pencils and clear embossed her before I glued her on the page. Tip: If you put dubble sided tape on the back of your stamped, coloured and embossed image and then cut it out you only have to remove the backing and stick it on your page, very easy!
For the tree and the flowers and leaves I used bits of Stamptique's Tree on the trunk and the branches. The flowers are punched out and the leaves came from a Dylusions stampset and were cut out individually. The paper I used for all of this were paint swatches from the DIY store. I glued a little jewel in each flower. Lastly I stamped 'Uptown girl' , another song title, on the page and that was it !
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like it....
