A stately raven of the saintly days of yore…

I’ve got a card to share today featuring the simply gorgeous Dark Cinderella, an image drawn by Abigail Larson and available from Simply B Stamps.

I really wanted to do something special with Dark Cinderella so I went with an easel card.  I echoed the lacing of her bodice on the card although in the end you can’t see much of the lacing I added thanks to my embellies.  And being a Steampunk image, I just had to use some metal cogs for the embellies along with some flowers, love my flowers!  So I’m entering this in the current challenges at Creative Moments (Steampunk) and Crafter’s Café (flowers).

I’m also linking this up at As You Like It’s challenge of your favourite colouring medium.  You only have to come by my blog twice to know I colour everything with Copics, I love them and can’t wait to finally get all the colours.  Not sure if Fran-tage counts as a colouring medium, if it does then it is my favourite for doing backgrounds and there’s plenty of it on this card.

Heres a close up of the beautiful image.
