Simply Betty Fortune Teller

Hey everyone

My mojo has been on the go slow lately because of all that's going on in my private life :( I normally try and get my Simply Betty monthly challenge cards done early but this time I took longer. I messed up a few times and I hope that it looks ok. Here is my card for the Simply Betty October Fan Page Challenge.

The card is A5 in size and is made from card from papermill. I have used a silver slight glitter card from my stash and a coloured card from papermill as my base card. I then cut out of purple velvet paper using a spellbinders die to put my lady onto. I have then on the other side used a pink card from papermill and then a freebie paper from craftylicous and then a light blue glitter card from my statsh. I have then used chipboard letters from papermania and then black gem borders from my stash.
The image is called Fortune Teller and is coloured in using promarkers, I have also made the eyes glaze using glossy accents and made the crystal ball all glazed and raised. The beads on her shawls have got liquid pearls on them. Here is a list of the colours I have used for the image: Earrings/Bracelet- Metallic Gold
Head Scarf- Amethyst      Shawl- Orchid, Emerald     Dress- Amethyst, Emerald     Table- Aubergine
Crystal Ball- Metallic Gold, Ivory    Chair- Metallic Gold, Aubergine    Necklace- Emerald, Amethyst
Tarot Cards- Black, Warm Grey 3, Ruby    Hair- Warm Grey 2, 4 & 5      Lips- Red
Eyes- Caramel, Terracotta, Cocoa     Skin- Almond, Coral, Sunkissed Pink
