Altered Image!

A while ago the lovely Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs sent me some lovely Original Vintage Ladies images to play with and I made this, well this time I decided to use one of the images for Christmas.  I have really 'played' this time and have actually changed the colour of the ladies clothes!  Wasn't sure if this would work, but they coloured beautifully with Promarkers to give them a really festive look - (hope you don't mind Ignacio) but it just shows how versatile these images can be.  My background uses the Stampendous Snowy Postcard and Christmas Greetings and LOTV recipe for my layers.

I am entering this at
  Crafts-Too - Vintage Christmas - pt. 2 Polychromatic
  Southern Girls - Circles
  Die cut Divas - Holidays and Celebrations

Thanks for visiting and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.

So bright and bold Avril but changing the colours works for me. Crafting is so about experimenting and having a go so well done on you sweets.
