Butterfly Girl

Good afternoon

I needed to go clothes shopping today for myself, which I haven't done in months.  This is not an easy job for me, firstly, I only had time to go to my local high street where the choice is very limited.  Secondly, I have very particular tastes when it comes to my clothes, I like to have a vintage feel to them and with the current fashion tends, there isn't much around.  Thirdly, when I go out to purchase clothes for myself I always land up buying clothes for my son instead.


So, what a pleasant surprise to come back with two pairs of trousers and two tops.  Now I want to go out in one outfit, come back and change just to go out in the second.  It's been so long since I have had anything new.


Anyway, I started to make this card late last night and finished it this morning.  The digital image is from The Fantasy Art Of Ching-Chou Kuik and I have coloured her using Copics and ProMarkers.
