Breathe in the Future,Breathe Out the Past

Morning and we have a new Anything Mixed Media Goes challenge at A Inky Mess and I certainly had fun with this one.First of all it was the beginning of this card!I stamped the branch wreath then as I lifted the stamp block up I dropped it and it stamped a second wreath just to the right---almost went in the bin then thought it could be covered with card/paper for another card--I then put some oxides through a stencil for another card and pressed the negative onto this one- a Crafters Companion texture stamp (one of my faves)round the edges then got put on my desk for a couple of days.

Looking through my stamps to make another card I found this one Florana from Pip Art which I bought last year and up until now never used--inspiration struck and I thought the head would fit nicely in the circle and found a craft mag freebie stamp(unused) which I though fitted the design perfectly--what do you think ??? I coloured the eyes and hair with promarkers and added glossy accents.Some stone wall mesh around card.
I was really please how this evolved and ended up.

Would like to welcome my new followers KELLY and JOY

Looks like it all turned out very well in the end Carol, in fact it quite a statement piece, the focal image is so elegant and you have built up the stamping beautifully around her. So pleased you shared with us at Penny Black and More challenge.

I thought you had gone all romantic on us when I read the title of this post, but the stamp does suit the card perfectly. The twig wreath reminds me of a halo about her head and the beautiful girl gives has such a haunting look, it all comes together so well my friend.
