Here's to confident, eclectic and very capable women

Over the last few years I have found myself surrounded by confident, capable and eclectic women. These women are certainly not afraid to be themselves and do their own thing no matter what happens. I am so lucky to have these women in my life who constantly bring out the best in me and who have made me realise that we have to walk to the rhythm of our own beat, this card is my tribute to them all.

I absolutely loved the inspiration photo on Runway inspired challenge this time round.  I knew straight away that my favourite Frida Khalo image would be perfect for this card as it has similar colours and patterns to what the model is wearing in the picture. The main image is from Collective Creation, Etsy, the flowers in the background have been replicated from the main image and made lighter for the background and the quote was added, I printed a few extra flowers from the Frida's head dress. The image was printed on my PC and the extra flowers printed were paper-pieced to the the head dress.

That's a fantastic image of Frida. I love the way they made her nose and famous eyebrows with one line, and her mouth a heart. The colors are so vibrant!
