Tuesday Trigger: Elegant Emerald

Tuesday Trigger's challenge at Moxie Fab World is Elegant Emerald
The dress was my inspiration. But as a began to put together my project, the elegance of the picture became the inspiration.
Longtime a fan of Catherine Moore and her Character Constructions.
Her 'doll' parts are so much fun to put together, color and tweek into a theme.
I pretty much followed the inspiration photo and 'dressed' my doll.
Very modelesque, like the photo, she poses in shades of emerald.
Her veil is complete with metal butterfly, painted wih liquid pearls and studded with rhinestones.
Feather is sprayed with blue and green paint and glittered.
Copics used on body and gown.
Cage skirt is a diecut, stamped and dotted with liquid pearls, over a printed page.
The bookpage layers are sewn and distressed.
She carries her 'lucky' banner. (The wearin' of the green)
She's a tall lady, 5"x8" to top of feather.
Lucky Lady is assembled onto a stamped background of butterflies.
PTI cardstock, inks and butterflies.
Hemline is a strip of gold foil.
I will be hand making the envelope for this card!
I sewed a strip of vellum onto Aqua Mist cardstock and white embossed a white butterfly behind her head. Rather framed the face. She is dusted with fairy dust glitter.
If you have any questions, just ask! I love to share.
