Special Presentation Showcase: Marie Antoinette

Hi, friends!!  I've got a treat for you!  This is THE showcase event I've been waiting for to bring to you ever so patiently. LOL  Seriously, all kidding aside, many of my AW Challenge Blog's DT ladies have kindly agreed to come up with gorgeous creations for this showcase.  Without further ado, let us begin~!!


Don't you just LOVE Glo's take on Marie?  A zombie version, complete with an eyeball on her cupcake.  Delightfully wicked!



A gorgeous classic look with soft coloring on the image by Janet, with awesome dies in bold colors to compliment.  Black accents provide the perfectly sharp contrast.



Debbie keeps your eyes moving on the card from gorgeous lacy edges, pretty flowers in bright colors, dragonflies, and a little sentiment.  The coloring on the image is bright, with yellow and green masterfully complimenting the red.



Classic Rococo elegance by Lorraine!  Opulent and ornate, every touch is so luxurious.  This project is kept airy and feminine by the use of high-key colors. 



Rich in the jewel tones of ruby, amethyst, garnet, and emerald, that are the hallmark of Aletha's work.  There's something delightfully old-world about this piece, brought on by the ornate metallic accents.


Karina

Karina's Marie is bright and cheerful.  The colors she used remind us of the marvelous sweet confections enjoyed in the court of Louis XVI.  Just like the sweets, this card is so pretty, fun, and irresistible!



An iconic Rococo decor color scheme of light blue and white takes center stage in Donna's beautiful creation that cleverly takes the shape of a fan made from hand mirror cuts.  So charming!


Sandra 

Nostalgic beauty of the bygone era is magically captured in soft pink and brown hues on this delicately feminine creation by Sandra.  Perfume bottle, roses, pearls, and lace.  What more could a girl want?


Marie Antoinette digi is available at my Etsy shop here and at the AW digi shop here.
1500 x 2100 pixels at 300 dpi JPG, 5" x 7" or 12.7 x 17.8 cm.
She has been one of the most popular digis in my shops.


Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing this special presentation by the ladies of AW Challenge Blog DT!  I know I have!  Please be so kind and visit everyone's blog (clicking on each lady's name will get you to her blog) if you enjoyed what you saw here today, and leave them lots of love for treating us to such a visual feast!  Don't you just love seeing different takes on a single image?   Yes, we do! *nod nod*

Till next time, happy coloring!

*** Reminder ***
We are down to the final week of our Challenge #4 at the AuroraWings Challenge Blog.  There's still time to create.  Hope you can join us!
