I Believe In You Too!

I have loved Audrey Hepburn, ever since I first saw her in Roman Holiday, when I was young. I loved her style and sassiness, but her wardrobe was the bomb! She always looked like a princess. I even think my daughter sort of looks like her, so I gave her a large collection of Audrey's movies. Now we watch them together, and she is a fan as well.
When I saw this quote on Artistic Outpost's new release stamp set Quotes and Quoteables, I knew I had to make something depicting Audrey. Although this card is not grungy, but more on the shabby side, I think it embodies my style, but moreover Audrey's. The white millinery netting is probably my new favorite embellishment. If I had the guts and the lifestyle, I'd concoct a hat to wear to some posh event using it, and live like Audrey did in the movies. Who am I kidding...well...a girl can dream, right?
I stamped this in Distress Embossing Ink and embossed in Seafoam Embossing Powder.
Love love love this netting!!!
I stamped two different images from AO in Jet Black Archival Ink to make this background. I wanted a toile damask look.
I colored the roses in using Distress Markers and then covered them in Distress Stickles.  I printed an image of Audrey on the net and adhered her, then added some Prima crystals, along with my sentiment! I inked all the borders in Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
I am submitting this card to Lisa's Blogger Challenge of "black, white, and a splash of color".
