Hanna in the little black or is gold dress?

Hi ya,
Well I couldn't help myself, Hanna just had to make a second appearance, but she's had a bit of a makeover. Can you spot the difference?...

Yep, got rid of the ruffle on top of her head, changed her hair style to a pony tail and lowered her fringe on the one side. Then gave her a necklace, earrings and a ring. Just wanted to glam her up a bit. I was toying with the idea of changing the mug to a glass, but decided I'd messed about with her enough. I made this card with inspiration from Mary's card, as I liked the sketch she used and from Emilie, who has made two beautiful red and black cards.

Right I'm not going to bore you stupid with a long description like I did with the last Hanna card. I'll just tell you what I used.
From the base up...
1. Stardream pearlescent black card
2. All papers by imaginisce - Black Tie Optional collection. I went over the dots and flower centres with Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust clear and black pens (I know I'm sad).
3. Ribbon from Raspberry Ribbons Black & White January kit. Ribbon sliders by Syntego.
4. Hanna clear stamp - Cafe. Image coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils, Sansodor, Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Black pen, Staedtler triplus fineliner 0.3mm pens, gold gel pen and Sakura Gelly Roll clear and black glaze pens. Rhinestones added to necklace and bracelet.
5. Silver silk Mirri card.
So depending on the light her dress can be black or gold. Looking at the pictures now I wish I had used a plain white card as the main backing paper, as it seems way too busy. Oh well you live and learn, and it seemed a good idea at the time. But saying that I DO like Hanna's makeover. I'll have to have another look at her and see what else I can come up with :o)
Take care, keep smiling and toodle pip

OMGoodness!!! You very creative lady!! What a good idea! (sometimes, it's just like playing with paper dolls...we must have missed something in our childhood!) lol I love the improvements you added to Bella -- Bravo! That really doesn't sound right together, but it's what came to my mind!) Awesome card! :)
