Art Creations Friday Challenge...

The Art Creations Friday Challenge: posted this beautiful lady as the challenge photo.

I left her pretty much the same but added a resist image ontop of her and sponged a light pink and brown around the edges.
I did mask her face because my first attempt I didn't and I didn't like the effect. I also tried using a chalking technique where you chalk first and then emboss with clear embossing powder. The effect didn't show enough color on the resist. I bunched the lace along the bottom with glue dots. I added flowers, hat pin and embossed a silver charm with bronze embossing powder to coordinate with the photo corners.
