Tickled Pink Stamps - Fashionette Lil Lolita preview - Day 3!

So glad you all loved Mod Ivy - she's groovy isn't she!? Day 3 of the Tickled Pink Stamps Fashionette Lil Lolita stamps and its all a bit depressing today as we zip back to the 1930's and the great depression!! Lylah's still looking stylish though despite the lack of money LOL - how gorgeous is this outfit!?!?!
Art Deco was still around in the 1930's so I used this gorgeous paper from Basic Grey Cappella pad which has an art deco kind of pattern in my opinion and was also great colours for a 1930's card.
I've coloured Lylah with copics and cut her out with a nesstie which I think is a bit art deco shaped too LOL.
I had some fun with the embellishments and decided to clear emboss some of the flowers for a bit of a Bakelite feel as that was all the rage then too LOL. Then to give it a bit of a make do and mend feel befitting a depression I added some flowers punched from a book page and some button brads. A pearl "hat pin" for Lylah's hat and some Woodware punched leaves completes the look!
The gorgeous ribbon and all the brads are from my stash and the small spacers are from the Hobby House.


Hope you like Lylah as much as I do and can pop back tomorrow for another gorgeous Fashionette Lil Lolita preview - you know you want to know what she's like!! Thanks for looking x
