Digital Two for Tuesday Guest Designer! .... Ain't Life Grand?

Happy tuesday friends! Did you know that every tuesday is Digital Two for Tuesday at Cora's blog? Well if you didn't you do now :) I have been a long-time follower of Cora's Clearly Vintage blog where she posts free digital vintage images every saturday and she emailed me and asked me if I would be a guest designer (*blush*) for her new blog where she posts digital black and white images every tuesday! Ummm...how could I say no to this honor? Of course, I was in!

So today she has posted two bathing beauties for the taking and I chose this lovely lady. I love her glamour girl pose and the look on her face is priceless. Perhaps it's because her swimming outfit would weigh about 100 pounds once she gets it wet! LOL! I think there is a diva hiding under all of the stockings and layers of dress! I paired her with the newsprint from Kelley Mickus' digi kit (love that print!) and if you click on the photo above to enlarge it, you will see the wanted advertisement for a "steady woman"...love that!

I also added strips of lace and trimmings with my sewing machine. I like to use fabric tac liquid adhesive to tack them down first and then add stitching with the machine.

I also broke out the long ignored chalks in my stash to give her face a rosy glow and her dress a hint of blue. Her red flower sash accent helps to make her the most smashing dame at the beach! Look out ladies ;)
I hope you'll stop by Cora's blog to check out all of her images and also participate in the challenge to use them. You'll find a Mr Linky for today's post at Digital Two for Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by! Your comments and visits always bring a smile to this girls face!
