Tourist - Saturated Canary

Told you I had some free time to play!  This image is called Tourist from Saturated Canary.  I decided to jazz up her hair with stickles and two tone it!  The buttons on her skirt were so cool.  I put a drop of crystal effects on each button, let it dry, then used a white gel pen to cris cross it.  It really adds a cool effect.  I also got some new diecuts from My Favorite Stamps, and the ticket border is so fun to use, I think it will be very versatile.  Check out her eyes, a dot of white gel pen on her lashes really pops it too!  I'll be entering the following challenges: Girly Girly Prim and Proper
