Howdy! We have a gorgeous inspirational post for you over at the Little Miss Muffet Challenges blog with LOTS of projects to drool over!! So be sure to head on over there and check out what the design team has to show off today. ;D We're have such fun with the Joint Release that we had to play some more - and here's my project to share...

I used elements from all three companies and if you're just joining in on the action make sure you head over to the Three Companies Team Up blog for the release details plus a challenge! On my project I used Evelyn from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Paris Elements from Make it Crafty and I Heart You Tabs 2 from Whimsy. I also used the coordinating Tabs 2 die and N2 Fancy Frame chippie!

For Evelyn's dress color I was trying to go for a gold color and ended up using YR23, Y26, Y21, Y23 and YR30. It worked out better than I thought so I also colored her two sisters, Irene and Florence, in the same colors. After all, gold and art deco somehow just seem to go together, don't they?

The building was colored following Zoe's example in the store, Fancy Balcony. I put the computer up close to my coloring desk and tried to match the colors as best as possible - I loved how her's turned out so I was aiming for the same feel. :D I think what really makes this scene shine is the blue glass door/window and the added greenery - to me it really says "Paris!"

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
