Good afternoon friends and bloggers - this is my DT post for Crafty Time Challenge where our theme is 'Movie, Book or Song'.   I chose this digi from Rick St Dennis 'cos she made me think of Shirley Bassey singing 'Hey Big Spender'!  Must admit I can picture Ms Bassey standing there singing away - my mother loved to watch her on the tv - I was more into The Animals, The Beach Boys and Guns 'n' Roses meself to name but three!

I coloured the image three times before I finally settled for blue and turquoise.  I used red and black first of all but I didn't have these hand made papers in red or black.  I then had a go with black and gold and she just looked like a wasp, blue and gold followed but the gold just didn't look right so I got the papers on my desk and when I saw them I thought of a peacock and that's when it came to me - blue and turquoise!  I was finally happy with this and used some 'old' dies to make the feathers.  I've glazed all the jewels she's wearing but you can't see them in this pic.
