Look ar this beautiful submission from......

Deb Clark -@ 17

Hi Shazza,
Well time marches on in many ways, & been many a long year 
since I was 17, but decided to use this photo a friend took of me & 
play around with this  LO, from inspiration from Rubens 'Venus at 
her Toilet'.  How wonderful is his painting! How gorgeous is this 
I am a real novice at Photoshop & so to have success in flipping 
my photo to a mirror image was a joy I have to say!! I chose the 
deep rich colours as my base, with lots of roses...I just felt I had to 
use roses, plus some pearls too, as our main subject has on a pearl 
bracelet. I really enjoyed hand cutting the vellum, & some 
stamping & distressing too. My wings are a set of
butterfly wings...that sense of freedom in youth.
A glorious challenge, many thanks
Cheers, Deb xx
