Divas is the theme for the next Roses on my Table ATC trade. I wasn't sure what to do, because I really don't have a lot of respect for famous people who think they are uber special and act like divas. Many of the music divas really don't sing/play the kind of music I like, so I went a little outside the diva box, and thought about favorite female singers. My inner rocker chick came up with a few ideas, but if I could be anyone, singing wise (and no, I can't carry a tune) it would be Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.

So, I played with Chrissie in photoshop, plunked her face and guitar down on a Graphics Fairy royalty free clipart of a fairy riding a butterfly, then added one of my own monoprints for a background, bigger wings from a Graphics Fairy butterfly, and some sexy high red boots. I softly colored Chrissie's face in photoshop. This is the result, to which I will soon print, add gloss and glitzy accent.
