GC65: Famous Painters or Paintings

We're focusing on paint this month on Gingersnap Creations so it should be no surprise that our Chestnut Theme Challenge is focusing on Famous Painters and Paintings.

I adore Degas and I have had this image of one of his ballet dancers forever. I so happy to be able to use it for this challenge. I decided to watercolor with my inks to give this image a nice soft feel. I also wanted to keep this card simple to really keep this beautiful dancer center-stage!
