Colour of Failure

Hi Everyone

This week over at Dragons Dream Tag is Z and Face
and the colour scheme is from 'A sprinkle of Imagination'

I have used a Tim Holtz face and then drawn the word Failure onto white cardstock, spritzed with cosmic shimmer sprays (on both sides) so that when I have curled the top of the word over the colour is on both sides.  This looks like a ruffled collar.  The ladder is off the Internet printed onto acetate.  
The background is made of Paper Artsy stamps and WOW embossing powders, over sprayed with colour stain.  The face is coloured in with distress inks and edged with black soot.  The ribbon is grosgrain. The ZZZ is written on with pen.

You cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure.
