It is snowy and icy here in Ohio, YUCK!! So thankful I didn't have to work today or tomorrow!! Instead I played in my craft room, which always makes me happy.
The colors were chosen for The Play Date Cafe challenge
Penny Black Blog Challenge
I started by stamping her in jet black archival ink (Ranger) and coloring her in with markers. Next added a bit of a shadow with a very light grey marker. To make her shine I added liquid pearls in Lavender Lace to the sparkle details and stardust stickles to really give her some bling. Unfortunately it doesn't photograph well.
I cut out the image using nesties Labels 8. The sparkly part of the image I just cut out and glued back to it's original place. I inked around the panel with black soot and matted on black.
I cut the card base in white and added the polka piece (paper pizzaz) which is just a 1/4 smaller.
I used my scallop punch (EK Success) to create the ruffles at the bottom. I glued just the very tops so the ruffle wouldn't be completely flat. Adhere the image panel with foam.
Add some ribbon and a cute bow, done!!
Wishing you sunshine where ever you are!!!
