Afternoon everybody, another gorgeous day up this neck of the woods, got three loads of washing out on the line and have the joy of ironing later lol. Took sometime out to make today's card, using my new "CC Designs ~ Fairy Tales Liberty" stamp.

Attention To Detail:

The image has been coloured with my promarkers: tan, caramel, cinnamon, sandstone, satin, blush and dusky pink. I know the real statue is blue/green but I wanted her to fit in with my papers. I then covered the image with crackle glaze to create the distressed/shabby texture to it.

The papers I have used are scraps of "Prima ~ Botanicals" I have distressed all the edges with my scissors to create a shabby feel. I have adored using these papers and I'm determined to use up every last scrap. I used blue and ivory "papermill card" for matting and layering.

I have created a hidden tag, containing the sentiment (which came with the stamp). The tag has been covered in the same prima papers and distressed. I have added some ivory lace to the tag and the card, this is from the "Ribbon Girl".

I then finished the card by decorating the inside with co-ordinating papers and added a swirl of pearls and gems to the front.


I am hoping to enter the following challenges.

Cupcake Craft Challenge - # 152 Shabby Sparkle.
Creative Inspirations - #121 Around The World.
