Simon Says Dance !

ooh as soon as I saw Hazels fabulous sketch and Glitz theme on the Moving Along With The Times Challenge I just had to get out my new
Simon Says Clear Stamps HEATHER'S DANCE BALLET TAP JAZZ Lot Exclusive This is the first time I am using these and love this set !! ;-)

I alos followed the lovely colour scheme on the Colour Create Challenge who are asking for Hot Pink / Dusky Pink / Ice Chocolate and the added optional extra of pearls and swirls :-)

I chose some swirly and dusky papers from BG Eva paper pad and distressed all the edges with antique linen distress ink,, my fave colour ! I used some light brown shimmery card for layering. The image was stamped with memento ink and coloured with copics and 3D'd. I used copic glitter pen and lace stickles to glam it up a bit :-) The dancers and text were also from the same set,,, the ribbon and pearls from my stash ,,,:-)

I am also entering this into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge whose theme is One For The Girls :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Before you hop off you may be interested in my weekly blog candy, you can see it at the top of my blog :-)
