Totally Papercrafts Pearls and Swirls Challenge

Oohh wow ,, we had loads of entries last week ,,, everyone likes 'Girlie' Cards :-)

Time for a brand new theme over on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge this week the challenge has been set by the lovely Joanne and she has chosen the theme


we are sponsored this week by Squigglefly so some gorgeous digi stamps on offer !! :-)

The DT were given some lovely images to use ,,, thanks xx :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Create4Fun Challenge The image is called 'All Dressed Up' ,, isn't she cute !! :-) I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her shawl, shoes, head band and flower ,, just adding some extra colour for shading. I popped the shawl and flower up a little too with silicone glue for a bit of dimension. I wanted to use black pearls ,, but didn t have any black liquid pearls ,,, so ,,, I squeezed some pearl liquid pearls out ,, then mixed in some copic black alcohol ink ,, and it worked OK !! :-) ,, my pearls are the mishaped freshwater type !!! lol :-) The paper is from Craft Creations and I used pearlescent stardream card and plain black card too. The fancy edge was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The pearls are from Kaiser Craft and the rose is Prima, sprayed with black copic ink using my copic air brush ,, fab gadget that is !! :-) The pin is a lovely Maya road one that I won on Martine's Simon Says Stamp sponsored candy :-)
