Party Girl

Hi. I'm back this week to show you another birthday card - this time for a special friend, Tracey.

The stamp has been coloured using Stampin' Up Watercolour Crayons. The skirt was originally quite slim so I masked it and stamped the skirt section 6 times before colouring.

The flowers are Cheery Lynn Dies - Roses in miniature, medium and large. There's about 10-12 layers in each flower all spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist in Pearl - the large one finished off with a beautiful vintage crystal brad.

I've added Ranger Crackle Accents to the champagne flute, silver stickles all over her skirt (but unfortunately this doesn't show in the photo), and some extra bling to finish off.

I was thrilled to learn that my project Feminine Charms won the challenges at CopicOz and AH Designs. Thank you.

I've been having a bit of trouble with MailChimp sending out multiple emails. I'm sorry, and am hopeful that this won't happen again.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Till next time - Tereesa :-)

Cherish Card

Hi, It was my beautiful Grandmother's 91st Birthday this week, and I thought this gorgeous vintage image may bring back some lovely memories for her.

To achieve this 'spotlight' technique - after colouring certain parts of the image with Distress Inks in Milled Lavender and Squeezed Lemonade, I cut an oval from the centre, backed it with a slightly larger oval, then realigned and attached. Mandy at Scrappy-Go-Lucky has a great range of these Vintage Images by Pion Designs. This one is from "Little Sweeties" - You can check them all out here.

Just a quick post from me tonight. It's late and I have a busy day tomorrow.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Enjoy your week, Tereesa :-)
