This is the first card I have made in a couple of weeks, after celebrating my wedding anniversary and catching up with friends and family over the holidays. It seems the gorgeous sunny weather is here to stay a little longer though, so yay! :D
Anyway, I made this card for a few challenges, but firstly for the Sugar Nellie PCP challenge . This is a great little weekly challenge with some gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamps as prizes, and its held via a forum challenge, so we actually share ideas and inspiration, and well worth a look!..
This week the theme was pink, and I have been desperate to use this new manga princess stamp for ages.
I layered the stamped image on patterned paper (3 layers) and added additional shading with pro-markers. I went for a pastel/shabby vintage look, with distressed edges, vintage feel papers and sanding on the embossed panels.
I used lots of pearls, glitter, stickles and ribbon flowers and an organza bow. I used a MS punch for the lace panels and mat.
