Music and Dance

A day late this week for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday, and this time it's 'music and dance'. I've used the LOTV little ballerina and coloured her with Copics: skin tones with E000, E00, E01 & E21; hair with E70, E71, E74 & E77; pinks with RV00, RV02, R81, R83 & R85; ballet slippers and top with cool grey shades and shadow with B60.

Here's the card - the papers are from my freebie magazine stash but I've no idea who they are by as there's nothing written on them. I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone DI and matted with Sahara Sand cardstock by Stampin' Up! The text is also by LOTV and I've added lots of Stardust Stickles to bling things up, then created embellishments from Marianne diecut swirls, Martha Stewart Hydrangea flower punches and finished of with bling gems.

The theme over on the My Time To Craft blog challenge is to use your favourite embellishment - mine is certainly my dies and punches to create my own embellishments from left over scraps of card, plus a close second has to be bling! The Sweet Stampin' challenge is to use glitter and bling while the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge is 'out with the old' to use your old stash - there's nothing new on this card!

  6. This is really cute - I love her sparkly tutu! Thank you for playing at Sweet Stampin' this week. Tracey x

  7. Her little sparkly skirt is lovely & I like the way that bottom right flower particularly reminds me of a tutu with its shape. The musical backing paper suits very well & I love the way the sparkle of the gems catches the glittery effect to enhance it.
    Take care of yourself & hope you manage to have some rest for yourself over the weekend.
