Hi there bloggers, I am back with another challenge entry today. I received my new stamps from Tickled Pink Stamps yesterday and was sooo excited as it included my new "Fairy Kira" stamp. If you haven't already been across to Tickled Pink Stamps to see their new release, you should do so a.s.a.p!! The whole release is gorgeous, but this little Miss has certainly captured my heart! (and my imagination). This week at Tickled Pink's Challenge Blog, the theme was "Birthday Wishes". I took up the gauntlet and this is what I came up with.....
I should mention first that I have this week also discovered another fabulous crafter. Her name is Kathy Files and she is from the very popular blog Paper Phenomenon, now if you are at all into scrapbooks and mini albums this is the person to watch ladies!! She is fabulous!! She runs a blog (in fact several) a kit blog, you tube videos and ustream classes...I am telling you amazing, amazing, amazing!! Anyway, she provided the inspiration for the little "extra" something I included in my card this week.
I should mention before I go back to my project that I was running a little behind time on this project so in my rush, I had to squeeze it in wherever and whenever I could...hence, the photo's have been taken at my daughter's ballet school whilst she was in ballet (excuse the shots) so that I could post this in time for the challenge. Now back to my card....
Unfortunately, because of my desperate attempt of photographing this in time I don't think you can see all the beautiful glitter!! I wanted to make this card like a fairy garden and very feminine and pretty. I think the result is very whimsical. The papers range that I have used is Kaiser's Hippy Girl collection. I have distressed my project throughout using the following distress inks and a distressing tool, "Crushed Olive", "Walnut Stain" and "Vintage Photo". As mentioned this gorgeous image is part of Tickled Pinks Lil Lolita and Lads Allsorts Collection.
I will update this post with further details about my card later tonight and I will have to in time make a you tube video so that you can see the whole of the album and how it opens and closes etc as there are little pockets and tags all over the place. But for the meantime, I hope you enjoy it!
