Fab'n'Funky Challenges #127 - Cute and Girly

Hi Everyone,

It's official - we are all dotty!!  One winner has been picked at random and Anne-Marie has also chosen her top 3.  I'm not sure how she every managed to choose.  Check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to see if it was you!  Don't forget to grab your badges too.

Now onto the challenge for this week and we have the lovely Pat P as our host.  She has chosen a fantastic theme this week...

Cute and Girly
I have used a Saturated Canary image called Ivy.  We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen so be sure to check out her brilliant website for a great range of crafting products.

Isn't she cute?  I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour my image in the following colours:

Dusky Pink
Cobalt Blue
Soft Green
Tea Green
Wild Orchid
Pink Pearl
Blue Grey 1

Once she was coloured I scanned her onto my computer and use My Craft Studio to make matching papers with the colour picker tool.  I really love doing this as the papers are guaranteed to be the right colour.  After scanning the image I used Ranger's Glossy Accents to glaze her glasses. 

I covered my A5 card blank with the pinky paper and then stamped the flourish in Perfect Medium clear ink.  Unfortunately I think my ink pad had dried out and the embossing powder wouldn't stick.  So to add the glitter I used a Quickie Glue Pen and Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles.  I also added a small border of glitter all around the card. 

My image was cut out with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles.  This is the first time I've used this die and it is so lovely.  Although, it did take a couple of runs through my Grand Calibur to get a perfect cut.  The minty paper was put through my Happy Birthday embossing folder and mounted onto silver mirri-paper which hasn't shown up in the photo.  I added my toppers with mounting foam.

I'm entering this card into the Allsorts Challenge 160 - Any Die Will Do

Can't wait to see all of your cute and girly projects this week.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
