• You are beautiful


    Hello there, 

    Today I have a fun card for you, so grab a cuppa 'cause there's lots of details!


    I started with the background. I used the My favorite things Roses background, my Misti, 4 watercolor markers and a water spritzer. After placing the stamp in my Misti I scribbled the markers on the stamp, making sure I colored the whole thing and trying not to overlap. I wanted pink and blue, not purple. I then spritzed a couple of times with my water spritzer and closed the Misti door. I let the stamp sit for a few seconds before removing it. I set the background aside to let it dry.


    On Neenah cardstock I printed this cute "She is charming" digital image from The Paper Shelter. I also printed a mirrored image. I colored the images with Copics as alike as possible. The original image was fuzzy cut. The other was die cut with the second smallest MFT linked chain circle. I felt the circle frame could easily be a mirror frame.


    After die cutting the mirror image, I covered it with a thin layer of Ranger glossy transparant texture paste. I wanted to make it resemble the glassy surface of a mirror. I set it aside to dry.


    The "mirror frame" was stamped with WOW! embossing ink and covered with WOW! Opaque pastel pink embossing powder. I repeated this step 2 more times for dimension. I then again stamped with the embossing ink and sporadically sprinkled WOW! Metallic platnum powder and heat set it. I repeated this step but sprinkled with WOW! Pink sherbet powder, which is pastel pink with a little bit of glitter. I think this all gives the frame a cool vintage look. I then die cut the linked chain circle frame 3 more times and adhered one on top of the other.
    Note the glossy mirrored image.


    I stamped a sentiment from the MFT All about you and die cut the YOU from the MFT Miss you die-namics 4 times. The top layer is embossed with 2 layers of WOW! Black magic - How gorgeous is this powder?!
    The sparkle on the dress, shoes and headband are Spectrum noir clear sparkle.


    To "ground" the beautiful girl I used the Avery Elle Bookmark elle-ments and cut some Doodlebug paper. I cut the bookmark shorter to fit it to the card. To do this I first die cut the whole bookmark. Then slide the die over the cardstock circa where I want to cut, until the little knobs fit into the indentations. Remember to place your top plate so you only cut the wanted part. I wiped the embossing ink pad along the edges of the bookmark and covered it with WOW! Black magic. I also added a hot pink ribbon and some silver twine.
    I popped up the girl with craft foam and placed her directly across from the mirrored image.
