So without further ado...here is my card for the Anything Goes design team challenge 'Home Sweet home'. I wanted to do a bit of a twist to the theme & make it an unusal style, more suited to a young buisness type or even an older teenager whos maybe just moved into their swanky new city flat...
...The image is by Sugar Nellie & papers are We are Memory Keepers. I've used Distress Inks as usual & highlighted with my Doodle Bug Design glitter - which is really seeing some action at the mo! The full pictures not really picked it up, but in real it really sparkles! See below for colours...
Skin: Tattered Rose
Cheeks & Lips: Worn Lipstick & Fired Brick
Hair: Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick (pink glitter highlights)
Skirt, shoes & earings: Tumbled Glass & Faded Jeans (blue glitter highlights)
Top, tights & bow: Shabby Shutters (green glitter highlights)
...Sentiment reads 'Cool new pad' - mini-alphas by Cosmo Criket & chipboard letters are from the collection & I've added Crackle paint for that distressed/ vintage look. I've also distressed all the paper edges with a craft knife...
...I made the flowers using the spiral technique - which I just LOVE at the mo - I think they're so effective, watch out for a tutorial on them here soon...
...I've made the pin with some glass & pearl beads then secured a tag from the collection. Lastley I finished the edges with black lace & added some ornate silver corners.
