Morning all, today it's time for another challenge over at Deep Ocean and this time we'd like to see projects that Sparkle!
I used my new Saturated Canary stamp 'Circus Trixie' and she's a real beauty! I love these Saturated Canary images & can't wait to start collecting them - it's been such a while since I used any other stamp line than Magnolia & whilst I LOVE Tilda, it's been nice to colour something different for a change.
Beautiful papers are from the new Vintage Spring collection by Maja Design. Edges have been inked, sewn and distressed. I used white Frantage embossing powder around the image oval, applied with Versa-mark ink & set with a heat tool. For best results add several layers & don't over heat so the powder still has some texture.
I added 2 metal pieces on either side of the Spellbinders Floral Oval die from We are Memory Keepers metal hardware tin in Pewter & tied with pink organza ribbon to match the ribbon tied to the hula ring on the image. Image has been coloured with Distress Inks - she was a real pleasure to colour, especially the hair - which is something I can struglle with when colouring Tilda & I'm often not happy with it! But this hair has turned out really well...lovely long lucious locks!
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo slight shading with Walnut Stain
Cheeks: Aged Mahogony mixed with Tattered Rose
Lips - Aged Mahogony
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress, Ballet Shoes & frill- Victorian Velvet shading with Black Soot
Tights, glove, box & frills - Pumice Stone shaded with Black Soot
Other frill layers - Squeezed Lemonade shaded with Black Soot
I added lots of Sakura white pen highlights to the heart on Trixies face, the polka dots on the lemon frill layer and to the hair. To finish I added a silver crown charm.
Thw frame is made with my new Martha Stewart clay making kit & the sentiment inside is by LOTV. Butterflies are punched from an old book using Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punches, I then layered with 2 butterflies cut out from Maja Vintage Spring papers.
White flowers & berries are kort & godt, small pink are from Live & Love crafts and the larger pink ones are Kaisercraft. Below is 2 die cut So Wrapped Lovely Doo Hickey dies, finished with shabby seam binding (also from Live & Love Crafts), lace and black vintage buttons that I sprayed white.
Thanks for looking!
