New Challenge #82 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hello again,
Yes its Sunday again, and I think this is the 
calm before the storm.
My partners youngest sister had her 
Gorgeous Little Boy this week
(Congrats to her and her Husband).
and next week I have got my partners
middle sister's 2 eldest children,
as she's off to hospital to have her
 Bouncing Baby Girl.

I swear everyone I know is having a Baby,
so I might end up showing a few 
Baby cards on here soon!!!

Anyway here is my project for this Week:-

My project for this week is:-

Lenore Digi Stamp 
from Ike's Art
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I used an A4 sheet of 

Dark Brown Pearlised Card
(Ross Papers)
which I cut to make a 14cm x 18cm Card,
with a 7cm x 18cm front.

Then using some Bronze Paper

which I Dry Embossed using 
a Diamond Embossing Card
I covered the full 'half -front' of the card.

 I Die-Cut out the front Rectangle out using

the largest Romantic Rectangles #2 (4pc)
from the Dark Brown Pearlised Card.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Skin -             Vanilla
                                     Dusky Pink (Cheeks)
                                     Burgandy (Lips)
                                     Cyan (Eyes)
               Hair -              Black
                                     Cool Grey 5
                                     Cool Grey 4
               Dress -           Shale
                                     Burnt Sienna
               Bird -              Mustard
                                     Cool Grey 5
                                     Cool Grey 4
                                     Cool Grey 3
                                     Cool Grey 1
                                     Burnt Sienna

Next I placed a 10mm Strip of Brown Satin Ribbon 

down the Left Edge of the card.
and I Hand-Made a 6 Loop Bow 
from 3mm Brown Satin Ribbon

To finish off my card
I added some different sized 'Natural Duck' Feathers
(Trimits Decorative).
And 4 Flat-Back Bronze Gems,
on the corners of the Die-Cut Rectangle
