New Challenge #84 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hello again,
and yet again it is Sunday.
Well it is been an interesting week again.
My Papa has gone to join my Mum over in Canada
for the next few months
(probably till British Summer Time kicks in and its warm enough to come back lol).
Also yet again I've got my Partners Niece 
stopping the weekend, 
and she is being very vocal about 
not wanting to watch my other joy of life, 
the F1 Grand Prix,
but tough for her hehe .

Anyway here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Female Card

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Fitztown who are offering
3 Images from their store

Sassy Studios who are offering
4 Images from their store

Inky Impressions who are offering
an $10 Gift Certificate for their store

My project for this week is:-

Cupid Digi Stamp 
from Sassy Studios
(one of our sponsors)

I began with an A4 sheet of 
Pink Card
and cut it to make a 14cm Square Card.
On the edge I used the 'Hearts' Boarder Punch
Hint:- Punch out the Boarder first before cutting and folding to size. 

Next I printed off the image for this project,

on White DC Paper.
Using the Majestic Squares Die-Cut, (6pc)
the 1st and 2nd on the Image
and the 5th on its own.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Skin -             Vanilla
                                     Dusky Pink (Cheeks)
                                     Burgundy (Lips)
               Hair -              Caramel
               Crown -          Gold
               Dress -           Blossom
                                     Dusky Rose
               Tights -          Blossom
                                     Pastel Beige
               Bow -             Gold
               Wings -          Blossom
                                     Dusky Rose
I used the Blender Pen to meld and fade 
the colours together on the 
dress and the wings.

To give the Die Cut and the Card 

a bit of colour and distressed look, 
I blended the Blossom and Dusky Rose
around the edges using 
the Pens and a blending Sponge.

Next to give the Image a bit of a sparkle,

I sprayed it all over with 
Iridescent Glitter, Spray and Sparkle
(Crafters Companion).
Then I added Honey Yellow Sparkling Glitter,
(Craft Planet)
to the Bow and Arrow.
Pink Sparkling Glitter
was put around the edges of the Wings 
and the Ruffle on the front of the Dress.
And White Holographic Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
for the Inside of the Wings and the Crown.
(Yellow, Pink and White are all Loose Glitters)

Then I used a Spare Strip of the Pink Card

and I wrapped a 4.5cm Pink Lace 
around it with a 1.5cm 
White Satin Glitter Edge Ribbon
on top. 
I placed the Strip on the Left side of the Card
and then added a Pale Baby Pink Feather
and a Blossom Pink Feather 
to the right of the Ribbon on the Lace.
And another Blossom Pink Feather
on the Top Right Corner.

I off set placed the Image on the Base card.

Then I added 
a White Satin, Feather and Pearl Flower
on the right corner with the feather.
Added a collection of 
Pink and White Paper Roses
on the Top and on the Bottom Right of the Image.
To add a bit of Glitz to the White Roses
I added some Star Dust Stickles
mixed with a hint of the Pink Glitter.

To finish off my card
I Handmade a Lace Circle
by using a Strip of 3cm White Lace
with some Thread stitched through the Bottom 
then pulled tight and tied off.
On top of that I placed the smaller Die-Cut 
which was distressed and blended the same.
Then using a 'Heart' Ornate Scrollwork Stamp
(Clear Choice, Royal Langnickle)
stamped on using Tuxedo Black Ink
And finally I placed a Row of Flat-backed White Pearls
along the Bottom of the Card.
