Challenge #93 at Glitter N Sparkle

as I said today is going to be a catch up
of Blogs missed.
So here is the second of today's instalment.

Also not only have I had my Very Happy News
(please see my previous Blog ;P)
but I have also been looking after a 
newborn baby and a 2 year old 
for my 'sister-in-law' while 
her house is being ripped to bits 
for re-wiring and decorating. 
And to top it all off 
have started so that means
loads of kids in and out, 
stopping and going
(My partner has 2 daughters plus 
6 nieces and 6 nephews).

Anyway here is my project for that Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle was:-
Anything Goes

Taski Digi Stamp 
from Crafty Sentiments
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used a pre-cut White Spring Card,
Then I chose a picture off the Internet called 
Loady Bug
which I die-cut out using Scalloped Squares
and used the corners from the remaining paper,
to put on the Bottom of the card
(so that it all tied in).
I wanted it to look like she is 
skipping and splashing along the top of the water 
on the Lily-Pad Leaves.

I printed off the Image on White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.
(I added to her Eyes and Mouth 
to give her an 'Anime' look)

  Skin -  Blush
Face -  Dusky Pink (Cheeks, Nose)
Amethyst (Eyes)
Poppy (Lips)
Hair - Lime Zest
Meadow Green
Dress -  Lemon
Lime Zest
Meadow Green
Socks -  Lemon
Wings -  Lime Zest
Bow -  Lemon
Lime Zest

I then Fussy Cut all around the Image.

To Bling my Card up I
added Glitter to my Image.

I used Iridescent Yellow on her Hair Bow, 
and on the Lemon Squares on her 
Belt and her socks .
On her Wings I used Iridescent Mint Green all over,
but around the edges of her Wings,
I used Chameleon Flakes.
(all glitter from Glitter Magic)

To finish off my card, 
I used a piece of 5mm Lime Green Ribbed Ribbon,
which I handmade into a Bow.
And 5mm Flat-backed Diamante's 
1 in each of the Corners on the Top, 
and along the White Boarder on the Bottom.
