Challenge #97 at Glitter n Sparkle

Even More,
Yes I am still on Catch up mode.

Anyway here was my project for that Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle was:-

Ghost Bride Digi Stamp 
from Aurora Wings
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used an A4 sheet of
Silver Pearl White Card,
which I folded to make a Gate Fold Card and trimmed
to make a 14cm Square Card

I printed off the Image on White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

  Face/Skin -  Vanilla
 Pastel Blue (Eyes)
Maroon (Lips)
Lilac (Eyeshadow)
  Rotted Face - Pastel Pink
Dusky Pink
Dusky Rose
Pastel Beige
Hair - Sandstone
Veil -  Ivory
                 Jewellery -  Yellow
Flowers -  Meadow Green
I then Punched the corners of the Image 
with 3-1 Lace Corner Punch

I cut around a spare copy of the Image keeping 
just the Head, Flowers, Hand and Dress.
Placing this over my coloured Image I then 
sprayed it with Pearl Diamond Spray and Sparkle
(Crafters Companion)
to make the Veil Shimmer.

On a 12cm Square of Pearlised Purple Card
(Ross Papers)
I wrapped a strip of White Lace on the Left Side
and a strip of Black Lace on the Right Side
(both from Boyes Haberdashery)
I then placed my Image on top at an angle.

To show the contrasting sides I made 
2 'Wedding Bouquets'.
 For the Light Side I used
3 Cream, 2 Purple and 3 Lavender
Paper Roses
which I twisted together,
and handmade a Bow from 
10mm Purple Satin Ribbon.
For the Dark Side I used
1 Lavender Paper Rose,
3 Black Paper Rosebuds
and 2 Black Paper Carnations
which I again twisted together,
and handmade a Bow from
10mm Black Satin Ribbon
(all Paper Flowers from Stash,
all Ribbon from Boyes Haberdashery)

For my Finishing Touches,
I added Glossy Accents to her Lips
and Night Sparkle 'Glitz It' Sparkle 
to her Eye Socket and Jaw
(DoCrafts, Papermania)

To  put my card together
I placed the Purple Square on the 
Left Gate Fold, 
and also cut another Square to match
which I place on the inside of the Left Gate.
