New Challenge #98 at Glitter n Sparkle

And Finally,
back on track again. 
though I have just realised that when this is 
written up, that means I have to go clean the house.
trust me it looks a complete mess.
Though what I expected which children around,
cats living 24/7 in the house, 
(because their bedroom has been taken over by a Dog)
oh yeah and children's friend's 
stopping over every other night.
And to top it all I ran out of Washing Powder 
(till I could get shopping) 
so still got a mountain of clothes to get through.

my head hurts.
I'm gonna curl up in a ball and see if any nice
Pixies wanna do it all for me lol.

Anyway here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Add Some Metal

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Patties Creations who are offering

IKE'sART who are offering

My project for this week is:-

Lenore Digi Stamp 
from IKE'sART
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used an A4 sheet of
 Pearlised White Card.
(Ross Papers).
Which I folded in half to make my Base Card.
then on top of that I placed a piece of
12 x 17cm Dark Red Card
of which I had Rounded the Corners off 
using 5mm Corner Punch

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

  Face/Skin -  Vanilla
 Pastel Blue (Eyes)
Dusky Rose (Lips)
Hair - Sandstone
Dress -  Poppy
                 Bird -  Gold
Cool Grey 3
Cool Grey 4
Cool Grey 5

I then Die-Cut it out using the 2nd Largest
Rectangle Parenthesis 2
and Backed it onto the Silver/White Feather Card 
(Art Deco, Roaring 20's, DoCraft)
Which I also Die-Cut out using the Largest Rectangle Parenthesis 2.

Behind the layered Image on the Right
I placed 2 Black Feathers
Using 10mm Red Satin Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
I handmade a Bow
to which I Clipped in the Middle
a Metal Heart Charm

For My Sentiment I used

a Clear Rubber Stamp,
'All of a Twitter' from the Owl Collection
(Woodware Craft Collection,
free from Papercraft Essentials)
using Tuxedo Black Ink
