New Challenge #104 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hello Again
I'm back again with the second of today's blogs.
I really do hate being ill as it throws 
everything out of sync,
just gotta take things day to day
and focus on the good days.
And like I said in my previous post,
 so glad that I am now feeling 
at least 90% better.

Here is my project for this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Use Some Flowers

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Fresh Brewed Designs who are offering
3 Images from their store

Sassy Studios who are offering
4 Images from their store

A Day For Daisies who are offering
a $12 Gift Certificate for their store

My project for this week is:-

Green Lady Digi Stamp 
from A Day For Daisies
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I used a Pre-cut 
White Panel Screen Card.
I hand cut out a rectangle from the middle
of the panel to make a window.
And then using Light Purple Stripes and Flowers Card
I cut it to fit and covered the front of the Card.
Next I printed off the Image on
White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

  Skin -  Vanilla
Dusky Pink (Cheeks)
Maroon (Lips) Amethyst (Eyeshadow)
Hair - Black
Flowers - Slate
Cool Grey1
Hat - Lilac
Cool Grey 2
Dress - Lavender
Cool Grey 1
Cool Grey 2

To frame the Image I Die-Cut out
Pick Of The Bunch - Peony Window
on Light Purple Card 
On the Embossed parts of the Frame 
(except the Flowers)
I highlighted it with my White Shake Pen
I use a Manual Big-Shot Die Cutter Machine.

For my Flowers, 
I first used a Flower Head Punch
on Pearlised Dark Purple Paper,
and Pearlised White Paper.
(both from stash),
and placed 4 Clear Craft Dew Drops
in the centre of each one.
For the larger flowers
I used the Petal Posy (14pc) Die Set
Made up of 5 Layers for both Flowers.
Using 3 of the Larger different size Blooms
on the Pearlised Dark Purple Paper,
and 2 of the Smaller size Blooms
on the Pearlised White Paper.
Curling each of the petals up and 
fixing them together with
a Light Purple Spotted Sun Brad and
Metallic Purple Flower Brad
(both from my stash).

To finish my Card off I added
some 1mm Seed Flatback White Pearls
to the drops on the Green Lady's Hat.
