New Challenge #108 at Glitter N Sparkle

Another week has gone by 
and the weather has definitely turned for the worse
it is still wet and windy.
Its not been a good week at all.
I put my back out on Wednesday,
and had to go to the Doctors.
Upshot more and stronger Medication
and a new clinic to attend with the torturers
(otherwise know as the Physiotherapists).
Downside is its taking me twice as long to make cards,
but I'm glad I can still do a bit.

I have decided that when I'm making Cards 
I would like to incorporate a sketch that has
caught my eye each week,
unless I am making a 3-D project.

The Theme at 

Our Sponsors this week are:-

All Dressed Up who are offering 
2 Images from their store.

Fitztown who are offering
3 Images from their store.

Sassy Studio Designs 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:-

Magical Day Digi Stamp
from All Dressed Up
(one of our sponsors)

I wanted this to be a very easy card to make.

To begin with I used an A4 sheet of White Card
which I folded in half and cut to make an
18 x 12.5cm card.

Then I cut a 17.8 x 12.3cm rectangle 
of Pearlised Black Card
(Ross Papers)
Next I cut out a 12cm Square 
of Pearlised Purple Paper
(Ross Papers)
And a 8 x 12cm rectangle
of Orange Card
(stash - 
Leftover from last weeks card make!)

Using a Cobweb Stencil
(sorry I don't know who's it is, 
if anyone could tell me it would be appreciated)
on the Orange Card.
I rubbed over with my fingers using
Gunmetal Metallic Rub-Ons
(Earth Tones Kit #2 
- Craf-T Products)

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

                                Skin -     Vanilla
                                                Dusky Rose (Cheeks + Lips)
                                Hair -     Sandstone
                                                Burnt Sienna
                                Hat -      Amethyst
                                                Cool Grey 1
                                                Cool Grey 3
                                                Cool Grey 5
                                Dress -   Lavender
                                                Cool Grey 5
                                Wings -  Amethyst
                                Tights -  Amethyst
                                Cat -       Amethyst 
                                Bag -      Yellow
                                Stars -    Yellow

I then cut the Image out to a 
6 x 8cm rectangle.

To finish off my Card,
I added Iridescent Mauve Pink Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to her Wings and to the Bows 
on her Hat and the Cat.
And Honey Yellow Glitter
(Craft Planet)
to all the Stars.
