Midway Post, Challenge #36 at Open-Minded Crafting

Post #2, 
Here is the 1st of my Open-Minded Crafting Blogs that I have missed.

The Theme at

My Project was:-
At Long Last Digi Stamp
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I started with an A4 sheet of Pearlised Champagne Card
(Ross Papers)
which I folded in half.

Next I cut a Piece of Pearlised White Paper
(Ross Papers) 
so that it fitted just inside the Card Front.
Using 6cm White Lace
(Boyes Haberdashery)
I covered the Left hand-side of the Paper.

Next I Die-Cut out the Large Ornate Frame Oval
on White Glitter Card

Next I printed off the Image twice
on White DC Paper.
coloured the Images
using my Promarker Pens.

                                          Skin                    - Vanilla/Satin/Dusky Pink
                                          Lips                    - Dusky Rose
                                          Hair Girl Left    - Cinnamon/Cocoa/Burnt Sienna/Shale
                                          Hair Girl Right  - Yellow/Sandstone/Caramel/Cinnamon
                                          Dresses              - Ivory
                                          Roses                  - Blossom/Meadow Green
I also used a Metallic Gold Gel Pen,
on the Tiara, Hairband, Ring and Bracelets.

Then I Die-Cut one of the Images out 
using the Large Ornate Frame Oval
and only using the insert.
I fussy cut out the other Image and decoupaged it up.

To handmake the Posey in the top corner,
I 1st took some of the 6cm White Lace 
and folded it in half length ways,
then I loosely stitched some thread 
through the middle and pulled it together 
which made it into a circle.
I then added 2 Pastel Pink Paper Flowers,
2 White Satin/Feather Flowers,
and 2 White Satin/Pearl Flowers.
(all flowers from my stash)
Unfortunately as I was putting it together 
one of the White Satin/Pearl Flowers fell to bits,
so instead i just placed the flower parts at the front and added a 
12mm Pearl flower to the center of it.

To add some glitz I used Holographic Embossing Powder(Papermania)
for both of the Veils.
And 3D Pearl Effects in Pastel Pink
on all of the Pearl Drops and Trim on the Righthand Girl 
and the Buttons on the Lefthand Girl.

Finally I added a 12mm Pearl Flower Gem,
and 4 x 6mm Pearls Cream Paper Rose
(both from my stash)
and placed them in the bottom right corner.
