New Challenge #144 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi everyone,
Well not sure what the rest of the world is like at the moment,
but we are having a heatwave over here in Sunny England.
I think I have been well and truly cooked this week,
and that is without trying.

Well I officially have my Open Day
for College in August,
all ready for me to start my Course in September.
 I am so looking forward to it,
I can't wait.

Now here's a little Something for all you Crafters
These two amazing and lovely Ladies,
Debbie and Linda are having a Crafty Weekend.

(you may recognise them if you are a G'n'S regular)
Please go visit their Page 
and see all their wonderful creations, and leave a little love.
Hopefully you will want to go join them at The Lindum Hotel
for the Craft Weekend.

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Ike's Art who are offering

Lacy Sunshine who are offering

My Project this
week is:-
Far East Enchantress Digi Stamp
(our sponsor)

To begin with I used a Pre-cut White Card
which I covered with Turquoise Glitter Card
and cut out the corners following the Base-Card Design.
on the Inside of the front I placed Marbled Pink Paper
so that you could see it through the cut-outs.

Next I Die cut out some Salmon Pink Card
and the Oriental Dragonfly Paper
(which I found in a Paper-tray which was gifted to me)
using the 10.3cm and 9.5cm Circle Dies

Next I printed the Image out

  on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens
                                                           Satin                   - Skin
                                                           Blush                  - Cheeks
                                                           Almond              -Fans/Wrap
                                                           Putty                  - Skin
                                                           Pale Pink           - Wrap
                                                           Salmon Pink      - Blossom Flowers
                                                           Rose Pink          - Blossom Flowers/Lips
                                                           Magenta            - Blossom Flowers/Lips
                                                           Sandstone          - Bamboo Sticks
                                                           Caramel             - Bamboo Sticks
                                                           Meadow Green - Leaves
                                                           Pear Green        - Leaves
                                                           Marsh Green     - Leaves
                                                           Pastel Green      - Dress
                                                           Turquoise           - Dress
                                                           Marine                - Eyes/Dress
                                                           Ice Grey 1          - Hair
                                                           Ice Grey 2          - Hair
                                                           Ice Grey 4          - Hair
                                                           Ice Grey 5          - Hair
                                                           Black                   - Eyebrows/Hair
Then I fussy cut the Image out and placed it in the Circle.

To make my Fan I used a 2 x 12cm Strip of Cherry Blossom Paper
(Japanese Pattern - Digital Magic Shop)
and folded concertina style in 0.5cm folds.
Then I pinched one end together and bound it with String.
 Using 5mm Turquoise Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
 I wrapped a piece around the handle
then Handmade a small Bow with long ends to go on the top.
then I just Fanned the Top edge out.

I have some Iridescent White Flower Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
which I cut 4 individual Flowers from 
and placed on the Card.

To add some sparkle I added some
 Holographic Mint Green Glitter
(Glitter Magic) 
to the Belt and Under-layer of the Skirt
And finally some 3mm AB White Pearls
to the center of each Flower and the Bow.

I'd like to enter this Card in the
