Challenge #145 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi everyone,
Well its been a while since I have managed to have
enough time to do my Blogs
so there are a few for you to catch up on.

We have had a few family issues to deal with,
which have settled down now but
the outlook is not good,
so we just have to make the most
of each day while they last.

The Theme at
Summer Sunshine

My Project this
week was:-
Nature Flower Fairy Digi Stamp
from SLS Lines
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I used a Pre-cut Scalloped Square White Card
Then I cut out a square of Pearlised Purple Card
(Ross Paper),
and around the edges I used a Double Loop Punch
(Martha Stewart).
Next I cut out a square of Pearlised Yellow Card,
which I Embossed with Lace Frame - Delicate
(X-Cut - XCU515908).

Next I printed the Image out
  on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens
                                                           Satin                   - Skin
                                                           Blush                  - Cheeks
                                                           Putty                  - Skin
                                                           Soft Lime           - Hair/Dress/Leaves
                                                           Lemon                - Hair/Dress/Wings
                                                           Lime Zest          - Hair/Leaves
                                                           Lush Green       - Leaves
                                                           Leaf Green        - Leaves
                                                           Bright Green     - Leaves
                                                           Orchid                - Flowers/Wings
                                                           Amethyst           - Flowers/Wings/Eyes
                                                           Warm Grey 1    - Wings

Then I Die-Cut the Image out with Royal Frame
Around the Outside of the Frame I used 
Light Purple Decorative Chalk,
and on the Inside of the Rectangle where the Image is
I used Light Green Decorative Chalk

To make the Sentiment I cut out a 
Rectangle of Pearlised Purple from the left over scraps
and used a 5mm Corner Punch on the Corners
Then using Holographic Silver
(my Scrap Box)
I used a Happy Birthday Die
(Joanna Sheen).
And placed it on the top left-hand Corner

Next I got half an A5 Sheet of Plain Vellum
and using 2 Flower Stamps
(Indigo Blu)
I Stamped them out with Watermark Ink
and Heat Embossed with 
Sparkling Snow Embossing Powder
Then fussy cut each Flower out
and placed a 5mm AB Light Purple Gem
in the center of each Flower.
And then I added 1 Large and 1 Small Flower 
to each of the bottom corners.

 Next I handmade a Bow using 1omm Purple Satin Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery)
and added it to the top right corner.

Finally I added a bit of Sparkle to my Card
by adding some Iridescent Mauve Pink Glitter 
around the edge of the Image,
and Chameleon Glitter to the Wings
(both from Glitter Magic)
