Girls, girls, girls

Hello Folks. 
How are we all today. I hope you survived the awful storms we had yesterday. Had a very early start on Saturday morning - rudely woken up at 3.30am by thunder and lightening. Gave me extra craft time though. Every cloud and all that.
The challenge at I love Promarkers this week is girls, girls, girls and here is my card for the challenge - 
Of course as it is a girly challenge it had to be pink, glittery and a Scruffy Little Cat stamp. I began by embossing a 7 and half square of white centura pearl with an Embossalicious flower power embossing folder and inked the edges with spun sugar distress ink.I then matted it onto a piece of hot pink centura pearl paper. I cut 2 Tonic squares from the Scruffy Little Cat pastels paper pack and again matted them onto hot pink centura pearl paper. I arranged these onto the embossed panel as shown. I then added some ribbon and lace (from the Ribbon Girl) to the card and attached it to a 8 inch card blank which I had inked with spun sugar distress ink.
As I said the image is from Crafter's Companion's Scruffy Little Cat range and is called Louise. I coloured her with the following Promarkers - 

  • hair - terracotta, burnt orange and burnt umber
  • skin - satin, blush, dusky pink and coral
  • lips - pink lobster and bender pen
  • eyeshadow - fresh bloom and blossom
  • eyes - arctic blue
  • dress - blossom, peony, fuchsia pink, pink lobster and cool grey 1
  • flowers - pink lobster and cool grey 1
  • accessories - cool grey 1, pink lobster, april shower, icicle, fresh bloom, blossom, pink lobster and maroon
  • shadow - cool grey 1 and cool grey 2
  • sky - pastel blue

I added glitter to the image and cut it out with a Spellbinder's Grand decorative oval. I inked whist still in the die with spun sugar distress ink, then matted it onto a larger grand oval cut from hot pink centura pearl paper and attached it to the card base with foam pads.
The sentiment is from the stamp set and I stamped it onto a piece of white centura pearl. I cut it out using Spellbinder's A2 tranquil moments, inked whilst still in the die with spun sugar distress ink and attached to the card with foam pads.
To finish I added some pearls which I coloured with a pink lobster Promarker.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - - week 228 - girls, girls, girls

Many thanks for stopping by and reading my blog
