You are fabulous, darling!

Oh, do I love today's card? I'm not sure why exactly. Maybe it's because I've been itching to ink up the new stamp I bought with my winnings, from Stamping Bella. Or, that I've been waiting for an image to shout 'aqua' so that I can sharpen those two shades of said colour, that have been sitting, ignored, for weeks! I think the main reason is that I am just pleased as punch with how it turned out. Here she is, from the collection of Lulu stamps.......Ida......


Now, you can't really tell from the photo, but this fine lady has just the right amount of glitter to make her sparkle. Here's a closer look........

Don't you just love those glasses......Dame Edna Everidge.....remember her/him (whatever!)? Anyhow, I thought I'd hunt down a sketch challenge, so the layout for this card is based on a sketch by Ger over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp, for challenge #37. She will of course, also be making an appearance on Bellarific Friday for this weeks 'stitching' challenge (faux or the real thing!). I'll let you into a little secret.....I had every intention of doing my bestest, proper sewing on this card, but got so carried away with the excitement of creating.......I stuck it all together and forgot! It wasn't until I was uploading the photo to my PC, that I realised what the challenge actually was. Hence.......out came my fine line brown marker and ruler......'faux' stitching it is!

Ida was coloured with the usual Prisma pencils and Copics for skin. I did colour over her hair with a black marker, to ensure it was evenly inked. I also glittered parts of her parasol, dress and flowers with superfine glitter.

She will also be sashaying her way, cause I can't imagine her doing anything else, into the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant - challenge #84 the colour aqua, DP and embellishments of your choice

Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog - #44 Stitching

The Crafty Calendar Challenge - #12 Blue and flowers

Little Red Wagon - #47 Glitter

Creative Inspirations - challenge #79 Use 2 or more stamped images

Thanks for stopping by.
