I'd created the background three days ago and I was just waiting for inspiration to strike and help me decide which image to use. I figured the Twinkle Bean image just suited the funky, fun background I'd created with all the layering and the use of the 5th & Frolic collection by American Crafts. Seriously, I strike gold like 9/10 times I create a card with those papers. Something about the collection just inspires me to no end.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity R#194: My Style -- I believe my style is for the most part cutesy. I've done a bit of vintage but I struggle with it. Mixed media is sometimes fun but I hate the mess! So I go with cute and layered. This card has 7 layers on top of the base card!
Crafty Catz #247: Pretty Women -- Well, my image speaks for itself. Isn't the Twinkle bean the prettiest ever? I don't have grown-up women stamps, so I hope this is allowed!
Shopping our Stash Weekly SOS #169: Who's Who -- We were to use a photograph or person image. I don't believe I have realistic photograph stamps, so I went with the person image interpretation.
Now for the card:
stamp: Twinkle Bean by The Greeting Farm
papers: card stock is Pink Pirouette by Stampin' Up and Hawaiian Shores by Papertrey Ink; patterned paper is Dear Lizzy by American Crafts, the 5th & Frolic collection.
embellishments: cartwright's sequins in lt. ocean blue green, a scrap of lace, Studio Calico wood veneer shapes
Copics used: Y0000, Y13, YG23, YG25, G00, R83. I only used the R83 and the Y13 on the hair, and through some early-morning magic it came out ridiculously awesome.
Ink- Prima in Branch Bark, which is what I had handy on my desk. I stamped a bit messily so had to fill in with E57 Copic.
I'll note I'd have used stickles if I had any :( Miss those things, man! So, I hope you liked the card. Thanks for looking!
