USUALLY THE CHALLENGES WILL BE FORTNIGHTLY, BUT THIS ONE ONLY LASTS A WEEK!!
Ok, on to my card at last!
The image is Melinda with a Basket of Muffins from Whiff of Joy's Guardian Angels set. I was very wicked this month and indulged in some new stamps - well, there are sales to take advantage of! So this is the first time I've inked this Melinda, and I must say she was a joy to colour with Promarkers. I smothered her wings with Icicle stickles!
I cut her out and popped her on foam pads on an oval cut with a Nestie, and I distressed the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
The papers are Basic Grey Nook and Pantry, the heart shaped gems are from stash, the ribbon is recycled from a set of bath bubbles I got for Christmas, the flowers are Wild Orchid - except for the green 'leaves' under the smallest roses, which are Prima. I dabbed some magenta glitter glue here and there on the flowers, but it isn't showing up very well!
I've made this card for my daughter, who makes delicious cupcakes - and leaves splashes of icing on the tiles, the counter, the floor, the sink... She's very enthusiastic!
Ok, thanks for looking, and do hop over to the Challenge blog to see what my teamies (it's still a thrill to say that!!) have created, and I hope you'll join in.
Thanks for looking!
luv, Mags x
