Glamour Eyes Ladies Night - Crafting from the Heart Challenge

Good morning fellow crafters.  Hope you are all well today. Monday rolls around yet again, back to work for me and the start of a super new challenge over at Crafting from the Heart.

Our new challenge is Anything Goes/Easter Theme, our sponsors are:-

Offering a Prize of 3 digi Images

The Doodle Garden

Brilliant prizes aren't they - wish I could join myself but I have had pleasure in using a digi stamp from Glamour eyes for by DT sample, hope you like it.

My Shopping List

Glamour Eyes - Ladies Night Digi Stamp
White 8x8 card blank
White pearlescent and black card
Copics = E000|E00|E11|E29|E25|E27|E93|E04|Black
Couture embossing folder - Extra Loren
Spellbinders Adorning Squares
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Tonic flower punch
Black gems

  1. I started by colouring my digi stamp in using the above listed copic pens.
  2. I then decided on an 8x8 card and decided to stick with monochrome which makes the image stand out - I hope.
  3. I matted some black card followed by a piece of white pearlescent which I punched along the edges.
  4. Another piece of black card followed by another piece of white pearlescent card which I embossed.
  5. I diecut my image and made a faux mat in black.
  6. I then stamped my sentiment which was a stamp I have had in my stamp stash for a few years and I think was from Kanban, again die cut and made a faux mat.  My image was stamped in black versafine and clear embossed.
  7. I finished by punching out my flowers using a tonic geared punch and topped with some black gems - yes I know - gems, not something I use very often as I am a gem scrooge - hee hee.
