Tulip Dancer

Good morning everyone. A new challenge starts this morning at Crafty Girls Creations.

Challenge 15 is our usual 'Anything Goes'

Our sponsor for this challenge is

My shopping list for my card today is: -

Tulip Dancer Digi Stamp from our sponsor
A3 White card
A4 Pink card
Pink patterned paper
Wow embossing powder - sparkling spruce
Acetate for heat embossing
white detailed embossing powder
Couture embossing folder - Intrinsic
Copic marker pen

I made my plain white base card, matted and layered some pink card and more white card plus a piece of pink patterned paper. My mats were made using the noble pierced dies.
I embossed smallest using intrinsic embossing folder from couture.

My image was sized and printed out using serif craft artist.  I also took my image into the cutout studio and cut the white from the dress so I could place some pink patterned lace paper behind it and then printed and cut it out.  I coloured the rest in using copic markers.

My flowers were made using vellum, Stamping with versamark and embossing with detailed white embossing powder.  I then coloured them in on the rear using a copic marker pen finishing them off with a tiny pearl in the centre.

I stamped the leaves onto acetate suitable for heat embossing using versamark and wow embossing powder.
