Catching Up

Thursday, 26 April 2012

Evening all! 
I didn't get to do a WOYWW post yesterday because I wasn't at home long enough to take a photo of my desk and there was/is nothing on there anyway!  So, hopefully I'll have something worth sharing next week.
Thanks for all your get well wishes - my tonsilitis is more or less better, I've just taken the last of my anti-biotics thankfully, I hate having to take tablets!

I'm still catching up on things from before I went on my holidays and this is the start of a few cards I need to catch up on!
It was one I sent to a friend for her birthday and was basically me trying out a few new things that I had got.  It ended up being a bit bright and busy, but I think I liked it!

The stamp is a Sweet November, Twisted Sister stamp called Jessamine.  I coloured her with copics: Skin; E21,13,00,000,R20.  Hair; E49,39,35.  Dress etc: RV29,25,21,BV08,04,00,YG17,13,11,Y06,02,00,0.
I then cut her out and attached her to the card with foam pads.  How I'd so love to have skinny legs like that!
She must've been on the Red Bull cos that's a Doohickey wing behind her.

The extremely bright and colourful paper is Basic Grey from the Lauderdale pad.  The sentiment is a Whimsy Stamps film strip sentiment and I cut it out with the matching die.  I used a Versacolour 504 Lollipop pad for the sentiment.
I used a lot of dies with this card.  As well as the doohickey I used a Go Kreate large frilly frame #2 for the card base, 2 Spellbinders wonky rectangles and a Leabilities frame swirl.
I finished off with some ribbon from my stash and a few Swarovski's.

For the inside I used the wonky rectangle dies again and the sentiments are LOTV postmarks and a Wild Rose Studio.  And a few more Swarovski's, cos I thought it just wasn't busy enough!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
