I hope you're all well and keeping warm - there's so much snow all over the place but thankfully we seem to be avoiding it this time! There was talk of us getting some over the weekend but the threat seems to have moved over a bit and is missing us. I'm sure it would've been nothing like the amount in the US! Wow, that's a lot of snow! Stay safe if you're affected.
Anyway, I have to shout a bit Happy Birthday to my wee sister Rachael who's turning Sweet 16 today! I know she's having a good birthday weekend but I only ever wish the best for her - love her to bits!
So it's new challenge time for the Pink team at Eclectic Ellapu and guess what? It's my turn to host and as it's my wee sisters birthday today I decided to go for the theme...
Here's what I did...
I used several Magnolia stamps - Not sure what you call the Tilda but she's sitting on Love Muffin. I used the masking technique and I stamped with Memento Desert Sand - I have wanted to try the stamping with a light coloured ink technique for a while and that is the lightest coloured ink I have. I coloured them with the following Copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E49,39,37,35. Etc; RV13,11,10,BG02,000,0000,YG95,93,91,E33,31,30,W3,1,00.
The card is a large 8"x8" card from Craftwork cards and my papers are First Edition, Spring Feast. They are from a 6"x6" pad so I quilted 3 patterns from the pad to fit the card. I made the 3 lollipops by cutting circles of card and covering in super sticky tape, I then got the ribbon and tied a knot at the end, trimming close to the knot and sticking it in the centre of the circle, the ribbon coming from the knot I then twisted and wrapped in a spiral til I got to the outter edge of the circle and adhered the loose end on the back. I then painted 3 wooden toothpicks with white paint and attached to the back. The tag and lace banner are both Magnolia stamps with computer generated sentiments. Some more ribbon and baubly ribbon from my stash and card candy with gems complete the card.
The inside, as always, matches the front.
So go have a look at what the rest of the DT did at Eclectic Ellapu - they've produced some stunners this week, as they do every week! lol!
