Walk Like An Egyptian!

Monday, 11 November 2013

Good morning everyone!
I hope you're all well?  I can cross 2 bumps from the current baby boom off my list since my last post!  My cousin had her gorgeous wee boy (although we knew it was going to be a boy) and my best friend had her wee baby last Thursday and I'm very excited to say that she had a beautiful wee girl!  Yay!  I can finally get to make a pink card! lol!  Everyone else so far has had boys so it's nice for a change!  Just one more cousin (that I know of!) still to go but she's not due until February - oh and my lovely neighbour will go before that!  It's hard to keep up!

Anyway, we have a new challenge for you today at Seems A Little Sketchy and we are being sponsored this fortnight by the fabulous Whimsy Stamps!


Here's the sketch for this challenge


And here's my card using the sketch...

My image is Jackie by Tiddlyinks and I've coloured her with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; 100,C10,8,6. Dress; B26,24,YR24,23,21. Background; E43,42,41,40. Sky; B01,00,000,0000. and I used a Sakura gelly roll metallic gold pen in a few place too.

I haven't used any design papers on this, instead I made my own using a swirly stamp by Umount and some antique gold frantage powder.  I used a blue ink pad and holographic embossing powder on the gold panel and I used gold and blue glitter to make the stripy panel by laying strips of DS tape onto a piece of card and then removing the backing of alternate strips before applying one of the glitters, then making sure to clean off as much of the glitter as possible I removed the rest of the backing and applied the other glitter.  I really liked the effect!  A few little golden pearls were also added to the card.

The sketch has been repeated on the inside of the card.

So that's my card, I do hope you can join us and make sure you check out the rest of the DT's work as well as having a look at the blog, it's had a facelift!  And looks gorgeous!  Check it out at Seems A Little Sketchy!
