A little disco with my ballet please
I seem to be crafting in patterns lately. Lots of CAS in a a row and lots of pink. :-) It was time for me to showcase another cutie from Whimsy and Stars Studio and I was chomping at the bit to color up this precious little "Ballerina Teddy". You can find her right here in the Whimsy and Stars store if you'd like to color her up too. Make sure you check back here Thursday. Besides my usual Mo's card, (I can't wait to share this one with you. I was so happy with how it turned out!) I'll have another W&SS card to share plus some news about a freebie and new releases from Mabelle.
Obviously there's lots of pink on this card. I just love this pink gingham patterned paper from Michael's. I paired it up with some Bazzill called "Piglet", LOL, and my favorite Light Kraft. The postage stamp frame was cut from chipboard and covered in Picket Fence Crackle paint. After I colored the little dancer I added some white gel pen dots to her tutu on a couple of tiers and Stickles to the others. I printed out both her crown and the star on her wand separately. The crown was embossed with gold embossing powder and the star was colored with Copics and coated with yellow Stickles. I got a bit carried away with the gel pen and added dots to the photo corners and the pink panel under the fishtail banner.
I'm behind on getting around to visit you all again, but hope to get to that tonight after visiting a church member who's in the hospital. As you all know summer seems to bring on business beyond measure. :-)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Make It Monday--anything goes
Ooh La La Creations--make it girly
Tammy's Scrappin Corner--for the girls
Hybrid Chick Card Caravan--pink
Sweet Sketch Sunday--sketch
Crop Stop--pretty pearls
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
