One for the girls!

Good evening everyone - on this historic day -sorry to all my fellow American crafters - Gordon Brown has just resigned and David Cameron is about to be announced as the new Prime Minister. Lets hope for a bit of stability.

Anyway on to happier things!!! My card today was my effort at decoupaging or paper toling Tilda - not entirely happy with it to be honest. Here is the wonky artistic view!! 


I have coloured my little Princess with Sakura Stardust gel pens and water colour pencils. I have used some Crafters Companion papers from the Boys and Girls CD Rom, printed onto pearlised paper - really pleased with how this worked out but probably doesn't show in the photos.
I used the sketch at Magnolialicios Highlights shown below...............

Now for the close up.................

I have used lace and gems from my stash and some wallpaper border for the corners!!!

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges................

Just Magnolia - It takes two - use two Magnolia Stamps (Magic Tilda and Magic Wand,

Magnolia Down Under - Paper tole,

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Dimension,

Paperplay Challenge - Stamp or digi and bling,

Papertake Weekly - Shiny, Sparkly and special,

Just Scraps - Think Pink and,

Crafty Angels - One for the Girls.

I hope you enjoy your visit and please let me know you have been - I love your comments.
