- 5" x 7" white card stock
- SU 'Perfect Plum' backing card
- mauve spotty paper by Pink Petticoat, which came free with this month's Quick Cards Made Easy magazine
- image by LOTV, a pre-coloured one from their 'Fairies' Art Pad, these are brilliant for super fast images - all I did after die cutting then layering the image onto hand cute 'Perfect Plum' card was to 'tickle' her mahoosively long wings with 'Cherry Ice' Stickles
- the 'belly band', as Elizabeth calls it, was a couple of snippet strips of plum and white card, punched with Martha Stewart's 'Traditional Scallop' edge punch then run through the Cuttlebug using a 'Swiss Dots' folder, also by Cuttlebug
- bwahahaha, and then I promptly covered almost all the detail on the 'belly band' with the image and bright pink spotty ribbon! The bow is one of those folded ones I've been making a lot of lately, with a couple of 'tails' added underneath and a large mauve sparkly gem on top. Folded bows (does anyone know the proper name please?) are great for ribbon which is patterned on one side and plain on the other 'cos it takes away the rolling round the floor and wrestling trying to arrange it so only the patterned front shows
- the sentiment is by Hero Arts, from their 'Good Friends' set - stamped in SU 'Perfect Plum' and then die cut with a fancy flourish labels die
- final touch was a few bright pink gems. These days I do prefer pearls or Josy Rose nail heads but have an indecent amount of self-adhesive gems to use up here
I'm entering this card into the current 'Lili's Little Fairies' challenge, where the inspiration is this beautiful photo:
I bet most of us can remember trying out cosmetics and such as a child. When I was aged just turned 10 years old we moved to Singapore for three years. For various reasons there were problems with British Forces flights on the day we were due to fly, and Mum, Dad and myself were 'bumped' onto a BOAC flight (that shows me age!). The flight took a total of FOUR days, with numerous stops and overnight stays in exotic places and extremely grand hotels - quite an experience. But, what tickled me most of all was when I went to the loo in the aeroplane for the first time - it was like walking into a cosmetics shop. Bottles and bottles of Elizabeth Arden smellies, loads of fancy soaps, talc - you name it! I was in absolute heaven.
I was away for AGES, apparently Dad was just about to raise the alarm, and then I reappeared and 'sashayed' down the aisle back to where were were sitting. As I passed you could almost see the clouds of perfume billowing round me - I'd tried out EVERY single one :) Phew!
Have a nice day!
