- 6" x 6" square white card stock
- stamped image - LOTV 'Moonlight Wishes' coloured using Aqua Markers
- lilac pearlised 'Centura' card from Hobbycraft
- lilac 'clouds' paper and purple glitter paper from snippets
- ribbon, with the wire removed, from stash (originally bought from Hobbycraft)
- finishing touches to the image done at home were Glamour Dust on the moon then Lemon Ice stickles on the stars and the holes and what looks a bit like moon dust. I couldn't find a perfect match for the bobble on this little cutie's hat so I mixed a little squidge of two Stickles on paper - Starry Night and Strawberry Ice.....maybe I need to get out more! Mind you, I never apply Stickles straight onto an image anyhow, I'm much too clumsy so a little blob is always squeezed onto paper and then picked up with a very thin paintbrush - it works for me anyhow :) Oh, and some teeny touches of Anita's Glaze were popped onto the holly berries too. Yup, definitely need to get out more!
- almost forgot, and gold Josy Rose stars shaped nailheads.
As snippets were such a life saver - and it's a couple of weeks since I've been into the playground I'm entering this into Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge Week 45.
Saturday today - yippee. I have to quickly make a box and then race out to post a birthday card this morning that I struggled with for ages yesterday - I'll have to go to our Sorting Office so that's a nice little drive. Last minute panics as usual!
Finally - thank you so much Sandra (H) for hopping back into Friday Feast yesterday evening to say that the Sausage Cider Hotpot was a hit! How quick is that huh - and Kathleen's following comment did make me grin - something along the lines of 'Huh, so Sandra keeps a pint of cider handy'!! Truth be told, we always have some cans of cider here too - it's a refreshing drink is my excuse - but I did mean to offer a tip yesterday. The cans don't come in 600ml sizes but if you look in the bottled ciders section in your local supermarket there's normally a glass bottle of dry cider around 660ml on offer - 60 ml for the cook!!
Have a super weekend - and have a fun time whatever you're doing!
This is so pretty. I love LOTV stamps. My new ones have arrived so I hope to start using them this weekend.I have a little booklet of pink and lilac Christmas papers that's a freebie from a magazine many moons ago. I didn't think I would ever use it, but I have.ReplyDelete
What a pretty card, Di - love this and I love purples of any shade, lol. Lovely colouring - at least you made some use of your holiday, lol xReplyDelete
Well that's a coincidence Di . . . I coloured this little cutie in yesterday afternoon! Haven't made it into a card yet though. LOVE what you've made. GORGEOUS.ReplyDelete

Such a pretty card, beautiful colors and a gorgeous stamp, its all really lovely :)ReplyDelete
So pretty and lovely colour combo Di. x JoReplyDelete
Hello again Di, twice in one day :) Lovely card - the purple/lilac combo is pretty. I did exactly the same when I went on holiday - took the stamped images and pens but didn't think about the papers I was going to use - still it's good exercise for this aged grey matter :) Great tip for using stickles - I have been know to destroy a perfectly nice card with a splodge of the stuff!

Sooooo pretty and in my fav colours too :-)ReplyDelete
ps just been with M to buy her wedding dress :-) I'm soooooo excited now :-)
Hello my Little Pixie friend! I'm alive. What a lovely card and that sparkle is awesome! Sounds like you have a busy day ahead. My week was crazy! It's one thing to decorate but to take pictures of everything as you go along (rotten lighting day and nite), crop and fix the pictures and then post about it is a feat in itself. Throw a travelling husband which makes for difficulty hauling all the heavy boxes by yourself, a birthday and a ton of other things, there wasn't much time to post. I was freaking....thanks for caring! ((hugs))ReplyDelete
Glad my comment made you laugh as it was supposed to, hope Sandra had the same reaction or I am in trouble again.ReplyDelete
I try to do the same get the papers first then colour the image but isn't it a b, when you don't. But you have done really well with this one, it is fab, great image, coloured beautifully and matched with great snippets.
Hi. It's me again. I am just getting around to responding to all the kind responses I had to my question about storing pens. I did follow your links. Your contact is not making any more racks at the minute until they find a new manufacturer because they weren't happy with the quality. It is an excellent rack though a bit big for copics which are considerably slimmer than promarkers. But I could have used it all the same, as I have quite a mix of both makes. But she is going to mail me if she does get them again. So thanks for your help. In the meantime I will try to find a space to store my current box on its side. Kate xReplyDelete
Hi Di, Your card is just so beautiful the image is gorgeous! and thank you for commenting on my blog l did however have that bottle of cider in and it was something my son drinks so he's not going to be best pleased knowing l used it in the cooking....lol it was well worth it as it was lovely l'll be making it again and l too laughed at Kathleens comments she's so lovely:) Sandra HReplyDelete

Thank you for sharing in the snippet playground this week.

For one that was unplanned she turned out beautifully. Mind you, I've had panics before when I've realised that I've got no papers to go with the image I've just coloured too, good excuse to go out and buy more!!ReplyDelete
Ahhh such an adorable image and coloured beautifully. Love the colour combo and layout.ReplyDelete
