Sparkle And Bling, Buds And Blooms

While I was making this card I had two challenges in mind, Allsorts where the theme is Bring On The Bling and Lavinia which is Buds and Blooms. Then I realised that I could also enter it into the Stamping Sensations challenge which is Anything Goes and My Time To Craft with No Designer Papers. I started with an 8x8 card base then cut a piece of card that would fit, about 7 1/2 inch square. I blended distress inks all over the card. Then cut out one of the files from Lavinia on the Scan N Cut. I didn't just want to put this onto the top of the blended background, so next I used a circle die from Crealies and cut a hole in the centre that I could place the cut image under. Next I stamped onto both the circle cut with the die and the background and coloured with Pro Markers. I then cut a piece of black card to matt the background onto, but before doing this I place the circle onto the black card in the middle and then placed the cut image on top. I then glittered the wings if the fairy and with foam tape on the back placed the background over the top. I finished by adding some gems from my stash.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

A super creation Sue, so effective how you have done the focal element with the circle and then all the stamping and depth of colours (using your new Ally Pally goodies I am sure) it's just perfect for our theme, many thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge this week. Also a great card for our Stamping Sensations theme this months, my thanks for joining us again.
