Emma with Sparkle and Glitz at Dies to Die for

Happy Friday everyone, it's the weekend tomorrow, yay! I plan on recharging my batteries with a bit of a lay in and some crafting time.

I have another Saturated Canary design from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps to share and I've coloured up Emma again, but whereas last time she was soft and subtle, today she has some zing in her step.

She's stamped on to some Fabriano watercolour paper and coloured with a mix of Distress Ink pads and markers and some Inktense Pencils, I've popped the colours further down for you. I cut her out with the MFT Pierced Ovals Stax.

The gorgeous, gorgeous papers are by Glitz, and called Hoopla.  Green isn't a colour I usually use much, but I do love a pop of acid lime green and against the black and white I thought that these were so striking.

They've been edged with Black Soot distress ink and hand stitched with top stitch thread.

The beautiful butterfly is from Karla's Kreative Korner and the bling, which I've coloured to match with my Copics, is from the Handcrafted Card Company.

All the ribbon and lace is from The Ribbon Girl, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Colours used:
Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Fired Brick
Hair: Black Soot
Clothing: Shabby Shutters, Black Soot used with Sherbet Lemon Inktense Pencil
Background: Shabby Shutters

I smothered her dress with Glamour Dust to make her sparkle and shimmer.

I've decorated the inside to match up with the front and with plenty of room for a message.

This card is for sale in my Etsy shop

  16. I really like black and green colour combination. But I'm always scared to use these two colours - black because I am affraid my card/project will turn out too dark and green because it's not my favourite colour. But you totally rocked this colour combination. Your creation is fabulous! hugs! xx

  17. Absolutely stunning. And I see it's already gone from your shop too!
