It's time for this week's challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge, and the theme this week (Challenge #72) is "On The Move." This challenge will run from 8:00 AM March 23 to 6:00 PM March 29, and the prize for the winner will be 2 individual digi images (NOT SETS) from Pink Gem Designs. So do head on over and see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have created, then join us, won't you? We'd love to see you!
My card today uses the digi stamp Faye with Dandelion. Isn't she cute? I've colored her with Copics and used several colors of glitter pens on the hearts on her dress, the butterflies and the dandelion. But first I stamped the base layer with a flourish stamp to add a bit of pattern under the other layers.
For the center of the dandelion, I've used a metal bead cap which I flattened and topped with a rhinestone. I edged the wings with glitter.
Here you can see the shimmery hearts and butterfly hearts (and wing glitter) a little better. I love glimmer and shimmer and anything sparkly. I also shined up the heart in her hair with Glossy Accents.
I wrapped the narrow layer with baker's twine and tied it into a triple bow, then attached two tiny tags and the tiny butterfly. A little stitching on this and the next larger layer completes this card.
Thank you so much for joining me, and I hope you'll pop by A Gem of a Challenge to play along. Be sure to visit our talented Design Team to gather some inspiration!
