Angelica The Dancer
I am so excited – my copy of a fab new cd came yesterday – its called Angelica & Friends and is from www.crafterscompanion.co.uk
It has the most amazing artwork and the images really have to be seen to appreciate just how beautiful they really are!
My printer was working overtime once I'd finished browsing together with oooos and ahhhs
In the end I opted for this image – I just know you will all want to own this cd once you see the photos!
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
8x8 white scallop card
8x8 sheet of purple scallop edge card
8x8 sheet of brown textured card
ribbon in purple dot and green with silver edging
3 handmade flowers
Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page set
Purple holographic padded dots
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
The white scallop card was folded in half then I stuck the purple scallop card to the front – the scallops don't match but I did like the almost alternate coloured scallops.
I printed a sheet of backing paper, trimmed it to size, punched the top and bottom lefty hand corners with a Martha Stewart corner punch from a punch around the page set – this one is called Cherish.
Before sticking the paper in place I taped a length of purple spotty ribbon around it – secured at the back then stuck panel to the left of the card.
I cut out the topper and measured a piece of brown textured card to fit – trimmed it them pinched the 4 corners with Cherish.
The topper was then stuck to the brown mat with double sided tape then using the same tape the mat was stuck over part of the backing paper and then pressed into place.
I found some beautiful ribbon in a moss green with fine silver edges so tied a bow and stuck that to the top left hand corner
3 beautiful handmade flowers were secured to the bottom left corner of the card
And to finish it, I added some pretty purple holographic padded circle embellishments to the corners.
Using a Sakura quickie glue pen I highlighted areas of the dress, hair bobble and ballet slippers and sprinkled with glamour dust – the dark shadow below the dancer was also glittered lightly.
Now don't you agree – this is a stunning card – made with the help of a stunning image!
I loved working with this pretty little dancer – watch out for her friends making an appearance over the next few days!!
See you again tomorrow friends!
