My Paper World sketch #8 & Papertake Weekly



I made this card following the latest sketch from Nicola at My Paper World. Papertake Weekly challenge this week is glitter. The image is from Sugar Nellie and was stamped in black Staz-on and coloured in with watercolour pencils. I then used Stickles in Crystal to highlight her necklace. You will need to clikc on the image to be able to see the glitter I think. The background paper is from The English paper Company. I cut a mat of lilac Bazzill cardstock and laid this across the paper, following the sketch. I took a light pink inkpad round the edges of the image and mounted it to the card with foam pads. Finally I added two primas with some purple gems in the centre and three gems down the side of the Bazzill cardstock mat. This is another new stamp and I love it.
