Lavender Beauty

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday :) Just gotta get through today and tomorrow and then the weekend is here, yay! :) I've got a crazy busy day at work today so I'll make my post short and sweet. I was able to get into the craft room last night and was able to create a card I didn't hate. Hopefully this is a sign that my mojo is returning :)

For my card today, I inked up one of my new images from the ching-chou kuik Fantasy Art Collection, available at Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Misty Reflections and I think she's just gorgeous. I inked the image with Memento black ink and stamped it onto PTI white cardstock. Next I colored the image with copics (Dress: V12, V14; Hair: E35, E37; Moon: Y21; Hat and Gloves: W6, W8; Cats: E13, E14, E17) and I added some lavender glitter from my Sakura glitter pen to her hat and gloves. I then cut out the image with my circle nestabilities and while the image was still in the nestabilities die, I inked around the image with Memento lavender ink. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Perfect Plum and Basic Black). My design paper is from Basic Grey's Wisteria collection. I used my Martha Stewart edge punch on the top panel of design paper. I used my SU ticket corner punch on all corners and added lavender pearls (from Michael's). For some finishing touches, I added Primas and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, a bow (the double looped bow was tied using my Bow Easy), and a hat pin which I made myself. What do you think?

Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Big Hugs, Christine
