Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving!! Our challenge this week was to use buttons. We could just use one or however many we wanted.
Atlantia is such a pretty stamp, I feel like I didn't do her justice. My granddaughter's birthday is in a couple of weeks. She will be 5 years old and we all know how little girls like fairies and princesses. As other 5 year olds she likes lots of glitz. I stamped and embossed the image and colored her with Copics. Her hair was highligted with Gold Inspiration. I also used the inspiration on her belt. Atlantia's wings and pearls were painted with frost white Shimmerz. I used stickles on her wings and the flowers in her hair, added little gems on the edge of her gown and painted around the entire image with twinkling H2O. I just happen to have a green heart button for the challenge and went with the CTMH dp just perfectly.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Friday Sketchers - Sketch
Kaboodle Doodles - Use buttons, bow and bling
Creative Inspirations Wednesday - Sparkle
Creative Card Crew - Favorite things - for me that would be sparkle
The inside is pretty basic and simple. I used nestabilities for the scallop circles and outlined each one with a gem. The sentiment is a Pink Cat Studio - Fairy Friends. Susana has this stamp set on sale right now at a 20% discount.
Please go to the store blog and check out the other DT samples. They are super fabulous.
Thank you for stopping by. I wish all of you a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING !!!
