Caribbean Treasure

Happy Friday Everyone,


Today I am showcasing this fabulous Sweet Pea Stamp, ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection, Sheet #10, plate #3. I know you all know by now where to get these gorgeous stamps but if there are any newbies out there, you can get it right here from Crafts and Me. I had great fun making this card. I used my really old moonglow shadow ink, Malachite, and a jack o lantern glimmer mist. I sprayed these onto a doily which gave it a wonderful goldy green shimmer, it really is beautiful.




The papers I have used are prima and I have coloured the image using copics. I have used one of the Marianne Deisgns scalloped border and threaded green ribbon through. I have also used acetate and punched out a butterfly and used peewee glitters to colour it in pink and green, again not seen very well in the photograph. I have added lots of stickles to the flowers and also the fishtale. I do love a bit of glitz!



I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Crafty Angels - My favourite things (flowers)
Incy Wincy - Magical
Pollycraft Challenge - Pink, Brown and Green
Paper Sundaes - Make a scene
Totally Gorjuss - Textutre (embossed Marianne Design border die with ribbon)
