Gossmere

I made this card for Tiddly Inks Challenge blog's Bring On the Bling Challenge. And I just realized that the deadline is today. Yeah, I actually checked this time! So I decided I'll have do my Tuesday post on Monday evening... =)

I used Gossmere for my card. She is the gothic princess. I love the little skulls on her crown, hair pins and on her staff/wand. Cute! =)

For the bling, I made the background with Hero Arts' Starburst Lace stamp using the technique that Joy showed here. I spritzed the inks with water+ Perfect Pearls for a beautiful shine. It was made for another project, but I thought the shine from the Perfect Pearls fits this challenge. The background is really pretty in person, but I couldn't get the Perfect Pearls to show up better in the photo. Thanks for the wonderful technique, Joy! =) I also smeared some Star Dust Stickles on the ground just around Gossmere.

I am not so sure about the sentiment though. I might switch it when I need to send this card out. Any suggestions for a fitter sentiment?

You can find more cute and fun digital stamp designs at Tiddly Inks! They are going to have a 30% off sale tomorrow and I am so excited!! I'll be picking up some cute stamps for sure! =)

Hope you have a wonderful Monday evening and a beautiful Tuesday, my friends!

ok, the very first thing i thought when i saw this was "WHAT A BRILLIANT SENTIMENT"!!! seriously. b/c #1--*WHO* would not want to open their mail and read that (?!!) and #2--it works for every occasion...or NO occasion!!! you are a genius! :)

and i may have slightly exaggerated when i said the FIRST thing b/c OF COURSE i saw that ♥AMAZING♥ sparkly background and the fabulous way you've colored the stamp so it totally looks 3-D & the glittery snow the princess is standing on!!!

btw, have i mentioned that ♥YOU'RE♥ a star??! ;)
