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!
