Charisma Muse!

Published February 15, 2009 by isisimaginings
Evening all, hope every one’s having a lovely Sunday. Before I continue I want to thank everyone who left comments on yesterday’s card. We all know that leaving comments can take quite a while, so I really appreciate those who take the time to do so. And of course, it gives me encouragement to continue. THANK YOU to everyone.

Today’s card covers two challenges & after the subtlety of yesterday, it is completely OTT! The first challenge I made this for is ‘Cupcakes’ at Charisma Cardz & secondly, at Crafty Muse, choose your favourite colour. My favourite colours are all shades of purple & pink, so initially I was going to choose purple. Then I decided that combining the challenges & using pink would make a perfect birthday card for Goddaughter No. 2, Lily, who will be five in March & she LOVES anything pink & blingy.

The image is a download from Sammi at Crafty Muse, as a thank you for taking part in her last challenge. I printed it onto watercolour paper & sprayed it with hairspray to seal the ink, (thanks to Tara for that handy hint), it worked very well & I noticed it gave the paper a very nice texture, that was great to colour.

Materials used:

  • C5 White card
  • Image – Angelique Sitting Sweet
  • Papers – Papermania sweet Nothings & Papermill
  • Ribbons – Crafty Ribbons
  • Whispers Pens
  • Flowers – Papermania & Prima
  • Cuddly Buddly Circular Sentiment stamp
  • Brilliance ink – Pearlescent Orchid
  • Crystal Lacquer pens
  • Jewelled brad, adhesive pearls, adhesive floral gems & gold peel-off – from my stash

I’ve tried to be a little more organised this week & I’ve made a list of the challenges I want to attempt. I made a card today for the Tilda challenge at DC – I’ll post it tomorrow – so I’m quite chuffed that I’ve managed to complete three challenges already. The new Magnolia v Stampavie challenge was posted earlier today & this is it……

They have chosen specific colours, but they say you can use others, as long as they come close to matching these. Full details are available on the blog. By the way, my fellow DC’er, Mina, won their challenge 12 with a stunning card. If you haven’t seen her blog before, pay it a visit, she is so talented.

That’s it from me for today. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, thanks for visiting.

Love & light.
