Sweet Stampin - "In Stitches"

Today I am sharing with you my third creation as a Guest Designer for the month of April on the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog .  This week the theme is "In Stitches", which could be interpreted in a number of ways - real stitching, faux stitching or humour (having you in stitches!) I decided to create a humorous card.  The DT cards are all displayed on the Blog, do hop over there and check them out, you're sure to be inspired!

This wonderfully amusing Fairy Godmother stamp is by Butterfly Kisses - I just love her boots!

I coloured the image with Copics and ProMarkers, adding touches of clear and orange Spica glitter pens.  I masked the main image and used the stars stamp from the set to add a background.  I coloured the stars with gold Spica pen and added Crystal Stickles to her wings and crystal ball and also added Glossy Accents to the crystal ball, the glass in her spectacles and boots.

The image was cut out using a nestabilities labels die and mounted on a layer cut with a slightly larger die from the same set, using orange metallic card.  This layer was then embossed with a Cuttlebug stars folder.

The background papers are from the Papermania Persimmon Collection, the flowers were stamped on scraps of matching paper and cut out.  I finally added Faded Burlap Distress Stickles in the centre of each flower.  The ribbon on the lefthand side  is also from the Persimmon range.

I hope you've enjoyed viewing my card today and that it has inspired you to submit an entry for this week's challenge.  Just hop on over to the SSC blog for all the details.   Next saturday I will have my final SSC GDT project to share with you, I do hope you'll stop by again then.
