golden angels

This is my card with an angel for the bubblyfunk challenge. I'm not sure i like the colouring on the angels dress- it's come out a bit too orange so may have another play leter with different colours of glitter pens.

fluttering fairies

I made this card for my nieces first birthday. The fairy stamps are from two different packs of stamps by 'Red Hot Bed'. they have been coloured with glitter pens to give them a fairy shimmer.
The paper letters were from a pack from qvc and I inked the white letters with lilac ink and then embossed them twice using holographic embossing powder.

Silver silhouette

I made this card for a challenge on a forum with the theme of 'silhouettes'.

I initially used silver mirror card for the background but thought it looked too 'shiny' when finished so I took all the card to pieces and changed it to a piece of matt silver card. I also did the image again as it was starting to rub off the black paper-it is stamped with an embossing ink pad and then I used silver cosmic shimmer powder over the image- after wiping over the image lightly to remove any stray flecks i sprayed it with hair spray and there is no more smudging!

It doesn't show up too well in the photo but the powder creates a lovely shimmery silver which is similar to a foiled rub-on
