Oh So Pretty

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are we all? 

I have been super busy at the moment decorating (well buying all the bits and doing a lot of shopping not so much of the decorating) me and my hubby always like to take on a lot, and we decided it would be fun to redecorate our whole house from top to bottom - I think the only room that isn't getting touched is the kitchen and even that might get a fresh lick of paint over it. All this as well as my DT commitments, family commitments, college commitments and my hubby doing over 50 hours in over time whilst he is on call, along side is normal 40 hour week. - You can say things have become a bit manic in my household. 

Anyway enough about that! 

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Fab n Funky and this week it is the Fab Team, and Pat has picked a really great theme of 


Our challenge has been sponsored by the talented Lacy Sunshine stamps, and the design team were lucky enough to be able to pick an image each. 

I started by picking my design "Fressia Flower Pot Pretties"

As this was a digital image I took it into my Cameo software and then downloaded a fantastic design from Birds Cards I decided on "Swirly Frame 7"

I resized this to fit the image, printed the image and then cut the design out. 

I coloured the image in using Promarker pens and Graph it pens (but I forgot to write down which ones - sorry)

I inked the background with a "teal" momento back- though when you spray it with water it goes a lovely blue colour

I added a ribbon, some gems, some glitter to my hair, and liquid pearls around the image, to finish it I added a sentiment that I stamped and embossed using Silver embossing powder, I cut this out with a nestability, and that was that done. 

The Card -

The challenges I am going to enter this into are:
Paper Make Up Stamps - Digi Makeover - Anything Goes #139- 12/05

That is it for me for today, 

Thanks for stopping in.
