Sweet Pea Stampers DT Card...............Mirima

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all? Can you believe its Friday another weekend is upon us....the weeks are really zooming by........I dont think we are getting 7 days you know, I'm always running out of time of things so we musn't be lol.
Anyway we have a new challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers this fortnight & its my favourite this fortnight can you guess??       MONO... yep this is my fave theme I love it & most of the time when I do it I go for the greys & I've inked up another beautiful stamp by Elaine Cox & this is now my 2nd favourite Sweet Pea I soooooo enjoyed colouring this, she is shown as grey when you see her in the shop & boy does it suit she is.......

This is 'Mirima' & OMG she is so beautiful, you can of course buy her from Sweet Pea Stamps.
She is available singly but when you see the set of 4 you will want the whole set believe me!!!

I distressed all paper edges & tore in places & in the top right corner I added black leather lace from my stash.

If you click on this image hopefully you will see some of the sparkle. I applied a spica pen to her eyes & hair & a black spica pen to her eyelashes. I also added diamond stickles here & there.

Here she is close-up. She has of course been coloured with copics, colours are.....
C00 C01 C02 C03 C05 C07

The frame was cut out using a marianne die & then sprayed with diamond glimmer mist & sprinkled with glitter & once dry excess carefully brushed off.

Papers are 8x8 'Paris Nights' by GCD & Websters Pages, black magnolia tulle flower, brads, silver corner, velvet ribbin, black lace. Flowers & butterflies cut using punches.
Well thats it from me but please pop on over here to see my fab teamies creations they are all stunning.
Look forward to seeing all your fabulous sweet pea creations & dont forget that you can enter using Crafty Purple Frog images.
Well I have lots of catching up to do on my commenting so I will see ya soonies peeps.

Angela said...

Hun, you are too hard on yourself. Your work is outstanding. Your coloring, papers, layout, embellishments, just everything is perfect. I think you need to take another good hard and long look at your creations and realize just how awesome your creations are and that you are just as good as the next crafter. I love all your creations and you are an inspiration to me, plus I am jealous of your HUGE craft room. One day I will share mine. And believe me it is nothing to brag about as it is in my kitchen and the rest of my storage is in my Utility/Laundry room. I hope you are doing better and have a great weekend hun.

Angela said...

Oh I forgot to mention how much I love the black and white coloring you did on this and the paper you chose goes PERFECT with her and your coloring.
