Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card...........A Sneaky Peeky.........

Good morning my lovelies how are you all today? First I will say sorry if I didnt get round to you yesterday I will be catching up this morning before I do my DT work. I was stuck up the hospital for 4 hours yesterday I had to get undressed 4 times & into a gown in different departments......I am now the 'Fastest dresser in the North......East' lol.It really drained me & I ended up in bed when I got back in pain & shattered lol. Still no further forward but the last test I had was a CT scan so depends what the result of that will be.
Anyway onto my post which today is for Crafts & Me Challenges & this week its us 'Rockin Rubbah Girlies' bringing you an easy peasy challenge of GEMS & PEARLS.
We all love our gems & pearls dont we & dont forget it doesn't have to be a stamp that Crafts & Me carry altho we really do LOVE to see them.
Today I have a new release stamp that is due very soon & is from the lovely Jasmine-Beckett Griffith

This is 'Rose Fairy' isn't she beautiful. I used Kraft card again cus I really enjoyed doing my last card & also I pictured her with white hair for some reason lol.

The big light has broke in my craft room so my piccy's are not great so I retook them in the conservatory this morning so thats why they are different to the challenge pics.

I used a WOJ border die to give a fancy edge to the card. The twill sentiment is from Crafts & Me store.

Her skin has been coloured with Copics & all the red is a copic as well.
For the skin I used E01 E11 R20.....I dont normally use E01 but as its Kraft card it looks really nice.
Everything else was coloured with Prisma pencil & blended with sansador.
I added glitter to bits of her hair & the rose.

The flowers are a mixture from my stash & Wild Orchid Crafts.
IRL this really is beautiful & I'm really quite happy with it which really does make a change for me lol.
Please pop over here to see my DT sisters to see their beautiful creations, you never know you may find more sneaky peeks.....
Hope you can join us this week for this challenge we love hopping around seeing your wonderful creations.

Well I'm off to link up then some hopping is on the agenda to catch up with you all.

KraftyKoolKat said...

Really gorgeous card Vicky. I have made my first kraft card today but I am not happy with it. I didn't know which Promarkers to use as they came up different on kraft to what they usually do. You do it so well. Let's face it you do everything so well, if I didn't already love you I would hate you. Lol!!!! I am disappointed and very sorry they have not found any answers to your health issues sweetie.
