The theme this week is 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend', so I interpreted this to be a girlie card with bling. Now, as I'm someone who likes cute and pink girlie images covered in sparkles, you can probably imagine how disappointed I was with this theme (NOT !!!). Well, I'd better get back on track to the card I've made, which uses a beautiful little Stamp Fairy image called Patsy Tooth Fairy (except I cut out the tooth part which was hanging from the cloud to leave just the fairy part!).
I've used my Promarkers to colour her in pinks, added glitter to her wings and hair bow, and used 'fluffy stuff' to create a fluffy cloud texture. I had bought the fluffy stuff at Christmas to put on snow scenes, and after Christmas I didn't think I'd use it again until I start making 2011's Christmas cards later in the year, but it is perfect for clouds too, and gives loads of texture.
The papers are from Robyn's Fetish Coney Island Summer range, and I've used my new lacey circles nesties (of course!) for both the image and the sentiment. The sentiment is one I created especially for this card, which is going to be for my M-I-L. However, if you want to have it too, then I'm happy to share it as another freebie (see below).
Please pop on over to the One Stop Craft Challenge to see what the other DT members have created for you to see, and hope you join in with the 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend' challenge this week. Most of all, have fun!
