Lil Lolita Creates 4 Fun

Since I started this blog I've found myself participating in more challenges. But  now I'm making less cards as I'm wanting to make my creations just as good as the other entrants in the challenges. I really love the way my cards look but sometimes think I don't have enough on them.. I really am a less is more kind of person so as you will notice I don't have tonnes of layers but is it enough???
Yesterday I bought Lil Lad "Frankie Frankenstein" from Tickled Pink Stamps at my boys request.. He is part of the new set of digi Lil Lolita's that was just released.
I actually had no intention, when I started making this card, of entering it into any challenges . I needed some guidance so I decided to look at the sketch from The Sweet Stop blog and start from there. As I was putting the finishing touches to it I thought I'd just have a look at what the challenge was this week at lil Lolita's Boutique challenge. And as if by fate the challenge was to use the colours purple, orange and black. So i thought what the hey, I may as well enter it. And while I was sitting at the compuetr an email came through from Create for Fun for their challenge this week and their challenge is to use a digi stamp so... bingo can enter that one too... So now that I have entered into five challenges this week I think I might finish making cards for a friend who ordered some awhile ago!!

Turned out pretty good didn't he!! You can't tell in this picture but I actually made the webs shimmer with some pearlized top coat smooch..

paper: graphic 45 and bazzill

coloured with H2O's and aquacrayons

Until next time, Enjoy!!
