For what you ask??? Well in December last year Elizabeth Bell introduced us to Elphine House
- a new online shop selling Elisabeth Bell stamps and a blog run by Helen and Lew up in Brisbane Australia .!! As soon as I read this I became a follower immediately!!! I even bought a stamp "Fairy Play" very early on and to be honest never used it... She was so beautiful but I didn't think I could do it any justice by colouring it, so put it aside in my stash of stamps that is forever growing!! But over the last few days I have coloured and sparkled and created what iI think is one of the best cards I have made. The reason for this is because last week Elphine House announced that they were looking for 10 people to join their DT as Elizabeth is busy creating exclusive stamps for Elphine House!!! I knew straight away that I wanted to apply and after being successful and making the Design Team over at Paper Crafting Journey
with Lisa and the other talented DT members I thought I had a shot at this one!! Well you've gotta be in it to win it right????
So here is what I created!!!
Another angle so you can see the all the elements
Close up of the image
I coloured "Fairy Play"with my Tria Markers ( V245, R247, C119, O225, G139, O729, BL), copics (E57, E31, E02) , pearlized top coat smooch, clear atyou spica pen, and pearlized chalks.
I layered the wings three times and I wanted to give the dress a bit of life so I stamped it again and cut it so that it looked like it really was flowing!!! I was so super excited with the way it turned out that I had to share it with someone so I took a photo of it and sent it to my most talented friend Sam!! I then had the task of how to show her off!! I eventually chose to use The Sweet Stop Sketch because I thought she wouldn't be overshadowed with too many layers or embellishments!! (well I tried anyway - LOL!!)
I used some Kaisercraft SB papers and Kaszazz CS and made the flowers with those papers also. I used the Stampin Up eyelet border punch and I had to add buttons and bling!!
So what do you think... Good enough for a DT position!! Well everything is crossed so I will let you know next weekend when I will either share some exciting news or be a blubbering mess!!! LOL!!
So as well as making this card for The Elphine House
DT call I have also entered it in to the following challenges:
Until Next Time ... Enjoy!! xx
