Are You as Graceful As..

TWINKLE TOES?!?! I can tell you I am NOT - I think I missed the graceful gene!! OK is she not the cutest thing?!

For this sketch I used Lauren's mytimes20 sketch; it was the perfect layout for twinkle toes

I stamped the image on Gina K Pure Luxury CS and cut the image with my nesties circle then mounted it on a nesties scallop circle in SU's Chocolate chip. The DS paper is Basic Greys Eva and it is mounted on SU's chocolate chip, layered on SU's Pink Pirouette which is embossed with Swiss dots and layered on SU's chocolate chip cs.

I coloured the image with copics BUT I paper pieced her dress. The bottom layer of the skirt is the pink from the Basic Grey and then I cut the top and part of the skirt from the other Basic Grey paper I used on the card. I wanted to have her skirt floating and fluttering as if she is moving & I have to say I am really happy with how it turned out! On her wings I painted Bella liquid glitter. On her antenna's I used silver stickles to give them glitter and dimension. I added some Chocolate Primas and Cotton Candy Bon Bons.

For the inside I used a piece of SU's pink pirouette and added 2 larger photo corners punched in the Basic Grey DS paper with SU's photo corner punch.

This is a true girly girl card - now I just have to find the right girly girl who is graceful like twinkle toes!

Thanks for stopping by -
