I've just noticed that my camera angle has cut off part of the right side of the card too.........there is a strip of black and layered with a strip of the same washi paper used on the dress. I'm not sure if I can explain this, but the strip I just mentioned is on the inside of the card - approx 3/4 of an inch has been cut from the card front so you can see the strip on the inside (except you cant see it, because of my camera angle!)
There is so much work in this card, Marie has even hand cut the red and black frames around the image!
Thanks so much for thinking of me Marie, I just love your card!

Apologies that I haven't posted anything for over a week, but I have a card to upload later.........just need to take a photo, and run a few errands first. I'll be back.............said in my best Arnie voice!

I figured that most girls like pink, fairies and bling though, so that's why I made this card.........I also wanted an excuse to use my new Cuttlebug folder with the polka dots, and figured it would be good for a 'girly' card. The image is called Tinkerabella and is by Stamping Bella, so is the greeting. I've coloured Tinkerabella with markers and added KindyGlitz as highlights.
Thanks for looking, hope you didn't get blinded by the neon pink!
Also, I've had several emails asking me what company's stamp I used, it's a Magenta stamp. Sorry, I should've put that in the original post.

I'd like to say it was all my own design, but I did see a card posted recently that featured a peacock with the same Cuttlebug textile embossing folder background. I think the card was on the TJ artwork group, so if anyone knows whose card it was please let me know so I can give them credit.
I've used a TJ technique from the Feb newsletter called Pencilled Twinks, and I do like this technique very much. The background is my take on the TJ Aged Metallic technique. You probably cant see the shimmer too much from the photo, but IRL it just sparkles!
Hope you like this card as much as I do.

The background for the stamped piece is a TJ technique from the Dec. 07 newsletter - Technicolor Dye Inks. The background under this layer is just a Twinkling H2O watercolour background done on canvas paper, which has a great texture to it. I've added brads, a butterfly gem and sewed lace down the left side of the background panel, then adhered it all to a black card.
