Truly Scrumptious DT

Time for another challenge at Truly Scrumptious and this we we have another of Mina's fabulous sketches with the extra option of embossing - any kind of embossing you like - it's up to you.

We have a fabulous prize in store for you this week from Digital Delights of a $10 voucher to spend in the store - a magical place filled with digi creations from all walks of life.

I used one of my new Hanglars (I've always loved hAnglars, but love 'em even more now I've got some - they are such a delight to colour). This little cutie is coloured with distress inks, and her wings sparkled using Stardust stickles. I cut here out and mounted her using foam on a frame cut with a Marianne creatable stencil. The pink debossed paper is from my 'bit box' and the coloured from the Crafty Individuals background paper pack - Trees. The border is cut with a MS deep punch and the flower made using the EK Success retro flower punch and Mulberry paper. I hand cut the leaves and cut the hearts using Spellbinder heart nesties. I cut several layers, stuck them together, stamped the sentiment on them (Lily of the Valley), inked the edges and covered them with crackle paint. I didn't want too much crackle effect so just used a thin layer - another experiment gone wrong - you can hardly see the crackles at all.

Distress inks used
Skin   -  Tattered Rose and Walnut stain
Clothes - Dusty Concord and Victorian Velvet
Hair  -  Vintage photo and Mustard seed
Shoes - Vintage photo

This is the fabulous sketch we worked with - check out the other DT's fabulous interpretations.

Heather, Thanks for not being perfect. As a newbie to crafting I'm struggling because I'm a little bit of a perfectionist. Someone who has been doing this a while and still occassionally has a oops moment, you make me feel that its okay to make mistakes. Thanks for the inspiration. Love the card and love the Hanglar stamp.
