LOTV for Friday Sketchers

I used the Lili of the Valley challenge of Glitter and Glitz with the fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers


I used 'Little Ballerina' - isn't she a cutie? She is coloured with Copics and her skirt is liberally covered with Glamour dust. I used a mixture of Scattered Straw and Pumice Stone distress inks around the edges, on which I then gave used Tarnished Brass distress stickles - is it me or does anyone else find the distress stickles more difficult to use and take longer to dry than the ordinary ones.
The papers are some I got at the NEC in March which I've eventually persuaded myself to cut into - they are by The Paper Loft and called Grandma's House.
The flowers and leaves are cut with Crealies dies and the flower center is a Say it in Pearls by Prima. I died the lace using a mixture of Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress inks amd the ticket sentiment is a freebie by my lovely Copic Creations teamie Jama and you can find it HERE


A close up of the Little Ballerina showing the sparkle on her tutu a little better. 
This card was the devil's own to photograph - not helped by the fact I photographed it the first time around having forgotten to attach the sentiment.
If you take the flower & leaves in the bottom photograph and the ones in the top - the true colour is somewhere inbetween!!

Well folks it's weekend again - hope you all have a good one.

Great Job! This looks so good! Especially with the glitter! About the drying period of the different glitter glue.. I havent thought about it. I will try to remember what you have noticed. Fantastic Colour on this card. And the papers are lovely. The flower you have made is stunning! :)
