I used my oval nesting dies around my image and my favorite corner die, which are both by Quik Kutz.
I colored my image with Copics and used Star Dust Stickles accenting her wings. I used a pearlescent pen to fill in her fairy dust and then added snow white Frantage embossing powder sprinkled around the image and on her dress. I am very pleased with how her dress came out and I hope it reminds you of silk since that's the look I was trying to achieve.
This ribbon is one of many pieces that were sent to me by my teammate, Eva Gro Røsok in Norway. Eva and I did a 'trade' a while back and I sent ribbons and lace from the USA to her and she sent me ribbons and lace from Norway. What an awesome way to get new and different products in my stash! My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and also my local lace warehouse. The pearl swirls are by Zva and the pearl broach in the center of the bow is from Suhafuha.
The sentiment is one stamp of a set that I bought at the convention in Mesa, Arizona last year. I stamped it in burgundy color on white paper Then I covered it with a round flat back round glass dome and trimmed around the edge of the paper to fit the dome. I adhered the paper to inside the dome with Diamond Glaze adhesive and then ran pearls around the outside edge. Yes, it is definitely going to be a postage hog to send this card anywhere!
