Whiff of Joy Challenge #25 - Melinda Holding Book

I am entering this card into the Whiff of Joy Challenge, which is a wonderful sketch by Katharina who owns the Creative Ideas Blog






I have matted this image onto lace, I stitched a running stitch through a lenght of lace, and then pulled it tight. I then taped it onto the back of the image, gathering it as I went along. Like my stitching, lol, I was too lazy to get out my pricking tool so I just drew in the stitches. Melinda's wings, necklace, bracelet (the love hearts), jeans and the flower on the bookmark have been Stickled! This card is for one of Chloe's friends who is having her 13th birthday Sunday night.



I used a PEEL OFF and coloured it with black peel off marker. I tried to make a frame with Liquid Pearls, but I am afraid I can't do straight lines, lol



WHAT I USED:

Stamp - Whiff Of Joy - Melinda Holding Book
Patterend Paper - g.c.d. - Rose Colored Glasses
Cardstock - Stucco
Flower - From my stash - haven't got a clue
Charm - Creative Charms
Brad - Woodware
Peel Off - In my stash for sooo long and a black peel off pen
Stickles - Crystal
Liquid Pearls - Petal Pink
Inks - Tim Holtz Distress Inks:- Tattered Rose, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Old Paper, and Fired Brick

This is just Gorgeous!!!!!!

Let me tell ya something about using liquid pearls......
Trace (whatever) your shape, onto a transperancy..... then pinch some holes, using your stickpen.
Now you have created a template, which you can use over and over again.
Lay your template on the spot that you want, punch through the template and card.... on the holes you can add your liquid pearls.... and you have the perfect frame.

hope this helps.....

And where is that egg????? lol
