Pink 'n' Black 'n' GLITTER!

Hello, and welcome!

Yep, it's me.......back from my jollies, and not a tan in sight....just 343,229 new freckles.........honestly........I counted 'em!

Came home to find I had another lovely Follower!!  A huge welcome to Sony (Sonia).......Hi, Sony!
Sony asked how I put the stamp on the back of my's a digi stamp that was made for me by Paulette over at ........I actually won it, but I betcha she would make one for you.
I print it out in black and white, then colour it to match whatever is on the front of the card....cute, eh?

Another lovely bloggy friend sent me the most beautiful card, a few weeks ago, after I commented on how much I liked it (aren't bloggers generous, and wonderful?), and I sent the following card to her, to say thanks.....I was more than touched because she is going through a terrible time, at the moment, and yet she took the time to send her gorgeous card.........

She adores pink+black+glitter, so that's how it came out..........

Went with a textured white card blank, added some stripey DP (Craftwork Cards), then layered an embossed aperture frame on top.......

I typed out the sentiment from the ol' 'puter onto white card, (somebody once sent me a bought card with this message on, and it stayed in my head....there's a lot of room in there, lol)......then I coloured the background with my trusty Promarkers.....then dotted black spots on...just 'cos I could......and backed it with plain black card which I then painted with that glittery ModPodge it from Hobbycraft thinkin' it was the ordinary stuff, but now love this glitter.......

Meet Hettie.....she's from a decoupage digi set that I got from ages ago.......she's coloured up with the PMs, and her dress, bow, feet, and the heart on her bee-a-oot-ee-ful bum are all up on foam pads......feet and dress spots, and hairbow,  have got the glitter stuff on ' the expression on her face!

The flowers were already embossed onto the frame, so I just coloured with PMs, then added g-l-i-t-t-e-r..........

Also went around the embossed lines on the edges........

And here she is, in all her glory, again!

Hope ya like!

Use a digi
