Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges #27 - Doily

Afternoon {Pink} Fans, it's time for a new challenge over at TPS Challenges, but first, let me thank everyone who joined in with last weeks 'Flowers' challenge - it was such fun seeing all of your projects. Congratulations to the winner and the top 5, nice job!!

I know I had a blast producing my card, it was one of my faves I have made for Tickled Pink - it helps that I REALLY love working with the Pinkettes. I'm hoping if Kellie is reading this she might take the hint *wink, wink* I'm naughty, aren't I?! But as they saying up north goes.. "Shy bairns get nowt!" LOL!!

I digress, this week over at TPS we want to see those..


You got it, it could be a die cut, a stamp, a crochet doily.. we want to see what creativity you've got going on. Perhaps you could use a doily in a different way and create a card base? Let us see what you've got!!

For my project I have used a cute little image from the BRAND NEW Lil' Little line..


The look on her face is priceless. It's like she's saying "Just another day of being awesome.." HA! I've gone with a turquoise theme with just a few other colours, like the kraft, gray and brown. I think it works. I just wish I could create creases in clothes a little better.. gosh!! I've coloured her hair and skin using Copics and the rest of the image with ProMarkers.

I have created two doilies using vellum. I have placed the largest to the top of the card and the smaller one is hidden behind the big bow. I have edged both with some Frayed Burlap DI to help them stand out. I've added a clay doodad alongside some WOC flowers and the spirals. Blue liquid pearls and some faux stitching are standard.

I have added a gorgeous big bow of turquoise twill ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. Just underneath is a little Tiny Tag from PTI with the sentiment 'Wish' - although I don't think Lilith has to wish for much - it seems to me like she has it all! ;)

As always I have decorated the inside of the card to match. It's a good way to use up those extra pieces of patterned paper too - and I don't know about you, but I hate waste!

That's all I got for ya today - head on over to the TPS Challenge blog to see what the other amazing ladies have got for ya!! You will be blown away - as always.
