Glamour Puss

The Let’s Get Stamping Sketchie Challenge was set by Lauren this week with the twist of  “A Touch of Glamour”

This is the sketch :

Lauren had kept it simple ( a bit like my own good self!) so that we could adorn it any way we chose.

I do have some stamps of glamorous ladies that perhaps fit the theme a little better but I wanted a more quirky approach.So I used this cutie from the Kiki Kitty stamp set by Pink Cat Studios.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and I’ve added some tiny nail gems to her hatband and scarf.I used a Nellie’s Multi Frame Die from the Circles set and wrapped a length of scrap ribbon through the holes.It’s a piece that holds tops on their hangers in the shops.I stamped the sentiment from the same set, mounted it onto a Sizzix Bigz Tag die cut and tied it on.The flower is a layer pulled from a giant white fabric gerbera I bought in Poundland.I trimmed some of the longer petals for a better fit then coloured it with two shades of pink Promarker followed by a coating of Crafter’s Companion Spray and Sparkle Silver Glitter Varnish.(You can just about make out the shimmer – it’s far more sparkly IRL).The papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.A Lip Pattern punch has been used on the corners.Some large gems from the Early Learning Centre are used to embellish this card.

I’m entering it for these challenges too :
