Little Ballerina!

Yes another card with my pretty Ballerina stamp. Can you tell I love her? Plus it is the end of Dance season, so I it is a great time to ink her up.

You may remember the Ballerina frame, I made for Amber’s dance teacher. Well, this is the card that will accompany the frame when I give it to her, along with the stamp and sentiment.

Toe Shoes

I was inspired by toe shoes, with that perfect satin ribbon, and how it laces, then ties. I wanted to re-create that here.

The pink is sweet blush cardstock from PTI, as is the satin ribbon. It is the PERFECT pink for a ballerina. I didn’t want a contrasting color for my ballerina layer, so I just used the same cardstock-and of course, popped it up with dimensionals.

I love the music note’s bkgd (not sure who makes that-sorry :C it is the same one in my Elvis card from yesterday) stamped lightly on the blush cardstock. Its so soft and subtle, stamped at an angle on 3/4 of the pink layer. I’m on a kick with bkgd stamps at an angle I guess.

Her little tutu just sparkles with glitter. She is just perfect!

There is a pair of ballet shoes lightly stamped behind the sentiment. They are from a Girly Girl tin from Paper Salon.

I get many questions on what I use to color-I ALWAYS use my Copic marker’s! It is RARE that I don’t! Sorry I never keep track of what I use either-I own them all, and sort them by color groups, not the sets they came in-Skin tones, pinks, reds and so on.

My best advice is start with Set A and move on from there. I really would wait till you can afford some sort of “set” and start with the skin tones and colorless blender.

Well that is all for today. Tomorrow I have a challenge card to post 😀 using Pink Cat stuff 😀 So stay tuned.

Noah’s Super Boy party gift using the Billy set was a HUGE hit 😀 I have to say I had a HARD time handing it over! LOL! I don’t know why I have a hard time giving that stuff away! That is the entire POINT isn’t it? It would just collect dust here anyway. Maybe it the thought it will get trashed?!! I really hope they re-gift the bag 😀

Alrighty-I’m off. I really hope to stamp today! I got my new LAD sets in the mail! YEAH!!! Loving the new flower set-Le Jardin-it is a “sister set” to my favorite Jolies Fleurs. I know many of you emailed me your requests to see certain sets, so I will do my best to get some eye candy for you.

 Lets cross our fingers I get to stamp. You too!!
