Hippy Girl Jewels

Hey there fellow Crafters!

Sorry it has been a little while since you've heard from me. I've been beading...and kinda got sidetracked. I did a little class on the weekend, and I LOVE it. When I'm feeling braver, I'll pop a pic of my very first creation on here for you to check out. I have a LOT to learn, but it is so much fun...might have to dig out my jewelers loupe or a large magnifying glass though...the eyes are not nearly as good as they once were ;-).

Last week I received my first-ever Bizzy Bec's stamps in the mail too, and on the weekend I cracked them open and gave them a whirl. Here is my first creation, made using Bec's lovely Hippy Girl Jewels stamp:

I have used the faux silk technique (for the first time) on the main background layer..check out the tutorial here. I did mine a little different to Beate, I stamped my image on the background textured Pumpkin Pie cardstock, instead of the tissue paper, and it shows through once you glue the tissue down.

I have used Copic markers to colour 'Jewels' in, and the colours I have used are:

The full ingredient list for this card is as follows:

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Kraft, Summer Sun, Whisper White, Really Rust and Textured Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: Bizzy Bec's Hippy Girl Jewels and C.C. Designs Sugarplum Sentiment set
Ink: Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black Classic Ink
Accessories: Doodlebug Buttons, White Tissue Paper, Yellow DMC embroidery thread, Crimper, Crystal Effects, Copic Markers (as shown above), Stampin' Up! Styled Silver Hodgepodge, dimensionals, SNAIL, sticky strip and anywhere glue stick.

Here is a close-up of Jewels, so you can see where I've whacked on the Crystal Effects:

Isn't she cute? I am very pleased with how this card turned out :-).

Thanks for dropping by!
