Glamorous Day...

I've been having fun combining my digital Greeting Farm images to make new outfits. Today, I have a combo of Odette and Dressy Camille to show you.

I colored "Dressy" Odette with copic markers (sorry, I forgot to take a photo of them this time around), and then went over her dress with a clear Spica pen. I gave her a touch of eyeshadow with a sand Spica pen. I know the camera didn't really pick it up, but trust me, this card sparkles like crazy in real life!

The pretty flowers are handmade using the same paper I used for the card. The stamens were snipped from a spray of flowers I picked up in the wedding section of ACMoore. I used glue dots to hold everything together, and then went over each petal with some stardust stickles. Not only does this make the flower nice and sparkly, it has the added benefit of making it hard so your flowers will maintain their shape. Cool, huh?

Challenges I participated in with this card:
Pollycraft Monday - anything goes
Cupcake Crafts - make your own flowers
Pink Elephant - nature
Kaboodle Doodles - digi girl
Creative Card Crew - vintage / aged
Secret Crafter - how does your garden grow?

Thanks for stopping by!
