It must be the feeling of Spring in the air as I seem to be gravitating to hues of pink here lately. This little creation is made for a challenge being hosted at Catered Crop where the theme is to use rick rack.
I've layered the background with papers from Echo Park and My Mind's Eye. A touch of crackle paint added to the top section to dilute a bit of the vibrant pink. The pre-colored image is from Nicecrane Designs titled Little Girl Magic. She is framed on a double circle and scalloped base with hints of Cotton Candy Stickles and accented with a little floral spray and die cut leaves.
The sentiment, as tiny as it is, was the biggest hurdle as I wanted black paper and white lettering. I have officially determined that I am not a fan of White Craft Ink. It never seemed to dry for me and smeared constantly. Wanting something that would stay put, I decided to stamp my little alphabet stamps into a blob of Tim Holtz Picket Fence crackle paint and stamp onto black cardstock. I love the negative impression it made and it didn't smear!
I've also decorated the inside.
Here is another little ??? card, cube triangle candy holder thingy. My first attempt at making this and I "followed" the instructions from here. I am going to be honest and say that it's not mathematically proportionate to the measurements of a triangle (by creator error and not the tutorial); however, it does hold candy and that was the goal! I've also used more precolored images from Nicecrane Design's Little Girl Magic and I hope it meets the criteria for a challenge going on at Case Study where the theme is to use the inspiration card image.
The base of the triangle has been wood grain embossed, ink stained, sanded, clear powder embossed in sections and then re-stained with white and black acrylic paint in random areas for a tree type appearance. Each side is then depicting a little magic girl in her particular setting and with butterflies.
Below is the image example to follow at Case Study.
Here are the remaining sides of the triangle...
Thanks so much for your visit and comments, they are always sincerely appreciated.
Have a great one,
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
