Sweet Sparkle

Hi everybody,

Bev showed you all a gorgeous card with Wee Stamps' new Wee One last Wednesday. Today I'd love to introduce you to another new member of the Wee Stamps family, please meet the gorgeous Sweet Sparkle:
Isn't she just gorgeous? This is actually a notepad and not a card... I have to admit that I was so satisfied with how this project was turning out that at the last moment I decided to turn her into something more permanent then a card.

The sentiment is also available at Whimsy Stamps it's part of the Friendship Notables 2 set by Raindrop Echo Designs, it's one of my favorites :). I cut the sentiment out with the matching die and then attached it to the also matching "Simple" chipboard Frame that I painted with a picket fence paint dabber and then also with a little bit of picket fence crackle paint. I used the crackle paint on the papers as well together with frantage, Stickles and Viva Eiskristall.

A close up of gorgeous Sweet Sparkle, as always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced using the Olba Glue and syringes that are available at Whimsy Stamps. The lantern was a challenge but I love how it turned out :). The Copic Markers used are:
Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000
Hair: E44, E42, E41, E40, E50, E0000, CB
Brownish color in clothes, wings, butterfly and flowers: E84, E81, W00, CB
Blueish color in clothes, wings, butterfly and flowers: B02, B00, B000, B0000, W3, W1, W00, CB
Body of butterfly: E55, E53
Lantern, center of flowers and charm on necklace: Y28, YR23, YR21, YR20
Flame: YR04, Y13, Y11
Shine of light: Y13, Y11, Y0000
Candle: E40, W00, CB
Golden liquid pearls, Stickles Diamond and Stardust and a white gelpen
And the little pieces that were used to create Sweet Sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed my project. Have a great day everybody!!!
