Totally Papercrafts and Stamp Something Challenges :-)

Hi all :-) I hope all is well with everyone and you’re enjoying the summer :-)

This week the theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge was chosen by Anne and she chose ,,,, BLING IT UP and the Stamp Something Challenge s is SUMMER so I combined the 2 ,,, I have visitors arriving soon so I am pushed for time and took a short cut :-)

The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring both challenges so a fab voucher to spend on the Stamp Something Challenge and a fab parcel of goodies on the TPC. The TPC also have an extra sponsor, The Stamp Fairy is offering a fab choice of digi images too :-) Lots of lovely prizes !! :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge

I used this lovely CC Designs Bubbles Lost Lagoon image. I coloured her with Copics , cut her out and popped her onto a foaming sea, created using a Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder and sprayed with Diamond Glimmer mist ( very sparkly IRL :-)) The clouds were made using my Copic air brush and a scalloped nestie die cut. The card, papers and ribbon are fall new and are from are Stampin Up ( available from Mandi) and I bought the flowers at the NEC. I finished with some Hero Arts flat back pearls and used a Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pens to pop some pearls in her hair. I used Star Dust stickles here and there and some Frosted Lace stickles on the foamy water :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT’s have made some gorgeous cards for you too see so please hop on over to the challenge blogs to see them Smile

This card is now available in my BRAND NEW Etsy Store , Lorraine Loft :-) ( I did have a Lorraine’s Loft store but I couldn’t access it so had to knock the ‘s’ off and start again) Sad smile
