Cuttlebug Challenge

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a good weekend. A card today for The Cuttlebug Challenge where the theme this time is to make a mask and use glimmer mist. For my mask I used a strip of paper that I’d previously punched some hearts from, placed it over the white heart doily die cut and sprayed it with Creme de chocolat glimmer mist, moved it up and sprayed again the embossed with the hearts cuttlebug folder. I stamped the gorgeous Amor Tilda and water coloured her with distress inks and then cut her out. There’s stickles dotted about and little pearls on her headband done with a Viva Decor pearl pen. The round card blank was cut on the Expression as was the scalloped heart doily and on the blank I’ve stamped with the Magnolia Love post and love heart stamps in old paper distress ink. The large heart is another die cut and the smaller one is from a Martha Stewart punch, both have been edged with walnut stain distress ink and then glittered with chunky glitter. A pretty ribbon, a Papermania sentiment and a few more pearl drops to finish. TFL and as always, thank you for the lovely comments you leave, I really do appreciate them very much.

Hi, lovely friend Chris! I appreciate every comment you are able to leave me on my blog. You are always so thoughtful and I treasure you. I have not visited any blogs in ~12 days. I hoped to get to it a couple of days ago, but today is the day :)

You know I am a Chris Dark fan. Your colouring of images has improved so much (though they were perfectly amazing when I first found your blog; quite an accomplishment to improve on perfection!!!) Having said that, I also enjoy the trendy little projects you create that do not include your fabulous colouring too.

Thank you for participating at Cuttlebug Challenge blog :)
