Last month Beth over at Inky Fingers Rule and I swapped some stamped images through the mail. Beth wanted some Anya and Ketto images and she sent me some Ketto’s I don’t have and some Doodle factory images! This is a GREAT way of trying out some images without buying the stamps. Thanks Beth! I finally got to use one of the Ketto’s she sent me. I needed a Birthday card and she worked just great. I also am inspired by Beth’s AMAZING cards, so this one was definitely influenced by Beth’s style…..without all the amazing cutting and stamping she does. There is a LOT of sparkle on this card…and I did manage to get one photo with a little glint on it :0) I took the photo on my deck rail with my Mandevilla plant next to it….love those pink blooms. The circles are cut with Nesties and I used Bazzil Bling CS. The vellum with stars on it is some Disney paper I picked up at Archiver’s. The sentiment is stamped on the reverse side of the Bazzil CS using CTMH Fringed Phrases. The images and sentiment are colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. The wings and tip of the crown are filled with CTMH Prisma Glitter. The inside is some more Bazzil Bling cut using the Candles punch from (I think) EK Success. I put the 3 pearls in the top corner as it was missing something and 4 circles just didn’t look right. It still doesn’t quite work to my eye but I am leaving it at that.
Thanks so much Beth!!! I am so inspired by your art!
