Diamonds and Pearls

Happy Friday stampers!! We have a brand new challenge at Wags 'n Whiskers today..."Diamonds and Pearls"! Just wait until you see what the design team has created this!

I used "Angelica" on my card today. I paired her up with some pretty Capella papers from Basic Grey. The image was cut out with my Spellbinders. While it was still in the die, I sponged around it using my Inkssentials Blending Tool and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. (All the paper edges were also sponged with the same ink.) I used an assortment of flat backed pearls and rhinestones, which are my diamond substitute :). The pretty flowers are Prima Hydrangeas...the edges of the petals were lightly touched with more of the Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

Angelica's wings were coated with Stardust Stickles, as was her sprinkle of "pixie dust".

Copics: Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, R20 Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E59 Clothes: RV000, Vo1, R83, R85, R89, G20, G83, G85, G99 (and little touches of C5) Wings: RV000, BG10, G20 and the colourless blender

If you join in with our Diamonds and Pearls challenge this week, you could be the winner of a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp...but only if you make sure to use a WnW stamp on your project! You can find the whole line of both rubber and digital WnW stamps HERE.
