Little Ballerina - My First DT Post For Julia Spiri Challenge Blog

Good morning everyone, first of all, I would like to warmly welcome my new couple of followers....Hiya and thanks so much for joining my 'krafty world' ... Please feel free to stop by any time!!

Well, I can't believe it's already time to showcase my first blog post for Julia Spiri . How exciting!!  Our theme for this fortnight is Monotone / Use shades of one colour ... So without further ado, here is my first project using Little Ballerina, who is utterly adorable!! For all Julia Spiri images, Challenge details etc, please follow the links at the bottom of the page!!

My Project 

Products Used
Julia Spiri Stamps - Little Ballerina Image
Promarkers - Almond, Blush, Sandstone, Buttercup, Pastel Pink, Baby Pink, Pale Pink,  Antique Pink and Ice Grey 1
Gel Pen - Gold Glitter
Bazzil Bling - Pink Backing Card
Sandylion - 12x12 Ballet Paper
Spellbinders - Scalloped/Plain Circle Dies
Flower, Ribbons, Butterfly topper, Resin Flower and Gems - All from my stash

Starting off with a basic 8 x 8 scalloped white card blank, I layered this with pink card and ballet paper after rounding off the corners. The image I printed onto watercolour card, coloured using Promarkers, and highlighted areas with gold glitter gel pen, layering on the same pink card. I added ribbons, bow, butterfly, gems and flowers from my stash, finishing off with a printed sentiment on white card, and layered onto more pink card...
