You're My Shining Star!

In my previous post I mentioned that I received ribbons from Crafty Ribbons. Part of the deal was to make two projects and mail them back to Ali in Great Britain. I actually made 3 cards using the ribbon and my Maggies!

Today I'm showing you my first card using Noble Tilda and some glitter ornament ribbon called Black Sheer Baubles.

Closeup of Tilda: I colored Tilda with Copics and chalk. Then I added lots of stickles to her dress and Close to My Heart Liquid Glass to all the pink areas. I just love my CTMH Liquid Glass!! It's a little thicker than the other stuff I've found on the market and comes out slower so I have better control in smaller areas.

Full view of card: This Christmas ribbon is sheer black with silver, pink & purple ornaments covered in lots of glitter. That's how the ribbon comes....I didn't have to add the glitter! Isn't it fabulous!!

The dot DP is from the Paper Studio and called Lime/Pink Random Dots. Where are the lime dots, your asking? Well, I actually colored the Lime dots with a purple marker and then added purple stickles. The sentiment is from a Close to My Heart set called Wishing Star (D1333). I stamped it in Dusty Concord Distress Ink, wrote over the sentiment with a purple glitter pen and added purple stickles to the word "Star".

I covered a wood star ornament with the white/silver dp which came from a Martha Stewart pad that had various gold and silver double-sided sheets. I then inked the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Silver rhinestone swirls finish off my card.

Here's a side view: Tilda's legs were glued to the ornament and pop dots were added behind her head and body to level her out with the star ornament. The sentiment was also popped up with popdots.

These are the challenges I'm entering my card in: -October Home Page Contest
