Happy Thursday everyone! I'm back with another CropStop Challenge for you.....USE those PEARLS! It can be any kind of pearls.....liquid pearls, solid pearls, self adhesive pearls...whatever pearls you got!
For my card today, I used a combination....Liquid Pearls and black/orange self adhesive pearls. I added small White Opal Liquid Pearls as a border around the green dp. Then I blinged up the corners with Recollections orange & black pearls that I got from my sweet, and generous friend Chris from A Scrapper's Musings. We met online through a Yahoo group and started emailing back and forth. Now, we send each other care packages filled with crafting goodies, of course! It's amazing the friendships that can develop even though you've never met the person face-to-face. She is someone I treasure for sure!
My dps came from Recollections Ravenhead Manor paper pack. The ribbon came from Michaels. I used my Bow Easy to tie that awesome double-loop bow! The rose is from WOC and I colored it black with my Copic Black. I found an old tag from my stash and hand-wrote Trick-or-Treat. I edged all my papers with Black Soot Distress Ink.
My image, Jolly Roger Tilda, is stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and colored with Copics and chalk. I paper-pieced her dress and head scarf. Then I added Stardust Stickles to the little polka dots.
Here's a side view. I popped Tilda up on pop-dots for added dimension. I cut the black scrolls in the corners with a die from the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Doily Accents.
