What every girl needs...

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

WOW I sure have been on fire today! 

I have managed to make a start 4 of my DT projects which just need putting together and embellish. I even made this card for today's one word challenge over on Mad Crafters Giggle Facebook group.

I must say I was a bit worried that my Mojo may still be back in Turkey but no I am pleased to say that it came back home with me, it is just as well as I have got a very busy 3 weeks ahead of me.

Here is tonight's card using the Handbag and Shoe Stencil from Imagination Crafts.


Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white pearlescent square card.
2. I wrapped a piece of white lace around the bottom of the navy blue card and matted and layered onto the base card.
3. Onto the reverse of black glossy card I stencilled the shoe with Blue Moonstone Sparkle Medium, once dry I cut out and then painted over with Silkies Royal Satin.
4. Onto patterned card I stencilled the handbag with Blue Moonstone Sparkle Medium, once dry I cut this out.
5. To finish off I added Tattered Lace Sentiment die and white pearl gems.
