Losing Your Favorite Glass Slippers

     We have a new challenge which starts today at Crafts Galore Encore and one of our sponsors is Star Stampz (the other is ppinkydolls.)  I couldn't wait to color up this adorable Cinderella by Star Stampz.  She looks so distressed at losing her glass slipper, don't you think?  It couldn't possibly have anything to do with the clock striking midnight, right?


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, adding a bit of sparkle gel ink to the lost slipper before coating it with Glossy Accents.  I also added sparkle to the stars in the sky but none of that shows in the photo.  Sigh...

     I wanted the card to be very feminine so I started by cutting the image and its mat with 2 different dies from Spellbinders.  I used wide lace on the card front before layering on the image piece.   I printed the sentiment and adhered it to the upper corner.  Finally, I added the large bow and the two flowers (one made from ribbon and one punched from mulberry paper.)

     Challenges:
Colour Crazy
C.R.A.F.T.
Crafty Catz
Crafty Creations
Creative Fingers
Creative Inspirations
Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights
Outlawz Twisted Thurs
Penny's Paper-Crafty
Simon Says Stamp

    I'll have one more post today as this is my usual 'busy' 1st of the month when I post projects for three of my DTs.  I hope we're going to see you playing at CGE this month.  If you came by looking for my 2 Crafty Critter Crazies project, please click here.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
