Girl 4x4


I finished this 4x4 last night. The image is a digi stamp by My Grafico.
Here are the challenges I made it for:
Sketch Saturday - I followed the sketch but put the sentiment at the bottom instead of the top.
Tellen's Place - It's all about you. Lol, they do say that this means you can make whatever you like, it doesn't have to actuaaly represent you, but I do feel a certain affinity for this girl, lol, don't read too much into it :P
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Metal. As well as her crown and the hearts/petals at the corners, her balloon started as a metal brad, which I first painted with purple nail polish and then sprinkled with very dark purple glitter.
4x4 Friday - Ornate. Hmmm, I'm not really sure if this is actually ornate, or just busy, I may ahve another go atthis one as I do love ornate stuff :)
Paperplay Designs - Shiny Happy People. Ok, she doesn't seem particularly happy, but there are definitely shiny bits and she's definitely a people :P
Something Completely Different - B is for Bling or Balloon
Whimsical Ink Sorority - use at least 1 punched shape, 1 stamped image and some plain cardstock. My punched shape isn't entirely obvious. Originally, the silver half-flowers you can see at the sides were a piece or cardstock that I used my MS border punch on. But, it just didn't look right, so I ended up using the punched shape as a stencil and colouring in the holes with a silver glitter pen.
The Crazy Challenge - Don't call me flat! Lots od different 3D embellishments on this one :)
Thanks for looking :)
