Follow Your Dreams Esme

Well Hello there!
As you've probably noticed I've been missing for a while.
It's been a busy old time since my last post with preparations for Christmas in the shop.
The gift side of the shop goes a bit mad at this time of the year & we also hold our annual Christmas Shopping Evenings at the beginning of November. Not to mention half term holidays in October & Daisy's birthday party which I was brave enough to host at our house!!.
My project I'm sharing today is a Birthday card for my friend's daughter who turns 6 this week.
You may remember my card for her brother Finley featuring the Max Rocks stamps from Visible Image.
For this card for Esme, I have used the Fairy Dance stamp from Stampendous.
I wanted to keep this card very girly as it is going to be put in a frame & hung on the wall in her bedroom. So of course it had to be pink, purple & sparkly.
This stamp was the perfect image as when us 2 mums get together Daisy & Esme are forever dancing & twirling around in pretty dresses practicing their ballet moves!.
The image was coloured with my Inktense pencils & an extra skirt added over the top of the original to add dimension.
The Follow Your Dreams sentiment from Visible Image was stamped over a blended Distress Ink sky & foliage was stamped down the edges in green using a Lavinia stamp.
The image was layered onto white card & a background made with Brushos. The larger background was a mix of picked raspberry & dusty concord over stamped with a rose design, also from Stampendous.
I embossed around the edges with sparkly pink Wow! embossing powder & added a cluster of flowers & leaves & of course, lots of stickles glitter glue.
Thanks for visiting.
I hope to be back again very soon.
