Bee Crafty Inspiration - Heartfelt Abi

Hi everyone..

Once again wednesday and my turn to share a bit of inspiration for
Bee Crafty..

Like last week, I have used the "Heartfelt Abi" stamp that comes with a matching sentiment.
A really cute little girl and I had heaps of fun playing with her.

 Also like last week, I wanted a vintage feel , but with the added colour this time.
This card actually came together as a series of unfortunately event.

 I started by colouring Abi in with promarkers. All went well and I wes really happy with the result..
Then I decided to add chalk around her to liven her up a bit but I always seal the chalk with hairspray to make sure it dont smudge.. Well that was fine untill the promarkers started to run...

Well not wanting to waste my work just yet, I desided to cover my image with double sided sticky sheet and add glitter. I have used distress glitter in Antique linnen for the edges and the clear rock candy on the center. Voila, runny colours on the image is now covered up and looks as if it was meant to be lol..
Next I went on to make the card itself.. I cut my card blank using a die and added my paper, then decided I wanted a punched border down the FRONT of my card.. Well while punching, I screwed up and my punching went all wrong. So what does a true crafter do?? We change our design to fit lol.. I cut of my messed up punching at the front and tried again in the back.. Smothered it all in distress ink and voila.. Youd never know it wasnt the orginal idea lol..
 I LOVE this flower.. I dont often take the time to make them myself, but as Im writing this, I have my sister and brother-in-law over for a visit. My sister is a crafter as well and was sitting playing with these punches. As I was showing her how to make the flowers, I made mine in the matching paper for my card. Perfect finish to my card.

And that is it from me for today.
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments left behind.
