In the kitchen

Hello lovely people,

I did warn you I had a lot of cards to share this week and now it's time for the Crafty Little Fairies challenge, where we have the theme...


It's a double sponsor week again with fantastic prizes on offer from;

(prize = stamp of winner's choice)

(prize = voucher)

Initially I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this theme but then I spotted the perfect stamp and had an idea for a CAS design with it so here it is;

I love this image but colouring the skirt is quite scary because it's such a big expanse of white!  I think it could be better but I am well aware I am my own worst critic so I guess it's not too bad.
I added stickles to some of the details and although it is a bit more sparkly IRL, you can actually see it in the photos for once!

Card recipe;

Oh she is so sweet !! Great layout for such a large image, too!!

Re: the white space of the dress -- you did an amazing job of blending -- there are no streaks !! Well done!!
You can also draw in pleats... I have done that before when I felt that an image needed more shape.

Love the sparkly stickles!!!
Thanks for visiting me this week when I was completely submerged & buried alive under projects !! I do appreciate it!! I'm going to do the dressy girls blog hop later today when I can hop straight thru.

Hugs!!! Xo
