Papertrey Ink Ballerina Beauty birthday card

Fairy tale challengeblog

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at the The Fairy tale Challenge blog, where I am continuing my Guest Designer spot. For this challenge we are asked to use some corrugated card - I know it is a fun blast from the past but luckily, because I find it so hard to get rid of anything, I still had some in my stash. I came up with this card





I used the Ballerina Beauty stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink and the colours were inspired by the aqua colour of the chevron corrugated card. I used a number of Copic markers to create the ombre effect on the dress, and then added some dots with a white gel pen.

I wanted to create a spotlight for her to dance in so I took some masking tape and created an open




triangle shape, and then used an inking tool and some yellow ink to give the suggestion of light. I curved the sentiment on an acrylic block to follow the shape of the card and added a couple of enamel dots to highlight it. 





Some Wink of Stella glitter on the dress, and glaze on the bow finished it off. Why not pop over to the The Fairy tale Challenge blog to see what inspiration the team have for you and join with us this time.


I'd like to play along with
