Pets Galore!

This week at the Glitter Geek Challenge Blog, our challenge is PETS  ... an all encompassing theme, we love our animals!  We are sponsored this week by Joanna it will be a fab prize for the winner!

Ingredients: White cardbase; Decorative papers; Stardust Glitter Pens; White Lace; Green Ribbon; Lace Flower; Ice Stickles; Gold Metallic Pen...

I'm definitely enjoying a stint of clean and uncluttered cards at the moment.  I'm using a lot of white card bases!  This card features layers of green plain and yellow patterned papers between layers of white card.  The image is one I couldn't resist, from Cuddly Buddly Crafts. I didn't have a pony or horse as a child, but I loved this image!

As the image was precoloured, I've accentuated parts of it by adding stardust glitter pens to the frame, flowers and sun, glaze pens to the wee ladybugs, and a touch of chalk on the pony. To the image layer (before everything was fixed together) I added piece of white lace, and a wonderfully textured ribbon, on which I had sewn a white lace daisy. The daisy actually comes from a lace ribbon of daisies.... really sweet! I added some Ice Stickles to the daisy, for a bit of sparkle, and coloured the centre with a gold metallic pen.

I hope you'll visit us at Glitter Geeks to see our Design Team's inspiration pieces, and then join us in our Myths and Legends challenge.... Thanks for peepin'!
