A Day for Daisies #128 - Use Sequins Challenge

The ADFD DT is back with another look at Tammy's gorgeous August releases.  My card features a lovely addition to the Timeless Beauty collection called, Vintage Lipstick.  She was such a joy to color!  I love those lips and the big eyelids to play with creating a "dusty eye"!!

 I made the background paper by stamping with Versa Mark and using clear embossing powder on top of patterned paper. You rub ink on top of the embossed paper and the clear embossing powder lets the patterned paper show through. My original patterned paper was white with green polka dots.  I used SU!'s Early Espresso ink.  The combination created a vintage look that went with the image.  

The sentiment is from Little Inkers.  I masked off the second part - which says, "a little smart assy!" and added it to the inside. I have the perfect friend to give this card to for a birthday card.  The sentiment is so her!

Take a peek at the DT inspiration and play along with our Sequin Challenge on the ADFD blog. You need to use an ADFD image to enter the challenge, so Tammy generously provides free images for you to use.

    Great card Cathy, love the way you've coloured the image and fab idea for creating your own background paper. I also have paper with green polka dots, could never find a use for it but maybe I'll give this a go. :)
