Crafter's Retreat #6....the final one I promise!!!

I have used this getaway to try and do projects I would not usually get a chance to do around the house. One especially is Missy's birthday card (her b'day is early June). If I get this done at home...she is always over my shoulder and I can never surprise camp provised the PERFECT cover!!

At camp I swapped some images with a fellow crafter Steph. as 'payment' she gave me some 12 x 12 paper. She had seen me colouring the hair on the image i was using on the card....and from her payment...the card evolved....don't you just LOVE it???

So here is Miss 6's card....

I stamped the beautiful Princess Anya (The Greeting Farm) onto SU watercolour paper and coloured her up with a mix of watercolour pencils and watercrayons. I tried to get her hair the same shade as Miss 6's but missed the mark BIG TIME!!! LOL!! Here is what it was really meant to look like.. think I needed to up the red a tad huh???

Anyhow...I stamped the dress onto the Bella Rose DSP and another pink DP I had, cut around it and put it back together over the original dress I stamped. I added hot pink KindyGlitz to the star and crown (cause unlike her Mum she LURVES pink) and continued that on the #6 at the base. it sparkles very much IRL. A couple of flower brads to tie in the paper with the image and there you go!!! Unfortunately I cannot recall the name of the numbers set I borrowed.....if anyone knows...can they please let me know in the comments??

I love this card and I sincerely hope she does too. now all I have to do is get something to go with it..hee hee hee.

Thanks for stopping by and enduring all of the Crafter's retreat can all give yourself a pat on the back!!!
