Ballerina Marci and a couple of butterflies


Here is the glittery and gorgeous Ballerina Marci.  She is super cute and her outfit is perfect for adding lots of glittery goodness. This is actually the image that I started colouring at the informal copic morning at Southern Stationery.  Well I finally got around to finishing colouring her and opened up a new paper pad to make this card.  I hadn’t heard of Authentique paper before but the two paper pads I have just got are really lovely.  I didn’t have bright blue pearls so I just coloured my plain pearls with my copic marker.  I love doing this and it means I don’t have to keep as many different colours of pearls to match my projects.

I first stamped ‘Ballerina Marci”  onto blending card using tuxedo black ink and then coloured using the copic markers listed above.  I used the blue spica pen to add some shimmer by colouring the roses in her hair and on her dress.  I added rock candy distress stickles to her skirt.  I cut the lacey circle out using my big shot.  I used liquid pearls around the edge of the circle inside the scallops then left to dry.  I trimmed some white card to make the strip across the card and used pumice stone ink to change the colour.  Then I stamped the words onto the paper using tuxedo black ink.  Some faux stitching drawn with one of my copic multi-liner pens finished that part of the card.  I trimmed some patterned paper to go along the lower edge of the strip of paper and adhered using double sided tape.  I cut the base patterned paper to size and drew the lines with my white gel pen to provide some contrast and a bit of a frame for the card.  I coloured the pearls with my B05 copic marker.  I adhered the scallop circle to the doily and then stuck this to the card base.  I punched out the butterflies and then drew some additional faux stitching lines.  Then I used liquid adhesive to stick the butterflies to the card. Some rock candy distress stickles was applied after sticking the pearls in place for the body of the butterfly (Sometimes I put the distress stickles on before I adhere the embellishment to the card also).  The grey strip of paper was then adhered to the front of the card and then it was time to add ballerina marci (who is stuck on using foam adhesive).  The blue pearls in the corner were added to finish the card.
