I feel so lucky and honoured to join this fabulous team and I am really excited to get to "work" with such talented ladies! There are two other new DT members as well, Dot and Carissa.Wooo Hooo:-)!

Other: Distressed stripes CB folder, Sanding Block, Stormy Sky DI for the background, Glamour Dust, Stardust Stickles, White glitter card, crystals from stash

The striped paper is blue CS, embossed with my Cuttlebug, then I used a sanding block to have white stripes instead of blue, better for snow and frost:-), then added loads of Glamour Dust...

Pour les rayures, papier Mahé marine embossé à la Cuttlebug, puis poncé pour faire ressortir le blanc (mieux que le bleu pour la neige et le gel...), et enfin des tonnes de paillettes Glamour Dust...

And a last view...

Enjoy the rest of your evening, and thank you very much for watching:-)!

Stars, glamour dust, diamond glaze and a few challenges:-)

Hello all! I hope you are all well despite the awful weather... I have a bad cold and a sore throat, like many children and pupils, they are so nice, they keep sharing...:-)! But let's talk about cards... I have made another one using a Tiddly Inks image, I love them and to tell you the truth, I have bought... a few... no, OK, many, too many (says hubby:-)!

Coucou! Une autre carte avec une image Tiddly Inks... J'en ai acheté quelques-unes, euh... beaucoup dit ma moitié... et quelques challenges...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks - Diamond Glaze or Crackle Accent
Flutterby Wednesday - # 124 Sparkle and Shine
The Creative Cottage - #24 Bling It On
ABC Challenge - E is for Easel
The Secret Crafter - #103 Easel Cards
Cupcake Craft - #110 Pink and Brown
Paper Sundaes - #37 Things with Wings
Mad For Markers - Colour in a digital image with Copics (second entry for me, hope it is OK, if not, ignore:-))
Here is the top of the card...

The whole card...

Stamps: Fairy Fae Catches a Star Tiddly Inks (digital), Sentiment LOTV
Copics: B00, BG000, C1, 3, E000, 00, 11, 25, 29, 31, RV02, 00, 000
DPs: Magnolia (Stars), Tim Holtz
Tools: MS Doily punch, Star Punch (Woodware?), Magnolia Die (Swirl), Ink Blending Tool with Spun Sugar DI
Other: Diamond Glaze, Glamour Dust, Ribbon and gems from stash, Brown ColorBox Ink for the sentiment

And a few close-ups and explanations...
Quelques gros plans et explications...

And a bad picture :-( with a lot of light and flash to show the diamond glaze
Voici une horrible photo, faite avec plein de lumière et de flash pour montrer le Diamond Glaze

The fairy's wings, grey stars (and pink stars on the ribbon), the sentiment and swirl have all been made the same way: I mixed Diamond Glaze and Glamour Dust then applied with a brush... The pink stars are white CS, punched then coloured with RV02 Copic. The stars for the sentiment were handmade, I added some Spun Sugar DI on the edges, then Diamond Glaze + Glamour Dust.

Pour les ailes de la fée, étoiles grises, étoiles roses sur le ruban, le sentiment et le swirl, j'ai mélangé vernis Diamond Glaze et paillettes Glamour Dust d'abord, puis appliqué le mélange à l'aide d'un pinceau... Les petites étoiles roses ont été perforées dans du papier blanc, puis coloriées au Copic RV02, les étoiles du sentiment sont faits main, toutes ont été recouvertes de mon mélange...

And a last view...

Phew! That's it! I hope you are all having a great weekend, see you later, will come and visit your blogs soon!
C'est TOUT! Bon week-end à toutes et à très vite! Bises,
Delphine xx
