Be Bold, Be You Ballerina!

18:00:00

Hi everyone! It's Tiddly Tuesday today and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Tiddly Inks! :D It's a fun one this week and one that I am very familiar with....FLOWERS! hehe


I used one of the brand new images...Be Bold, Be You Ballerina. How incredible is this image! Very Black Swan. I wanted to do peacock feathers but decided to use a black and red scheme instead.


Is it just me or is this photo kinda blurry? My eyes go all weird when I look at her skirt/shoes lol! Now...you kow how I love my cheesecloth so I tried to do something a little different today. How do you like my cheesecloth bow! :D I just gathered it up and tied a loose strip around to create a messy bow, and then affixed a Tim Holtz button. I like it! And my new nummy papers...Prima Nature Garden. I have been waiting for this pad for weeks and so excited it has arrived.

I coloured up this beautie using my copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: R20, R32, R37, R39, R59
Shoes/Head Piece: W3, W5, W7

Can't wait to see all of your lovely creations for this challenge! Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. oh woooowww what shall I say. This card is just amazing. I know why I chose to be follower. Your coloring is perfect. A great inspiration. Your bow looks super and I like the Idea of the button. But what I like best are the pearls around the ballerina... Your gold shimer on the red roses is also very pretty.
    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful card.
    Hugs from Switzerland.
