Sweet Angie Angel - TT92 Use Pastel Colours


Good morning!

I'm so happy you stopped by to say Hi!! I have a sweet card to share as DT member for the fabulous 'Tuesday Throwdown' challenge this week - our sponsor is 'Robyn's Fetish' and our theme is to 'Use Pastels'.

I was fortunate enough to use this little lady called 'Angie Angel' who is a Digi Stamp by Robyn's Fetish stamps. She is paper pieced using lots of lovely Pink Paislee papers (see supplies list for details) and coloured using Copics.  Her dress is patterned paper from London Market by Pink Paislee and wings are text paper from the same line.  I added a little blue to the bottom using a copic marker and sprinkled on some dazzling diamonds glitter - because every girl needs a little glitter sometimes :).  Angie is holding a peaches and cream paper flower and the original flower that comes with the digi is coloured with blue and blush pink and paper pieced to make a sweet addition to her dress.  I didn't add a sentiment this time, but will probably personalise it for the next girlie birthday party my boys attend.


I used Melissa Frances 5th Avenue paper to die cut an oval shape using nestabilities and then created a blue cardstock frame using the two largest nestability oval shapes.  I trimmed the oval using some May Arts light blue pastel loopy trim - love this stuff!!   I added some beautiful pink and peachy toned paper roses to my frame and then added sweet little Angie using foam dimensional adhesive. The patterned paper background is Melissa Frances 5th Avenue (left) and Pink Paislee London Market (right).


I used some pale blue seam binding tied in a bow and a sweet crystal blue brad to finish.

But that's not all...

I am continually inspired by the fantastic talents of all the CR84FN DT and their challenges and challenge 51 is no exception!! This beautiful colour board inspired me to use the combination of pink, peach and light blue on my card...

I'm also playing along with the much beloved 'Card Patterns' super sketch this week by Michelle Bertuzzi - Yay!!! I rotated the sketch and altered the position of the flowers slightly too :). I hope the scalloped design on the Melissa Frances paper counts for the pretty border too.

I've also entered the 'Stamptacular Sunday' - Playing with Pastels Challenge too :)

Thank you so very much for stopping by!!

Dont forget to visit my TTDT friends to see what they have created using Robyn's Fetish stamps!!
