WnW Guest Designer Card & MMSC57

My SURPRISE this week was being asked to be the featured guest designer for Wags N Whiskers Challenge Blog.  I feel on top of the world and deeply touched~~~~ Thank You Lacey and DT!!!!!

This week's WnW Challenge is DISTRESSING!!!!    So I went off to sort thru my WnW stamps and got right to work :)  Well........ you all know the saying the seven dwarfs have "Whistle while you work"~~~ mine was......... "Smiling as I work" (tee hee hee hee hee hee hee)  Can you tell how EXCITED  I was!!!!
Enough babbling and now for my card~~~~~~~~~
I needed a sketch to follow so I chose~~MMSC57

Meet Say a Prayer~~ Isn't she just the Sweetest!!!
Say a prayer was stamped twice on Cryogen White Iridescent cardstock from Paper Temptress. I detail colored one image with copics. The other was slightly colored and then I softened the background with TH broken china ink. Popped up detailed image over other. Covered her dress sash with diamond glaze. Gave her wings sparkle with diamond glaze and glamour dust!!

Started with DCWV LaCreme Cardstock--added Cream cardstock stamped with SU Baroque motif using TH antique linen and peeled paint distress ink. Next layer was piece of Prima Daydreams dp. As you see all the paper edges have been distressed using TH distressing tool and then swiped with TH antique linen or peeled paint ink pads.
Then I used the SB Labels 1 nesties to create more dimensional layers for my image. Each layer has it's very own distressed look---I lightly added distress ink to all edges--little hard to see.
This view shows all the dimensional layers :))

Next couple pics are details of embellishments!!

Embellished with Sizzix branch leaves which were distressed with Tattered Angels Creme de chocolat glimmer mist~~mmmm good!! and TH peeled paint distress ink.  The doily was also misted with the chocolat glimmer mist.  Added some Prima flowers and butterflies.  Used Viva Decor Kiwi Pearl Pen for corner pearls and on butterflies:))\

The following:  Finished inside and close ups!!!!!!!!


I just love my new SU Beautiful Wings Embosslit ~~~ I think I would like to be a butterfly in my next life LOL!!!   
Thanks for visiting! Photobucket
