Little Ballerina

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!!  Mitsy here from Up On Tippy Toes... I'm back again with another cute project from Oak Tree Stamps!!

I can't get enough of this Moody Ballerina set!!

And, I have an awesome COUPON CODE for you to get this set for 30% off!! Yay!
Just use my special Up On Tippy Toes code UOTT30 during checkout to take advantage of this great deal!!

I start off by stamping my image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto Canson 150 Illustration paper. Then I color my image with my Spectrum Noir markers.

 HAIR: TN1, TN3, GB1, GB2

For her eyes I decided to switch to my Le Plume II markers... they're dual tip and one tip is super fine. Perfect for doing the small spaces in the eyes.

I usually stamp m ore than one image at a time... just in case I have an "accident". It's great to have another image as a back up. Then I used my precision tipped scissors to fussy cut my image. 

Then I used the second largest circle in my Spellbinders Beaded Circles set to cut Pink cardstock. For some reason it looks beige in the picture but that could be due to my lighting... it is pink, I promise! LOL

Next I used my Marvy 2 1/8" Circle punch to cut a circle to layer onto my beaded circle.

Then I quickly ran it through my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker... peeled and stuck it onto my beaded circle. Then I added foam adhesive to the back of my little ballerina and attached her to my circle.

For my Card base I made a standard A2 (4 1/4"x 5 1/2") sized card. I embossed the front panel with this adorable star patterned embossing folder from Darice.

I cut a pennant using the second largest pennant die from my Spellbinders Baby Bunting set.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to layer it over a piece of teal cardstock and fussy cut about a 1/4" border around it. 

Then I adhered my layered pennant onto my card base.

 I attached my beaded circle to the pennant leaving a small gap at the top. In this area I attached a simple bow made from pink polka-dot grosgrain ribbon with a bit of Diamond Glaze and let dry.

For a final touch I adhered a group of glittered enamel dots at the bottom of one of my pennant tails

And here is my final card!!

Isn't she just DARLING??!!
