Pretty U - A Victorian Beauty

Good day everyone :) How are you ladies? I hope everyone is doing well and having fun creating projects! So here's a fresh card i would like to share with you all, i know i've been showing you a lot of cards lately with different sizes and shapes but now i would like to introduce to you my newest card size craze!... it's a big 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"! Yep! I'm creating this big now lol! Well, i really wanted to do a card of this size for so long but i never had the chance to do it so i challenge my self  the other day to create this and i'm so excited it came out great!...i think this will be my official card size from now on :) I just love it!

This is a digital stamp image called Victorian Beauty from ThePaperShelter. I used 2 coloring mediums, Copic markers from a RAOK i received from my sweet friend Elaine and Distress Inks. You can't really tell and distinguish which part of the image i used this mediums on by just looking at it right? lol!

On her skin, i used Copic markers and on her dress i used Distress Inks. Also the patterned paper's edges were distressed using scissors as i don't have a distressing tool.

The oval shape tag was a plain K&Company chipboard die-cut shape that i just covered it with Basic Grey patterned paper and doodled around it with white dots using Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

Also used my label maker to create the word "pretty".

I used Touch Marker 32 to color the "U" which is a sticker i adhered to a scallop cardstock that i cut using my scallop scissors. I then distressed the edges with Jet Black StazOn ink. 

For the flower and the image border, i just doodled those brown dots with a brown Staedtler fineliner pen. It looks more interesting i guess :)


Those 3 stick pins are handmade by me using beads i had on my stash, i just used a flat head pin instead of using a real stick pin for safety purposes.

I really can't just leave my flowers so plain :) they need to have sparkles so i spread a good amount of crystal stickles on the petals. I also put some stickles on the mirror if you can see it.

When you use your cutting plates for so many times, you get all the indents from all your previous cuts and they leave marks and scores in the next cut out and so that's how i got the texture formed on the leaves. And this reminds me of changing my plates soon lol!
