CBCC #21 - Inspiration

This week's CBCC challenge is to find inspiration from your favorite CD. "What music do you listen to while you stamp?" Courtney said to use that CD cover as inspiration for this week's card or project. Wellllll......... little does Courtney know that I don't listen to music. So, I changed it around a bit and found some inspiration from my latest DVD movie.

Can you guess what movie this might have been inspired by??? Hee hee heeeeeeee!

The Fairy Dust sentiment comes from Rubbernecker. I went on a buying spree last year when I met the Rubbernecker gang at a convention in San Antonio. I'm so glad I had a chance to use this stamp. It's such a cute and whimsical saying.

Look closely and you will see that all the papers are shimmery. The dark blue cardstock is Night Sky from PaperTrey Ink, and the cream paper is Poison Ivory shimmery cardstock. I wanted the green to shimmer also, so I found my old bottle of hairspray and silver Pearl Ex, shook it up, and sprayed the green cardstock.

For the sentiment, I stamped it first with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink, let it dry, and then centered it inside a nestabilities die. After I cut it out, I sent it back through with the tan embossing mat to give me a raised edge. I used that raised edge as a guide for applying some Star Dust Stickles around it to sort of frame the sentiment. I used the swirls from the Beautiful set at Cornish Heritage Farms and stamped with with Vintage Cream ink (PTI). After that dried, I went over some of the larger swirls with Star Dust Stickles (my favorite!).

Well, I couldn't just leave it at that. So I Stickled some silver star brads and waited several hours for that to dry. In the meantime, I found some irridescent ribbon, and that provided a great finishing touch for this card. It turned out to be a shimmery and sparkly card in honor of Tinkerbell! :-)
