Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge -20 May 2011

It is time for another Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge.  This fortnight the topic is "lace and pearls".  Do I need an excuse to lace and pearls - well not really.
This time I have used a Ching Chou-Kuik stamped image called Soft Goth Night.  Isn't she absolutely beautiful.  I decided to go with a shades of pink colour scheme.  I have coloured her in with Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and the sky is done with chalks.  For some added dimension I have put glossy accents on the mermaid's tail.  Two backing papers I was given and the third is a piece of a glittery Papermania Henbury Lane - it's going a bit further as I am tearing it into strips and using it.  I have used some bright pink mirri card to accent the image and backing papers and for the bottom layer of the butterflies.  The card is finished off with some light pink lace, ribbon coloured with bright pink Promarker to match, butterflies, pearls, Artylicious Essence of Nature flowers scrunched up and with brads for centre, two pearl pins, ticket sentiment, Cricut scroll, faux stitching and some gold wire.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card.  I am entering this card into the following challenges:
