Elaine Cox - Blue Nocturne

Here is an "especially for you" card that I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Elaine Cox called "Blue Nocturne".  It is available as a digital stamp, single rubber stamp and as part of a multi-image plate (Sheet 7, Plate 52 - Blue Nocturne comes on the plate with Dreamy Sand Castle, Kitty Pumpkin Witch and Magical Springtime.

I have coloured my image in with Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Pan Pastels and sprayed it with a few coats of Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine.  The backing papers I have used are from the Crafter's Companion Angelica and Friends CD.  I have laid the image on a Marianne Designs die-cut which I have rubbed over with a Creative Expressions amethyst guilding wax.  I have finished the card off with some lace, raffia ribbon, faux stitching, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, Spellbinders die-cut butterfly, pearls, buttons and gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
