We returned early Monday morning from a quick trip to Las Vegas where we stood up with friends who were getting married. Champagne Pearl, one of I Brake for Stamps' fantastic Humorous Seniors stamp collection, featured above, reminds me of several of the women I saw during our trip, down to the pearls, the bubbly, and the glittery eye shadow. Truth be told, I must sadly confess that I probably looked a lot like her too except my dress was navy blue with fluttery sleeves and my hair is shoulder length.
Champagne Pearl was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. The image panel was die-cut with one of the dies from the Card Creator 5x7 Nestabilities set (Spellbinders).
A larger die from the same set was used to die-cut green patterned paper from the Two Scoops 6x6 pad (Basic Grey). Clear vellum and gold patterned paper from the same collection were die-cut with the Layered Champagne Glass dies (Die-namics). Vellum was die-cut with the bubble dies from the Grim Cauldron die set (Memory Box).
The image panel was matted with the green patterned paper, then adhered to a card front cut from another sheet of patterned paper from the same pad. The vellum and gold champagne flute die cut was adhered to the card front. The vellum bubbles were lightly touched with some Stardust Glitter pen (Sakura) to add a touch of sparkle and were then adhered to the card.
Silver Stardust Glitter pen (Sakura) added some sparkle to Champagne Pearl's hair. White gel pen was used to highlight her pearl necklace and earrings. Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura) was used to add dimension and shine to her earrings and to her champagne flute. Mint Spica Glitter pen (Copic) was used as glittery eye shadow. Pink Chalk pencil (Derwent) was used to add a touch of blush to her cheeks.
Happy Birthday Class A'Peels stickers (Stampendous) were used to add the sentiment to the card, which was then finished with white pearls (KaiserKraft).
