New Challenge at Fussy and Fancy - Whimsy 'Daphne'

Good morning everyone,

Today, we have a new challenge over at  Fussy and Fancy. Our very lovely Beth is hosting our challenge for the next two weeks and she has chosen the theme  'Fancy Fold or Shaped Cards'.

I have tried to make something a bit different, I don't have a clue what she shape is called, but I quite like it. Next time I make one I need to make a couple of adjustments though.

I have coloured up the very gorgeous Whimsy stamp called 'Daphne' by Silvia Zett, she is a complete joy to colour. As always she has been coloured with DI reinkers.

I started with a 6 x 6 blank card, then cut another one smaller than the first, I don't do measuring it is all by eye.  I then mounted some grey card onto each panel slightly smaller than the card, followed by the Maja papers (sorry I can't remember the name of them). I then glued the smaller card onto the larger one.

Inside the card I've added some beautiful lace, pom pom trim, tags, banner and a gorgeous sentiment.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress and Socks: Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet
Wings: Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet, Mustard Seed
Headband: Victorian Velvet
Shoes: Hickory Smoke
Flowers: Mustard Seed, Victorian Velvet, Picked Raspberry
Daffodil: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade

I have also added a few colours from my Gansai Tambi paints: Lemon Yellow and Dark Pink.

All the gorgeous embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl.

The  winner of this challenge will join us with a GDT spot.

My lovely teamies have made some beautiful cards, if you have a chance, pop over to the blog for a peep.

That's all from me today, but I will back tomorrow morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
