Caardvarks - Live and Let Die and Blowing Thanks

The Challenge over at Caardvarks and the moment is Live and Let Die...
Welcome to "Live And Let Die", our latest and greatest challenge involving DIE CUTS! and this card I created for Emma to say thanks for all her hard work sorting "Troops card appeal" and to wish her get well! Covers this challenge perfectly...


There is so much going on, on this card, I really am pleased with the result, I wanted an aged soft edges to the background and applied crackle paint to the corners of some patterned paper, Let dry and applied white brilliance ink, (the paint was darker than I wanted!).
The Image I have stamped and coloured with copics and glitter all over her hair, I stamped on various BG papers and cut to create my 3D piecing! (loving this technique!) Her wings have been done with liquid applique, then heated , then glittered a little! I've used gel pens and copics to add details to her clothes! All on nesty die cut ovals.
The flowers have been die cut and edged with gold pen, layered and finish with gem. Then the other flowers I've created my very own chipboard die cuts using various different die's. So pleased with how they turned out, it takes a little time but will definitely be doing it again! The sentiment is stamped on die cut tag and glitter pen to add detail, finished with a chipboard die cut flower edged with gold! AND another pearly gem.
