For Mother or Special Lady

Hello there friends!
Just swinging by to share a new challenge with you over at
This week we would like to see your creations for "mother/special lady".
We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Our sponsor this week is
All Dressed Up Digital Stamps
So be sure to play along with our challenge for a chance to win!

They have provided the design team with some lovely images to work with for our creations this week, so here's what I've come up with for the challenge:
I have used the ADU image called Mirror Mirror.
I have printed her out on some Copic blending card stock and colored the image with my Copic markers and several different colors of metallic gel pens.

I masked off the bottom portion where her feet are and blending some ink at the bottom of the image panel and then also used a light hand at blending some ink in the upper left corner to make it appear as light.  Before adding the glossy accents to the mirror, I stamped a sentiment on the mirror from Altenew called Precious Moments.  I've also added a sentiment at the bottom from the same stamp set as well.

I attached this panel onto a red A2 sized top folding card base in the upper right corner and then added some stitch lines around the image panel with a white gel pen.

Here's a closer look at the details:
Here you can better see all of the shimmer and shine on the mirror.  I've stamped the sentiment, covered it with clear Spectrum Noir glitter pen and then layered it with a thick coat of glossy accents. I've also used some glitter metallic gel pens to color in around parts of the mirror, dresser, her seat and the butterflies.  I 've also added some dots around the butterflies with my white gel pen.

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today and please be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the design team and join along with us this week!

Thanks for dropping in!

STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS. Vicki this is so pretty and love how you did the mirror to really stand out. Great colouring too.xx ♥[aNNie]

Debra K. said...

Absolutely gorgeous! Fabulous colouring and I love the glitter gel pen areas as they sparkle beautifully. What a great idea to stamp a sentiment in the mirror before adding the Glossy Accents. The sentiment at the bottom is just so lovely. Any mom/mum would be proud to receive this from their daughter. Debra x

MaryH said...

The G.A. on the mirror gleams splendidly. I love your coloring, and nice work with the metallic pens too. They add such nice sparkle I think. It's a cute image, and I love the layout you've done. Like the way the light 'glows' in the top left corner, and I adore that sentiment too. Isn't it so true for all of us? TFS & have a great weekend.

Nonni said...

Wow Vicki, your coloring and all the details on this scene look fantastic, what a great card and so skillfully made... The sponging is the perfect final touch!

Pia S said...

This is so well designed. The yellow ink adds light in a natural way and the blue grounds the image. And the glossiness of the mirror looks very realistic. Great job!
