Papersmooches - Let's celebrate!

Hey Everyone,

I decided to create another card similar to the one I posted a week ago but I wanted to make it layered and to use my favorite green!

I prepped my main image from Dyan Reaveley's Night on the Opera - after stamping it in Black Soot  I coloured it in using Copic Ciaos (Dress - BG23, BG13, BG49; Waistband - C3 and C5; Skin - E00 and E50). I felt the dress needed a shine, so I used my Opalite refill ink in Artic Emerald and distressed in onto the dress using a sponge dauber. It ended up with a beautiful reflective green on it!
I then cut out the image and sized it for my card base. I added some Rock Candy Stickles and left it to dry.

Onto the white base, its side folded to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. I used me second largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Fifteen and die cut/embossed some grey cardstock. I then stamped the leaves from Papersmooches Botanicals 2 stamp set in Hero Arts Silver ink and "Let's celebrate" from Papersmooches Birthday Sampler in Hero Arts Splash ink.

To start my assembly I adhered the grey die cut panel to the white base and added a thin strip of silver cardstock to the left side of the card. I then used foam squares and mounted down the dress image. To finish off I added enamel dots by Teresa Collins Simple Stories.

Hope you liked the card!
