One of a Kind.....

Hello everyone: We have a new challenge for you over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, this time we want you to use STICKLES on your cards, easy peasy, right? This product adds a lot of sparkle to any image, any time of the year.  Here is the card I made to hopefully, inspire you to join my teammates and I in the gallery.

Now, isn't she glamorous? she is ready for a night on the Town, super fabulous dress.
This darling image is from Stamping Bella and it's called Audrey Loves Makeup
I stamped the image onto a piece of Strathmore multi media paper with Stazon black ink, the dress, bows on her hat and the little bow on her purse were covered with red stickles, I put a couple of layers being careful not to cover the outer lines, I didn't want the stickles to look like a big blob.
I let it dry overnight and then, I colored the rest of the image. Her necklace and details on her purse are done with a gold gel pen, the hat, purse, gloves and shoes with a black water color pencil and a very small brush. 
The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Sassy Succulents but I think it fits this image perfectly. The pattern paper is from my stash of Lili of the Valley beautiful paper pads, I'm hoarding this paper, I love it and it's sadly discontinued.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is also from the Sassy Succulents stamp set.
I hope you play along this week with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, for more awesome inspiration, hop over my teammates blogs and check out their fabulous creations.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I apreciate this more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
