Make up Attitude

Good morning everyone well what a mix of weather we’re having this week snow, sleet, it’s meant to be spring for goodness sake!
Anyway I hope you’re all well I have a card to share with you today that I made for Amy’s (my daughter) birthday she turned 25 on Tuesday now I can tell you we did not have any sleet or snow the day she was born it was so hot, I’ll always remember that.
So anyone that knows my daughter will know she obsessed with makeup (she reminds me so much of myself when I was young I dreamed of becoming a makeup artist/hairdresser I would get asked by all the girls at school to do their makeup for them). For those that don’t here is a pic of her.

When Alyce from Kit and Clowder gave away an image from sweet escapes(links below) I knew it be perfect for her card. 

The card is my usual 8x8” and the papers are from pixel scrapper which I distressed and inked then splattered with diluted acrylic paint and starlight paint in Lilac mist.
I coloured the image with Polychromo pencils then masked off and added the background with distress inks.

To embellish the card I got some clip art lipsticks and printed them off on some heavy card stock then embossed with clear powder I then gave them a splattering to tie them in with the rest of the card. Then I made a very large floppy bow (I am loving these at the moment they’re so easy to make) the centre of the bow is a brad I just clipped the arms off at the back and glued it in place then added flecks of paint again in white lilac and I also added some gold.

Finally I made the insert using papers from the front and bringing the image through but leaving uncoloured then I saw this  “quote”  on google  so I thought yep that’s my Amy so I added that to the image then added the verse.

Hope you like it and I will see you very soon with some other makes (and there are a few to come lol)


Happy Crafting
Jacki xx
