Twinkle Toes – A vision in Pink!!!


For the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week, the theme is a recipe of 2 rectangles, 1 ribbon, and 3 small round embellishments. For the main image I have used the really cute House Mouse Twinkle Toes stamp. It is difficult to see from the photograph, but on top of the stamped image, I have paper pieced the ballet skirt with a deep rose/lilac vellum over-skirt which I carefully glued in place to allow it to stand out a little from the image. The papers are from a kit called Vineyard from Tinker & Co, the flowers are Prima. I used Nestabilities to make the two labels, my Martha Stewart punch made a rare appearance, and the ribbon was from Ribbon Oasis. The image was coloured with Pro Markers. I hope you like it xxx

Hello there! What a lovely card to wake up to here in Canada :)

Ahh Twinkle Toes is one of my favorites and you have made such a beautiful card with it. I love all the frilly, girly details and the coloring is just lovely - I see all the shading work you have put into that little image and am so impressed. I just want to reach through the screen and pinch her rosy little cheeks :)

Such a delighted and pretty card Ann! I love the image, it's one of my favourite HM stamps and your colouring is superb. A great idea to paper piece the tu tu, it looks brilliant and adds another dimension to your beautiful card. Chris x
