It's Not All Black and White

Bling, Bling...Hello?

A little while ago, I made this card for {Caardvards} Bling, Bling...Hello? contest. Well, today is the deadline, and I'm squeezing another card in just under the wire. This is Melanie by Rubber Romance. Isn't she stunning? So stylish. I got her in my Eclectic Paperie order.

All the designer papers are from the Perhaps 6x6 paper pad by Basic Grey. I also used Stampin' Up's basic black and whisper white. I colored Melanie with prismacolor pencils and gamsol after stamping with black StazOn. I added a rock to her finger. Doesn't she just look like she's showing it off. And a couple more rhinestones on her shoes, which I had given a coat of Sakura black gelly roll pen. I also highlighted her bags with Stickles (Lime green, Fruit Punch, and Star Dust).

The white dots around the green circle layer are faux eyelets. You just punch a hole with your paper piercer and draw around it with a white gel pen. Lastly, I added a strip of beads to the bottom with Sticky Strip. The "hello" is by Papertrey Ink, done in Versamagic purple hydrangea.

The goods:
Stamps: Melanie by Rubber Romance, Paper Tray by Papertrey Ink
Ink: black StazOn, Versamagic purple hydrangea
Paper: Perhaps by Basic Grey, basic black and whisper white by SU!
Other: Halcraft beads, sticky strip, Stickles, Coluzzle, rhinestones, prismacolor pencils, gamsol, sakura gelly roll pen in black, white gel pen, paper piercer

You enter it last minute and WIN it! Wow! Good job girl! I just entered my first Cardvaark contest this morning....you have to use three different papers from different manufacturers--duh, I do that all the time! It was a no brainer! I entered this past Saturday's card, which I love! Congratulations Bethany! It was an awesome card!
