Dance Recital

This is my post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.

Hello, Diane with you today.
I have several little granddaughters in Dance Recitals
and that is where the idea came for this card.

I used Want To Scrap chipboard Leotard and Tutu for the tutu you see.
I also used Ballet Shoes Stamp set for the shoes
Dance Recital
One of the 'tips' I have read/learned from Sparkle N Sprinkle when using chipboard
is to first use Versamark, then coat it with white embossing powder as it
gives your glitter a great background to adhere to.

After the  white embossing powder was added and heat set,
I traced the leotard top onto Super Adhesive Sheets,
then cut it out and applied it to the top of the tutu,
then adding  Hyacinth Velvet glitter to it, burnishing it with my finger.
Dance Recital
I purchased a roll of organza from a local craft store and gathered a
section of it for the tutu, using a glue gun to attach it to the leotard top.

I made a Rosette to add using a Peach Pull Ribbon,  then attaching
a Crown Charm from Want 2 Scrap.
Dance Recital
I stamped the sentiment in Coffee embossing powder,
also part of the Ballet Stamp set.
For the Ballet Shoes, I stamped them with Tuxedo Black Ink,
colored with Copics, then applied Dimensional  Glue and added
more of the Hyacinth Velvet Glitter to the shoe.
Dance Recital
I finished by adding Nuvo Crystal Drops Crushed Grape.
