I'm tickled pink!!

There's going to be a new challenge blog in town!! Tickled Pink is kicking off a new challenge on Jan. 7th but until then there's a BIG candy on offer - there's 3 prizes and all of them utterly delicious!! Check it out HERE and don't forget to become a follower!

It's going to be so much fun!!

The blinkies aren't ready yet but I thought I'd celebrate with a card!

Meet Lil Lolita Lilith!!! She is coloured with Prismacolour pencils on kraft card which I got this morning from Dorcas. Yeah. You're right. I HAD TO make a card right away. This Prismacolour craze of mine WILL eventually pass, you'll just need to be very, very patient...lol

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Wanted pad which is utterly delicious. I dabbed everything in sight with glittery texture paint I found in my drawer while looking for cream acrylic paint which I KNOW I have but STILL haven't found. I'm organized like that.

I dug out some old Primas and sprayed them with glimmer mist. Then I added loadsa lace and voila - a card!!!

I might as well enter some challenges:
Pear Tree Designs - sketch
Karber Weekly - DIGI STAMP and sparkle
One Stitch At A Time - glitz it up 
Craft Your Days Away (2 weeks) - texture 
Charisma Cardz (3 entries) - for a girl 
Delightful Challenges - flower power 
Fab 'n' Funky - anything goes 
Cute Card Thursday - previous challenge (Tic Toc!) 
Tuesday Throwdown - Embellish It 
Wee Memories - ribbon 
The Pink Elephant - Red, Blue, Green 

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Dorcas said...

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous job with that kraft and prismacolors! Really awesome job, my goodness the colors just pop right off the paper. If you're anything like me that craze won't leave too quickly!
And I'm glad cos there's just something about it, you want to stare at it for ages, its like pastels or something. SO how does the USA Kraft compare with the UK? About the same?

Archies Mum said...

Viv said...

Woohooo! You better keep on playing with those prismas, looks FAB!
And that paper is to die for ...and your craft room must be like mine, things disappear only to be found when looking for something else (like my best scissors, found them in a box of ribbon and lace!).
Laughed my socks off about sneaky Vicar! They just ask for it , I've run over Abbie's tail more than once or twice when I backed up the seat!

Kellie Winnell said...

Totally gorgeous card, Annika. Love everything about it. Maybe Dorcas sending you some Kraft paper might slow her down a tad! LOL.

I don't mind the Prismas. Keep 'em comin'! I love this paper pad too and that texture paint was just the ticket. Going to check out the TP blog. I love that Luca birthday stamp. He makes me think of the guy in Oasis's Importance of Being Idle vid. Top hat, cane, and all. Fantastic card Annika!

Such a stunning card, I don't know where to start.....well for a start, if this is your first time with Kraft, you are a real talent. Really eyecatching colouring and I just love all the layers you have to your card. Like the effect with the glittery texture paint - and you just know you'll find your cream acrylic paint when looking for something else entirely don't you lol. Hugs lin
