Talented Trio for PPA330

May 13, 2016 2 Comments

It’s almost recital season.  Another of our “lasts” before we start on a new round of “firsts”. So as I was thinking about what I might like to make today, recital and little girls in tutus popped into my head.  After stopping by the PPA challenge for this week, I knew I wanted to use that sketch and Talented Trio (before it retires).

Here’s what came of combining Talented Trio with PPA300

Talented Trio for PPA300 from theartfulinker.com

I started with a thick Whisper White base (8-1/2″ x 5-3/8).  Then I matted a 3-15/16″ x 5-1/8″ piece of Birthday Bouquet designer paper on a 4-1/16″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Blushing Bride cardstock.   This panel was then adhered to the Whisper White base.

Next, I added a 1-3/4″ x 5-1/8″ piece of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper to the center of the designer paper panel.

I stamped the ballerina from Talented Trio in Smoky Slate on Shimmery White cardstock.  The lighter gray gives a nice outline without being too bold.

Using a Blender Pen, I added layers of Blushing Bride ink (from the lid of the ink pad) to the tutu and pointe shoes.

Tip: I like to color where the shadows are first and run the color out as I move across the object I am coloring.  That way I don’t end up with lots of different dark spots.  Leaving some white space is ok too.

After cleaning my Blender Pen tip, I used it to pull ink from the lid of my Pink Pirouette ink pad.  I used this ink to color the tights.  At our studio all tights are a pale pink.  Then, I used even less ink on the arms and for the face — just a hint of rosy cheeks.

Next, the hair was colored with my Blender Pen and ink from Cajun Craze and Soft Suede ink pads to create a kind of coppery hair color.

Finally, I used an Aqua Painter to paint on some Versamark ink refill to the ruffle on the tutu.  Then, I dusted it with Heat and Stick.  After heating slightly, I sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds and heat to set.

The finished ballerina piece was layered onto a 2-7/16″ x 3-3/8″ piece of Blushing Bride.  Then this whole piece was added to the card front using dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I inked “Shine”, from Sunburst Sayings, with Versamark and stamped on Vellum.  Don’t forget to rub your Embossing Buddy over the Vellum first (it’s pretty static-y).  “Shine” was heat embossed with Silver.

The Vellum was cut with one of the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits.  I hid my glue behind the embossed letters.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my recital worthy card.
