Tickled Pink Stamps GDT - Lil Lolita Boutique challenge

Today I have a card to show you as part of my Guest Designing for Tickled Pink Stamps for the Lil Lolita Boutique challenge, which is the challenge dedicated to the gorgeous Lil Lolita stamps! This week Kellie has set a brilliant challenge - to make your own paper!! - I must admit, I don't do this half as often as I should because I always love it when I do!! I used several stamps: Hero Arts; Simon Says Stamp's own brand; Stempelglede and one I'm not sure of the make, together with various distress ink colours. I used the sketch at Mojo Monday for the layout.
I have used Willow (I so love her eyelashes!) and coloured her with copics. I added a touch of stickles to one of the layers on her skirt and her shoes.
The main paper I heavilly distressed and used a lot of colour and stamps, the main focal point being this fab Eiffel Tower stamp from a Simon Says Stamp exclusive set, stamped with black soot distress ink and covered in stickles. For the contrast paper I simply stamped a Hero Arts butterfly in a random pattern with victorian velvet distress ink.
I added two gardenias from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with glimmer mist and a couple of pinky red feathers from a fascinator I bought years ago for a wedding that I have decided can now go in my stash as I never wore it LOL!
The sentiment is from the Whiff of Joy Blooming Spring kit and the lace and ribbon is from my stash.
Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Lil Lolita Boutique challenge this week if you have any of the gorgeous Lil Lolitas! Thanks for looking! x
