Tickled Pink Stamps DT - Lil Greek Gods previews

 Woohoo!!  Are you loving the Greek God previews at Tickled Pink Stamps as much as I am??  The images are stunning and the Pink Ladies are really outdoing themselves with their creations!  Today we are previewing Lil Greek Goddess Lolita Orpheus Kellita.  She is just so beautiful with her tumbling locks!  I had such fun with this card.  I wanted to create a 3D card with a greek temple for her to be standing in and had this idea to try to make some columns and they worked, thank goodness!  The papers are by 7 Gypsies distressed with walnut stain distress ink.
 I have coloured Kellita with copics and cut her out completely so she can stand beautifully next to her white alabaster columns LOL.
 The columns were created with white cardstock and the plinths on top are tab nesties.  I've inked here and there with walnut stain distress ink to add a bit of definition and then added a gorgeous leafy vine of ribbon around one of the columns and some tiny butterflies to the other.
 There are butterflies everywhere on this card - I went a little crazy with my butterfly punch LOL - I think I've had withdrawal symptoms from not using it for months due to making Christmas cards!
 The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist for a gorgeous lush shine.
 The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and yep there are more butterflies around the sentiment LOL.
 I have added some more leaf vine ribbon to the right of the columns and a rose and yet more butterflies LOL.  I have added an acetate quarter circle to the back of the column so that I could have the illusion of a butterfly seemingly fluttering in the air above the card.
I hope you like it!  Pop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see the rest of the pink ladies' gorgeous cards.  Thanks for looking! x
