La-La Land Crafts: Inspiration Monday!

Hi everyone! I'm here again today for La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday. I've been having a BLAST playing along with the LLLC design team this month and am super excited to have another full month in July to create with Irina's uber talented designers.

This Monday's challenge is to create a circle card! I decided to color up Ballerina Marci. Believe it or not, I have never colored her up before. I had so much fun coloring her with my Copic markers... I just ADORE her!

First, here are some pics...

Color Medium: Copic markers & At You Spica Glitter Pen

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Eyes: BG01
Lips: R20
Hair: C3, C5, C7, C9
Hair tie: R000, YR00, G24, Peach At You Spica Glitter Pen
Dress/Shoes: R000, YR00, Peach At You Spica Glitter Pen

I used Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime papers and lots of I Am Roses flowers to embellish around Ballerina Marci. I cut the circle card using my Spellbinders Circle and Scallop Circle Grande Nestabilities. Do you spy glitter on the trim of Marci's skirt and on the large white rose? I love the Martha Stewart extra fine glitter -- adds the perfect touch of shine to any project. The tear drop pearls are from my friend Karla's Etsy and the butterflies are punched out using Martha Stewart butterfly punches. I fussy cut a fairy from the paper collection and have her blowing kisses at Marci... love it! hehe!

Be sure to check out the La-La Land Craft blog to see what the other Team Monday designers have to share with you. We also encourage you to play along and post your card(s) over at the LLLC Customer Gallery! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
