Mojo Monday & Papertake weekly challenges

I hope you all had a good weekend! We've had a lovely day at Landmark today (an adventure park near Aviemore). The girls had an excellent time climbing on all the things, now that the summer queues have died down!!

This evening I have a card that is for two challenges. I made this for one of my daughter's friends from her ballet class.

Firstly, I have used the sketch from the Mojo Monday blog.

The ballerina girl image is called 'Elise prepares'. I downloaded it from the website Sketching Stamper digi-stamps. I printed it off and coloured it in with my promarkers.

The circles are all cut with my nestabilites. I have added faux stitching around the edges for this week's challenge on Papertake Weekly which is 'faking it'!!

The background papers are Papermania. I have then sprayed some of them with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Rich Gold. It is the first time I have used these sprays and I am not entirely happy with the effect - will need to practice!!

The chipboard numbers and dots were from Papermania. I have painted them with Anita's metallic black acrylic paint. When dry I covered this in Stickles glitter glue.

Well, I think that's about it! Thanks for looking!!
