Ballerina Bar Work and Bunting

Good morning, it's Susie here this morning with the cute Ballet set from Clare Brown.  And, for the second time in a row, I've used pink, although I have sneaked my favourite turquoise into the ballerina's outfit and stamping!

The pink dotty card is from one of Sarah's A Few of My Favourite Things sets and provided the perfect background for my scene.  I stamped the ballerina onto some white card and a post it note, cut around the post it note ballerina's legs, skirt and hand and placed her on top of my card ballerina.  I carefully stamped the bar on top.

When the post it note mask was removed, it left my ballerina holding onto her bar!  

I also stamped my ballerina onto scraps of dotty and mint card and cut out her tutu from the pink card and the detail from the mint card and assembled her paper-pieced costume.  (At this stage, it might be easier to colour the skin of your ballerina, before sticking her outfit on, rather than leaving it until later as I did.) 

The outer edges of her tutu were coloured with a pink promarker, so that the white is not seen when I layer her outfit.  I curled her outfit with my scissors, added some glue and a small foam pad to the card ballerina and the stuck her paper-pieced tutu into position.  

The pink dotty card is so pretty that I decided, again, to cut around the top of my scene to expose more if the prettiness.

I also really love this journalling card from Sarah's Wonderful Day set and decided that, whilst the clouds didn't suit my scene, I could use the bunting, so carefully cut it out and curled the flags with my scissors and assembled it to my picture.

Just a bit of stamping, some Stardust Stickles and turquoise gems and my card was complete:0)
