I then covered it with pink cardstock and a designer paper layer, measured for holes and then made holes for them with an awl.
in those holes I fitted some eyelets so that it would hold the ribbon a bit better.
whilst giving that some drying time, I coloured in the carnival 2015 image, (using lots of pink, and glitter!)
I originally gave her a more sheer looking pair of tights /pantyhose, but I was getting frowned at by Ms carnival herself, and had to redo them in a brighter pink….
I then spent an intense hour or so fussy cutting her with my blunt decoupage scissors…. hoping I didn’t accidentally cut anything off in the process! luckily she survived unscathed, with a sigh of relief from myself!
I added cotton candy stickles, and glued her to the plaque, then cut my lettering using my scan n cut… ran that through my sticker maker and stuck down… more glitter, on those, and the edges, and then finally liquid pearls, and once dry, the pink hanging ribbon 🙂
I’m glad it cheered sue up and hopefully if you wanted to do the same sort of thing for a friend, I’ve given you some inspiration!
