Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge - Hip to be Not-Square (or a Rectangle)



This week over on Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge the challenge is to make any card as long as it's not a square or rectangle.  
As you can see my card is a Teapot shape and the beautiful image is from CJ at Cowgirl Up Designs.  This is 1 of a series of Teacup Fairies.  Unfortunately, my mojo deserted me when I made this card and I know I haven't done this little lady justice.  I'm sat here now looking at her and I can see where I could have used some stickles and some glossy accents.  I cut the teapot on my Craft Robo using the little teapot on the image as my template.  The image was coloured with Copics and Promarkers.
I've gone back and added stickles, Anita's 3D gloss finish and liquid pearls and as usual I couldn't wait for them to dry so I ended up putting my hand in it (again). Here are 'before' and 'after' pictures. You may have to look closely but the after card is definitely more sparkly.
