Little Diva - Tiddly Inks Challenge

 Hi ya everyone!
  This week at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog we want to see YOUR inner Diva!  I am about as far from a Diva as one can imagine - but my soon to be 8yr. old - well she's got that attitude that doesn't stop...so I thought of her when I made this card!  Her favorite colors are pink and black together...I've used most of my Echo Park paper that's pink and black so I decided to go out on a limb and make my own.  I cut a 4.75 square of white card stock and penciled in the word Diva at the top.
 I then outlined it and with a few Tim Holtz inks - worn lipstick and shabby shutters I painted the word.  Then I used my cranberry glimmer mist on the whole thing.  I dried it with my heat gun and then took some Teresa Collins clear stamp alphabet letters and stamped Diva all over.  I then added a swirl pattern from Inkadinkadoo stamp set and accented a few letters and swirls with white gel pen.  While this was drying I colored this ADORABLE little Diva called By Royal Decree in my Copics.
I punched some flowers and layered them.  I added a number rhinestone for some shine because honestly what's a Diva without a little bling?   I also had these little royalty charms that I bought from Michaels a while ago and decided to add those too!  
 Head over to the Tiddly Inks store and pick up a DIVA of your own and join us for our Tiddly Inks Challenge!
