Welders Arc causes distress..................read all about it!!!!!!

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today this post should be read in the form of the evening standard (or the local paper in your own area)  

Doctors are treating a crafting lady for Welders Arc Eye after she was found in a dazed state peering endlessly at her paper trimmer, whilst holding her craft scalpel, whilst looking a little little flushed, puzzled and shouting profanities at a high level, aggravating the neighbours and distressing the family dog.  

Neighbours were said to have found the individual concerned in her Beach Hut, surrounded by foil mirror card and fluff.

Doctors have provided sunglasses to the local neighbourhood and the crafting lady has been prescribed with Welders Goggles, mittens and a frilly apron.  All sharp objects have been removed from the vicinity during this time.

In translation, 

do not buy lime green foil mirror card along with shocking pink glitter card, with cerise foil mirror card and a slightly paler butterfly imprinted pink foil mirror card to create a 16th Girly Birthday Card, even at the request of a good neighbour

this will avoid the spotlights in the craft room reflecting continuously on the mirror card as you are trying to create with it.  

Remember when you look at the sun and see a black spot, well think of the same thing but all I could see was orange and all the neighbours thought I had a glitter ball working on the ceiling with the spotlights to compliment it.

Here is what I was creating and you will see why
The base colour and complimenting colour is lime green mirror card.  The first layer is shocking pink glitter card, layered on this is the cerise mirror card with a frame of the lime green mirror card and on top of this the slighlty paler butterfly printed pink mirror card.  The image seems quite bland in comparison.  This is "Tinkerbell" at the request of the neighbour.    Glitter glued butterflies floating around her, and the lime green bow to set it all off.  The sentiment is computer generated and a small circle nestie used to cut it out, framed in the lime green and a shocking pink half a large feather.   Got the butterflies in gold from the Hobby House recently and I coloured them with green to make a lime green mirror finish and added a small shocking pink pearl to the bodies.  She is coloured in copics with a clear glitter sakuro pen for her wings

Not really sure if this will fit in any challenges, so this is what I found for it to got in
