Pixie Magic





Hello everyone and happy Sunday :) I'm finally back :) I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are having a wonderful weekend. We had a lovely Thanksgiving and then hubby and I braved the crowds Friday and Saturday for some shopping. It really wasn't too bad at all, we went later in the day so I think we missed the worst of it.

I have two cards for ya today. They both use images from the Faerie Song Art Stamps collection at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. The first card uses Bryony. These stamps are awesome, they stamp beautifully and are a dream to color. I stamped Bryony with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Papertrey Ink white cardstock and colored her in with copics. I added Stickles to her wings and used my Sakura glitter pen to accent the flowers in her hair. I next created my card base out of SU's Sage Shadow. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by Perfect Plum, followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I then mounted my image onto my SU cardstock and adhered the image panel onto the card base using dimensionals. I used my nesties tag trio to create the tag. The sentiment is from High Hopes. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a glittery Making Memories brad.

The second card uses Lost in Thought Faerie. I colored her in with copics and added Stickles to her wings. I used Versamagic Perfect Plumeria ink for sponging around the image. I then created my card base out of SU's Handsome Hunter. I layered Always Artichoke on top of that followed by Elegant Eggplant followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I then mounted my image onto my SU cardstock and used my SU ticket corner punch on all the corners. I placed pearls on all the corners and mounted my image panel onto my card base using dimensionals. The ribbon is from M's and the flowers are Primas.

I hope you like the cards. I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)
