Fairy Magic



Hi everyone and Happy Monday :) Sorry for my lack of posting lately. It's been crazy busy around here, but I should be back to my normal schedule this week :) For my card today, I used some of my favorite stamps from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I first stamped the castle scene onto PTI cardstock and colored it with copics. I stamped Bryony onto a separate piece of PTI cardstock, colored her with copics, and cut her out. I added some glitter to the flowers in her hair and to her dress with my Sakura glitter pen and I added Diamond Stickles to her wings.

Next, I created my card base out of SU's Regal Rose. I layered Brocade Blue on top of that followed by Always Artichoke, followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I used SU's ticket corner punch on all corners and added pink rhinestones. I also added a ribbon and bow. I then mounted the castle scene onto my SU cardstock with dimensionals. I then added Bryony to the scene with dimensionals. It's a pretty simple layout, but I wanted the images to take center stage. What do you think?

Don't forget to check out Marti's Blog from Pezadoodle Designs. She is blogging from CHA this week. Make sure to leave a comment on all of her blog posts from CHA for a chance to win some yummy blog candy.

Well, that's it from me today. I hope your week is off to a great start. See you back here tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)
