Magic

Hi everyone and happy Monday! :) I hope your week is off to a great start. I'm super excited to share my cards with you today. A few weeks ago, I was browsing Splitcoast and saw some gorgeous fairy and mermaid images from a company called Sweet Pea Stamps. As those of you who have followed me for a while know, I love anything that has to do with fairy tales or magical things, so of course, I had to check them out. I was in Heaven when I went to Sweet Pea Stamps and discovered ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection.





For my first card, I used an image called Red Hearts. Isn't she gorgeous? I just love her. I colored her with copics and added glitter to her wings and along the outside of her wings. I then created my card using cardstock from SU (Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, and Rose Red). The design paper is a combination of paper from My Mind's Eye (Laundry Line collection) and DCWV's Once Upon a Time collection. I decided to make the image the central focus of the card so I didn't add a sentiment or any extra embellies (I know, that's totally odd for me) :):)




For my second card today, I used an image called Winter Watcher. I colored the image with copics and added Glossy Accents to the eyes (this doesn't really show in the photograph, but it really is a great touch). I then created my card using SU cardstock (Brocade Blue and Night of Navy) and My Mind's Eye design paper. I added a ribbon, which I tied with my Bow Easy and Prima flowers. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps. For a finishing touch, I added three pearls to the bottom left hand corner. What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by, it truly means so much to me. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow! :)

Hugs, Christine
