Gwendolyn

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are having a wonderful day. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been a little under the weather (I think it's just allergies), but am feeling better now. I was able to get back into the craft room last night and I have a card to share with you today.




For my card, I decided to ink up this beautiful stamp from Kraftin Kimmmie Stamps. This particular image is called Gwendolyn. I think she's absolutely gorgeous. My coloring truly doesn't do her justice, but I wanted to give it a try anyway :) I inked the image with Memento black ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock and colored it with copics. I used R81, R83, R85, and R89 for her dress and wings, and E29, E35, E37, W6, and W8 for the horse. I added Diamond Stickles to her fairy wings. I then lightly inked around the image with Memento Perfect Plumeria ink. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Chocolate Chip and Rose Red). My design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I added a bow (tied with my Bow Easy), pearls, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great day and I hope to see you back here tomorrow :)

Big Hugs, Christine
