Make Believe

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! Boy this week is going by fast. Not that I'm complaining, I'm always happy for the weekend, but I just have so much to get done this week at work and I'm getting a little nervous :) Anyway, I'll keep my chit chat short and get right to my card for today.




For my card today, I'm so excited to share with you another new artist for Sweet Pea Stamps. This beautiful fairy image was illustrated by Meredith Dillman and is called Blue Fairy. Isn't she pretty? She was so fun to color. I colored the image with copics and then lightly sponged around the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink using my Tim Holtz blending tool. Next I added some Stardust Stickles to her wings. I then created my card base out of SU cardstock (Perfect Plum and Not Quite Navy). My DP is from K&Co. For some finishing touches, I added a bow (tied with my Bow Easy), dew drops, Primas, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, and swirls made from an EK Success punch. What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Make sure to head over to Sweet Pea Stamps and check out all the new artists. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)
