Summer Fairy

Hi there!  Happy Thursday!  Hope you've had a good week so far!  Only one more day until the weekend!  I'm going to be out this afternoon so I popped in to share the card I made for the July/August Challenge on Elisabeth Bell's World, but I just realized I missed the deadline by a day.  Oh well.  The theme this time was "summer scene".  My card is also for Tuesday Morning Sketches #160 (pick from 4 sketches) and Wild Orchid Challenge #57 (summer flowers).

Here are the TMS sketches:


Here is my card with the sketch in the lower right corner:


I used Papertrey Aqua Mist cardstock for my base and mats and layered with patterned papers from the Webster's Pages Sunday Picnic/Everyday Poetry Petite Papers.  My sweet summer fairy is Fleur from Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I stamped her on Copic X-Press It and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Diamond Stickles to her waistband, wings and the flower center.  I added a Wild Orchid Crafts Mixed Pink Tone Rose and two Cream Aster Daisies.  A couple of pink pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of Fleur:



Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your day and hope to see you again soon!

  3. Such a wonderful sketch, bummer about missing the deadline though, I've done that a couple times. As always, your coloring is so amazing. I swear I learn a little trick or two every time I see one of your cards. Very beautiful overall.
