Best Wishes Fairy
Hi everyone, and happy Thursday!
This week's SCS color challenge is Certainly Celery, Pacific Blue and Basic Gray. I have a hard time with gray, but it's the second panel on my card~ it's in there! I do, however, LOVE the Pacific and Celery together! I combined this with the sketch from Paper Craft Planet, a cool new community for obsessive paper crafters like myself~ check it out!
I started with a Pacific cs base, then added a gray panel. My third panel is a combination of Pacific and Celery cs that I embossed using the Fiskars texture plate. I stamped my fairy two times on white cs. I water colored them both with ink pads and a water pen, then I cut out one image with a circle cutter, inked the edges of the circle, and shaded it slightly with chalk. I shaded the fairy dust trail with chalk also and added some Stickles for sparkle. The second image I cut out just the fairy and adhered her with dimensionals to the first image. I added the stamped,colored and cut butterflies to the focal panel, stamped the sentiment, punched it out with a rectangle punch, inked the edges and matted it with Pacific cs. I felt it needed something more so I added some 'Faith dots' around the panels.
I Hope you're having a wonderful day and smiling a lot!
Hugs and Smiles~~ Denise
