My daughter Taylor (age 9) named this one "The Cookie Fairy". Ever since I discovered Whiff of Joy Stamps, I thought that a lot of these cute little children would look so sweet with wings! I should note that some of them do have wings, I just wanted wings on this girl. Willow with Cookies is so sweet and fun to colour! I coloured her with my Copic Markers (Hair - E99, E97, Y21; Skin - E21, E00, E000; Shirt - R24, R20; Apron - YG97, YG95, YG93; Jeans - B97, B95, B93, B91; Slippers - R24, R20).
I covered the wings in sparkles and curved the top wing up so that it sticks out from the card.
The flower is made out of dryer sheets. No, you heard me right - dryer sheets! I found a tutorial over at Gabrielle's blog Such a Pretty Mess and I just had to try it!
This is rapidly becoming my favourite post of the week! Once a week, I pick 4 or 5 challenges that I love to play (and have awesome prizes, I might add) and make a card to fit the challenges! It is so much fun! So here are the challenges I'm playing today in no particular order:
One Crazy Stamper - Sketch Challenge
I only just discovered that one of my favourite stores has a monthly challenge! I HAVE to play! I buy all of my Copics here! I even bought the stamp I used on this card here! Plus this sketch was just so fun!
Do You Stack Up? - Layers
This is becoming one of my favourite challenges. I love the themes they have! This one is layers and since all of my cards have several layers - easy peasy!
Crafty Creations - Use Baby Blue
Baby blue isn't something I use a lot of, but I had some awesome baby blue patterned paper!
Fairy Tale Challenge Blog - Something for a child or with a child's image.
This challenge is a new one for me. I think the sweet image I used looks just like my daughter, Taylor!
Crafty Purple Frog Challenges - Something with wings
This is what inspired the wings today! The sparkly wings turn a cute little girl into a cute little fairy!
I hope you've all had as much fun as I have! Have a wonderful day!
