You know, I've been doing too many cards lately! It makes me forget how I love to make a great layout! The challenge at Prairie Fairy Fridays is "Inspired by a Nursery Rhyme". There are so many wonderful images at Prairie Fairy Designs that would work for this challenge! I chose the beautiful Twinkletoes to work with. It made me think of doing "This Little Piggy" with my girls. Then I remembered that when Emily (my middle daughter) was five years old, she had her own version of "This Little Piggy"!
I traced a cutout from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die - Ornamental with a Copic .3 Black Multiliner to add a little detail. After cutting out a full butterfly from Tim Holtz Sizzix Die - Fanciful Flight with the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mask Sheets, I used the mask to sponge Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose and Baja Breeze Ink around the outside. I found the ribbon just a little too thick, so I twisted it up and then wound it around the layout, through the Quickcutz flourishes and under the image a few times.
Here's the closeup of Twinkletoes:
I coloured her with my Copic Markers (Pink-R24, R22, R20; Green-YG97, YG17, YG07, YG03; Skin-E21, E00, E000, R20; Hair-E35, E34, YR21, YR20). Here's a closeup of Emily's version of the rhyme (I sprayed the corner with Apple Glimmer Mist):
I love the tags on the layout! I distressed them, stitched them and then put a large brad through the top:
