Ivy Wings

Tuesday, 3 September 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all well?
My niece is so excited about starting school tomorrow!  I'm not sure how long her excitement will last - my nephew started P2 yesterday and is complaining about homework already! lol!  She's so cute in her wee uniform though!

We have a new challenge today from the Creative Card Crew and our sponsor for the next fortnight is Delicious Doodles - I love their digi stamps!

Their offering 4 digi's to one lucky winner!

So our challenge this fortnight is....

Things with wings!

The DT were supplied with images from Delicious Doodles and here's what I did:

The image is called Ivy Fairy and I coloured her with the following copics: Skin (lot's of it!); E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E47,44,43,40. Wings and ivy; YG97,95,93,91. Background; E37,35,33,30,W3,1.

The papers I used are Basic Grey, Hello Luscious.  I used a Umount (I think it's a Sheena Douglas set) to stamp swirls around the image with versamark and I used Super Sparkle holographic Embossing powder.  I also did this on the design paper.  It's hard to get a picture of it but it is really lovely and sparkly in real life.
A Spellbinders Grand Nestibility Decorative Element was used for the circle and I distressed the papers with Frayed Burlap DI.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

The same layout and papers were used for the inside.  I didn't add a sentiment so it can be used for any occasion.

So take a look at what the rest of the DT have done at the Creative Card Crew and let us see what gives you wings!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Friday Sketch Challenge; Sketch - I added a bit of ribbon, I hope that is OK?
Craft Your Passion Challenge; Do you believe in fairies?
Cute Card Thursday; Things with wings
A Gem Of A Challenge; Use 2 backing papers
Ohh La La Challenge Blog; Pearls & swirls

Thanks for looking - I'll be back later with the winner of my blog candy!
