I made this sweet little card for this week's challenge at Do it With Digis. I get to be a guest Digi Diva over there occasionally. The theme this week is fairies/pixies so I used one of the Prairie Fairy images - Tippy Toe Fairy. She's one of my favorite fairy images from the Prairie Fairy. Her skin and hair were colored with Copics and I took a bottle of Liquid Pearls and an aqua painter and painted her dress and wings with Liquid Pearls. It looks so pretty IRL. Special Birthday Wishes are going out to Kirsty Vittetoe and the gang over at the City Crafter Challenge Blog. The blog is celebrating its first birthday this week. Congratulations on a fabulous first year and wishing you many more!
A little about what I have going on with this card. The lovely DP is from the Ever After pack by Cosmo Cricket and miracle of miracles, I even managed to let some of it show through! How do you like the doily lace? I found a few packs of it and snatched them up to sell in my new Etsy shop. It comes in strips three inches wide and 40 inches long. It will work lovely for card making and scrapbooking! You'll definitely be seeing more of it on upcoming cards! And I had to add another of my fluffy crinoline flowers (tutorial) to which I added a hand folded seam binding rose as a center - I love the pop of color the pink gave. In fact, I liked the pink so much I added a small seam binding bow and found some tiny paper flowers of the same color in my stash that worked perfectly to add a bit of decoration to the doily.
The heart is from an old SU set - Gentler Times. I stamped it on black CS with versamark and embossed it in white. To finish the card off, I added a few black Kaiser pearls and a metal filigree butterfly. I love using metal in my art so I've added metal filigree findings to what I am selling on my Funkie's Junk blog. This sweet butterfly started life as an antique bronze. But I wanted it black to coordinate with my card so I applied Adirondack Alcohol ink in Pitch Black with a felt pad. I think it's so cool to be able to use the alcohol inks to change the color of metals.
That about wraps it up. I hope you will stop over to the Do it With Digis blog and check out what the design team has created. Thanks ever so much for stopping by today!
