Something NEW Challenge (Elzybells with new paper and stamps)
For today's Stamp Something Challenge we are supposed to use something new. I went to Hobby Lobby just yesterday and got me some new goodies. They have papers and stamps 50% off. Who can resist?? The brand new items on this card are the patterned paper by "My mind's eye", as well as the swirly stamp by Paper Inspirations. I received the elzybells fairy image from somebody from SCS from the pay-if-forward images thread.
I found a beautiful sketch on Melissa's blog that I decided to use, but reversed it a little bit so my fairy doesn't seem to by flying off the card.
Image was colored with alcohol makers. I paper pierced free handed around the image. Sponged the egdes with soft sky ink. I added white polka dots to the fairy's dress with SU's white gel pen. Stickles was also added to the dress and the brads. The designer paper was already sparkly. Sentiment is from SU, I also sponged the edges of the sentiment using soft sky ink. Thanks for looking. I hope you like this card!
Stamps: fairy elzybells, quick thinking (SU), floral flourish (paper inspiration)
paper: white 110lb (GP), soft sky -retired, real red (both SU), designer paper out and about (my minds eye)
ink: versafine onyx, real red, soft sky
accessories: creative memories oval cutting system, following by SU: grosgrain ribbon, scallop edge punch, brads, paper piercing tool, white gel pen. Flowers by american crafts, stickles by ranger
