I am a little tired today…I’m getting my youngest ready to head back to college on Wednesday and her first apartment. Never an easy task. This time around it means I’m giving up the table in my craft studio for her kitchen area and today I made the ultimate sacrifice and gave up the couch in my office for her living room. Sniff, sniff….I love this couch. I sit on it almost every day to read, work, make notes, sit on a phone call…I will miss this couch. But we can’t afford to buy her a whole couch right now so this was the only choice…sniff, sniff….
So, between cleaning the craft paint off the top of the table from my craft room and moving everything around in there and cleaning the table that has been sitting in the garage to replace it (let’s see how this goes) and moving things into the living room in anticipation, it’s been a busy day. But, I still needed to get some creative time in to stay on track with the Colour It Up Challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. Only one day left and I haven’t missed a day yet! I’m not about to start now!
So, my choice today was to help pick me up a bit…
Funny how I create the cards that I need to be sent!!
The stamp I used is a retired one from Kraftin’ Kimmie called Fairy Loved. I coloured her in with my Spectrum Noirs and Copic Markers. Oh and because I think fairies sparkle, I brush her all over with Wink of Stella in Clear.
Skin: E00, EO4, E11
Hair: PP1, BP1
Outfit: HB1, HB2, HB3
I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Hybrid Inks in Mermaid Melody and Purple Pansy on the edges of the base card and then on each of the stamped image card and the sentiment card.
The purple and gold foil bow paper is from a 6×6 pad from Forever in Time called Foil Fancy in Gilded Chic.
The sentiment stamp is a Penny Black stamp called Happy Thoughts which I stamped in the KKS Purple Pansy.
I pop dotted the image card and the sentiment card but I used a flatter pop dot on the sentiment card so it would sit below the fairy. I knew I wanted to do the sequin trail from the fairy’s hand. I used sequins from Craft Medley in Viola and Buttons Galore & More’s 28 Lilac Lane collection in Mixed Berry. I add glue in each spot I want a sequin with a pointed wooden skewer stick and then I place the sequin…a few choice sailor words later, I have a sequin trail!
One happy little fairy reminding me to think happy thoughts!
Thanks for stopping by!
