"W"ednesday Wee Flower Fairy


Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy "Hump Day!" Wednesday is a good day because the weekend is just around the corner! I hope this post finds you well. I'm so happy to see that you've stopped by! Thank you!

Today is "W"ednesday at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Becky and I have cards to share. I hope you like them! Today, I have chosen to use a stamp from the Flower Fairies Wee Stamp Set by Sylvia Zet. I especially love this set as you get three greetings, two fairies, and a little flower cluster grouped together. It's a really great bargain, too! I was inspired by the gorgeous work of Elaine Livesey. Her coloring technique and card design is stellar! She is a such a dear and so very helpful! ((((hugs Elaine))))

Here is my card:





My image was colored using Distress Inks and Derwent Watercolor Pencils. I did not use the Derwent Inktense this time, just the regular pencils. I'm finding that using both mediums gives me the ability to get some depth of color. I used the most yummy Pion papers entitled Vintage Garden. These papers are so beautiful, I just cannot bring myself to cover them up! So, this card is missing a lot of embellies, LOL!

The beautiful ribbon was sent to me by my sweet friend, Rosie. Thank you hun! (((hugs to you))) The ribbon, color and flowers printed on the ribbon, are a perfect match with the Pion paper. The color of the ribbon in the photo is a little off. It matches the color of the printed images with perfection! My paper on which I stamped the image also is showing an off color. It is the same off white as the Pion papers. I wonder how to fix that? The sentiment is a mini from Magnolia-licious. Because it is a mini, it's one I use so much of the time. You can find it here. The card stock is Bazzill. I had one sheet of this deep rose color so I thought I'd use it up. It's probably discontinued now, LOL. The little flowers are from Impression Obsession. The scrollwork die behind the image mat is Joy Craft.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! I hope my card will give some inspiration.

XO,

Chris
