Stampin' For The Weekend - Sketch and colour combo

This week on Stampin' For The Weekend we have a lovely sketch from Sandie together with a colour combo of Yellow and Blue.

Our sponsor this week is Crafts and Me with a cute Sweet Pea stamp.

I used Mo's cute fairy for my card and chose papers from Webster's Pages 6x6 pad, mainly because it had just the soft shades of blue and yellow I was looking for. For added depth I sponged all the edges with Memento inks.



The image is coloured with Copic markers and and the background done with Prismas and plain ol' sponging of Memento inks. I glittered the baby fairy's wings and some details on her dress and created a little water with Glossy Accents - I don't think it shows very well in the picture.

The fancy corner is the same yellow DP covered with double sided adhesive sheet and ran through with Sizzix die, then glittered. Little metal butterflies didn't photograph well, they actually look a lot subtler and very nice. Ribbon and lace from my stash and the sentiment is from The Little Paper Shop.



Copic Colours:
Skin: E13, E21, E00, E000, E02
Dress, flower: Y0000, Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
Hair: E99, YR24, YR12, Y35
Water, wings: BG72, B00, BG000, Bg00000
Stones: W7, W5, W3, W1, G21
Green accents: YG67, YG06, G21

My plan is to give that card to the teachers in my girls play school when she moves on from baby room to toddler room. They are very fond of her and already getting teary, I kid you not!!!

I would like to enter following challenges with this card:
Meljens - Ribbon & Lace
Our Creative Corner - Gotcha Cornered
PaperPlay - something old (the butterflies, had them for AGES)
Hand Full Of Stamps - Water
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Sunshine
Tuesday Throwdown - Summer

Thanks for looking!
Luvs ya all!!!

This is fabulous, love the water you have created for this beauty to frolick in and the butterfly embellies are fabulous!!

On another note, I wanted to get back to you about the red and white striped bow on one of my cards, but I wanted to get back to you with an answer, thus the delay, and sadly, I have no answers, one of my aussie blogger buddies sent it to me in a swap, I have no clue where they get it from but I WANT SOME MORE, lol!!
Hugs,
Stephanne
