Challenge #Use a fairy or angel  Sketch   Crafts4eternity
Challenge #Something cute Stampchallenges

For this project I chose a stamp from Papilio called "Fairy Kitty" and coloured with copic pens, and a couple of glitter pens for the wings.  I used a silver leaf pen for the border edge of the image after cutting with one of the Nesties and I used the same shape to cut frame and same shape again for layering.

The papers were from the Stitchy Bear and I did it creations boutique and I really like these digital papers - have just started collecting.  The cardstock is from Crafters Companion.
The sketch is part of this week's challenge from Crafts4eternity and the flowers are petaloo which have been embellished with star gems.

Challenge #Sketch The Pixie Cottage 
Challenge #Gems and Sparkle Craftsandme

For this project I chose a rubber stamp from Papilio called "Fairy Snow".  I coloured her with copic pens and used a mixture of embossing powders, crystal snow glitter, silver glitter pen and stickles for the wings and snowflakes.  I sprayed a small amount of spray varnish over the whole image and sprinkled some snow glitter to create icy effect.

The papers were from Crafters Companion and the sketch was from Pixie Cottage.  I used some corner peel offs I had from another kit and embellished with snowflakes, (cut using Marianne dies) ribbons and gems.

Any excuse to SHOP

Challenge # Emboss it   Lexis Creations  

For this project I used a digi stamp from the Beary Store called "Christmas Shopping Phoebe" by Lexi Creations.  I coloured this image with copics and used a little stickles on the ear muffs and a silver glitter pen on the scarf. I used a black gel pen for the shoes.  I tried to create the look of suede with the girls jacket/coat.  I also added a coating of varnish to the coat and jeans.

My inspiration for this card was the backing paper.  So the card is suppose to look like a parcel ie ribbon and bow. 

I set some of the backing paper onto cardstock and cut out the parcels, using as embellishments.  I added stickles to the edges to create a sparkly/icy effect and also used a cuttlebug folder (polka dots) and a edge punch (Swiss dots) on backing panel.
