Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #42 ~ Wings Challenge

Good Morning, wow has it been two weeks already?...
There's so much going on behind the scenes I forget to add interesting posts to my blog, well at least my fortnightly challenges keep me active on here, we have a lovely theme challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
It's all about wings, so I went for a special fairy she has a butterfly friend (obviously). I started by drawing my fairy using the curly fringe style from the mini profile templates and the winter fairy wingswith plain old pencil and drew her a hand too using mini poseable hand as her friend needed a perch.
I have stamped her features with the coordinating face stamp with either grey or black inks. The butterfly was created using the butterfly pieridae set, I masked the large wing before stamping the back wing, I just love how well this works :)
So, the whole thing was coloured using copic markers, yum It's been awhile since I've coloured anything quite so big, I cut an A4 to 6", I had done the whole sheet but didn't like the arm placement so trimmed the bottom off, as you do.
I was trying to achieve a soft nearly watercolour look with my copic colour choices, it was quite a challenge. Her wing didn't come out as I had imagined and I ended up covering the whole thing in wink of stella glitter.
I then decided to make this a tri fold card and finished off with an adorable little sentiment from the whimsical woodland set 1(fox)

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #41 ~ Sketch Challenge

Good Morning, wow September already...
Today we have a new sketch challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
I used quite a few stamps on my christmas card, 
I went for a fun colour combo for the snowflake background, 
Then I just had to stamp my all time favourite deer and although the sentiment is a little lost I think it still kinda works... I might just need some bright pink embossing powder.
I finished off my card with a little hint of houndstooth and a little sparkle on the antlers not that the camera picks it up. It's nearly a one layer card, certainly flat enough.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #40 ~ Picture Inspiration

Good Morning...

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the current challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
It's a picture inspiration and just perfect with our last release... 
I created a small layered card, I am enjoying this small card size, I have a theory that these little ones would most likely be placed right at the front of all the other cards on the mantle or window sill... lol that's my reasoning.
For my background, it was a simple heat embossing through the polka dot stencil, it's much quicker than stamping the rows of polka dots, not that I mind that really.
The mini shroom scene inspired from the picture was a bit of stamping and masking using the Whimsical woodland set 4 and Whimsical Woodland set 3.
I finished off my card with a little gold ink on the smile word substrate. If you ever want a gorgeous yummy shimmery gold ink then I highly recommend this liquid metal stuff... yum.

I actually combined a few other challenges on my mini card...

Penny black ~ Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday ~ Anything Goes
