Today's card is one that I made last night for Mary Elizabeth's friend, Eve. Her 11th birthday was Friday but they are celebrating it with an indoor pool party this afternoon. Eve is a super sweet girl and member of my GS troop to I wanted to make her card extra special. I paired Stamping Bella's Eloise (I am so in love with their chichiboulie line of stamps) with Basic Grey's Sugared PP. This collection is one of my favorites of the most recent Basic Grey release. The adorable little fairy was first colored with Copic markers. I just added 10 more markers to my collection and although, it is difficult to see in this photograph, I am really starting to feel more comfortable with my coloring and shading when I use these incredible markers. I stamped the skirt twice more on PP and cut the skirt "petals" out, added some Dazzling Diamonds for wonderful sparkle. Next, I adhered some directly to the image while popping others with Stampin' Dimensionals. I felt this gave her a fluttery look. The base of the card is Pretty in Pink CS covered with 2 different patterns of the Sugared paper and joined in the middle with a piece of More Mustard that has been stamped tone on tone with Scalloped Lace Backgrounder from CHF. As those of you who follow my blog know, CHF Backgrounders are some of my favorite stamps and I am excited to say that they are having a Backgrounder Blitz this week leading up to the release of new Backgrounders. Be sure to check on the fun details! Well, sitting is probably one of the most uncomfortable positions for me right now and since Rachel is down for a nap, I think I'll take advantage of some heating pad time! It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
