Do you believe in Fairies?

So this week at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog we ask....Do you believe in fairies???  Who couldn't love them  right? Which Tiddly Ink Fairy is your favorite??  I know I had the hardest time choosing just one to work with this week...trust me you will see a few more in the future...but for now I chose to use one I had not worked with before. So introducing (if you have not met her before)  Sugar Plum Fairy!   She is colored with Copics on Curious Metallics Cryogen White card stock using a Kodak printer. The image is mounted on a simple layer card using BoBunny Enchanted Garden 6 inch Paper pad  and violet shade card stock. Its accented with some BoBunny Enchanted Garden buttons, lace scraps, and paper accents cut out of the paper pad.  The layers are all trimmed with Peacock Feather Distress ink and Diamond Stickles.  The small circles are accented with glossy accents.

and then her dress and wings are accented with Diamond Stickles.

Its back to school with a Tiddly Inks Fab Friday

Hi crafters I hope you are having an amazing week. Ours started off with a nasty bang.....SNOW!!!!  First week of September and snow already...this is crazy even for us. Schools down south had to call snow days in only the second week of school.  I personally had to rush out in the snow and pick all of my veggies.... BOOO.  Needless to say I will be making some green tomato relish. 

But its Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks and to celebrate back to school I made the card featuring the adorable SchoolBoy and Extras  . 

I fussy cut out SchoolBoy  and is  mounted on a multi layer card using a vintage Simple Stories line. Embellishments are vintage brads and buttons.  The sentiment is a Project Life card cut down.

SchoolBoy is colored with Copics on Curious Mettalics Cryogen White Paper.

Skin: E00,E00,E04,E21,E11,R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E29, W3

New Beginnings!

Well its a new school year here and a new adventure for me as well this year. This is my first official post as a member of The Tiddly Inks Design Team!! Yipeeeee! First off thank you to everyone who has supported me up to this point and the Christy for selecting me for the team, and welcome to all the new visitors to my blog! I hope you all follow along on this fun adventure with me . Remember you can also find me on Facebook  by clicking on the Facebook symbol to your right or HERE . If you are a Facebook fan I am always around on the Tiddly Inks Group page checking out your amazing work.  Make sure you share your creations you inspire us as much as we are here to inspire you!.  And keep checking here and on the Facebook page for  Giveaways .. tutorials.. Contests whatever my mood desires. 

 This time the challenge that was given was a color scheme! Its stunning and warm and reminds me of summer (which is slipping away far to quickly here) but its not a color palette I am used to using. But we all have to try new things right???..or is that just  what I say to get my kids   to get them to try something... hmm. Well it worked! It gave me a chance to search through my hoard of  supplies and try something new.  

So here she is darling little Emma from the Celebrate Joyfully set which is available in both Digtial and Clear versions.  She is printed off in 3.5 by 5 inch format on Cryogen White Iridescent Metallic Card stock using my Kodak printer.  She is colored with Copic Sketch Markers , and I tried something new...freckles...Love them but they scare me putting that dark of a color on the face you don't want to screw up right.  :) 

Face/ Skin: E000,E00,E04,E11,E21, R20 E37 (Freckles)
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37, E79, W3
Boots: E13, E15, E18
Pink Dress/ Flower Centers: R02, R32, R43
Orange underskirt: YR00, YR02, YR15, Y38
Leaves: YG03

The card is 5 by 7 format with the base and solid color layer made with Tim Holtz Distress Card stock. The patterned papers are all from the Echo Park Mini Kit Bundle of Joy (Girl). The background layer was run through my Silhouette Cameo with design  " Circle pattern overlay" which I cut at 6.75 by 4.75 inches to fit the card.  The embellishment are random buttons from my button box, I am Roses flowers (which I hand dyed using various ink sprays) , lace medallions from Prima Marketing, and jewels and brads from my random stuff box. The sentiment came from one of my project life card I just cut out the sentiment I wanted.  

Here are come close up veiws of the card. As always I love to hear from you so if you have questions or comments please share them!!!!  Come back tomorrow for detail on the inside of the card!!!

Thanks for stopping by I will see you soon! And I hope you will all play along on....
