So I'm taking a break from Tax Season and all of the other things I SHOULD be doing to play along over at Paper Smooches monthly challenge! Did you know that Kim is back at it... creating up a storm of new products each month? I wanted to use this month's beautiful floral set and set out to do so when I saw that beautiful Fairy Bear sitting on my table... I had colored her up during the last 30 Day Coloring Challenge and she's been waiting patiently each day to see if it was her time to shine on a card... and I knew I had to get her on something! So I decided to create this using this month's Sketch. I flipped the sketch because it worked better for me with my Fairy Bear's wings and I had to move my word a bit so as not to cover up those pretty flowers:
Isn't she just the sweetest?? She's from the So Fairy Cute stamp set released in February! I'm thinking for this one she's been hard at work all day long spreading cuteness and good wishes and she's taking a break to just enjoy the moment. I'm glad you can kinda see the glitter I added using some Stickles to her wings and skirt, star and crown.
And these mushrooms and tiny flowers!!! SO sweet! The Mushroom dies are also from the February release and those tiny flowers are from the Mini Flowers set. I left all of my mini flowers attached and cut them all at once out of a few colors of paper to mix and match... less chance I'll lose those teeny tiny dies and I get a bunch cut at once... leftovers go in the package with the dies and they'll get used on some other project. Same with the mushrooms although the stems are all neatly attached in one area so I did separate that bunch from the tops. And those sweet little grass tufts are from Kat Scrappiness and they were perfect with the mushrooms and flowers.
I used the new Fab Frames dies and this Hi sentiment is included in the center! LOVE that Kim filled the space with this sweet word die! And for the first time in a long time I made sure to save the Dot for my "I" since it was that sweet heart! Oh! And that sky?? I used an MFT cloud stencil to create that with some Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick.
Just a few sweet sequins and I was done!
I'm playing along with a few challenges today:
Of course, Paper Smooches Sketch Challenge (sketch is above)!
At Kat Scrappiness the challenge is to use Pastels... this is pretty Pastel-y for me!
Over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge, they're challenging us to use No Designer Paper on our creations.. and I've done just that!
And at Cupcake Inspirations it's all about Woodland Creatures! Does a bear sit in the woods? She sure does! (Do I hear groans out there??)
