Today I wanted to share this card I made for someone special. Her birthday was last month and I didn't get a chance to make her one. I hope she likes it. I wanted to get a way from the Christmas theme so I pulled out some papers that I purchased at the last EXPO. I thought the pretty Spring colors were very nice and the paper theme would allow me to just add a fun image and maybe a few accessories. When choosing my image I went to some neglected fairies who I have not inked in quite some time. I chose this sweet & sassy fairy from Sweet November, Chanter Heartsong.
I had so much fun coloring her. With this paper I was able to play with some colors that I hardly touch if at all. I finally broke out my Xpress-It paper for this card as I didn't want it messed up while coloring. Although I love my Neenah paper, this Xpress-It paper is pretty awesome. Just need to use it sparingly. I'm not sure if you can see the glittler on her dress, shoes or wings, but it's there. I took my layout from Amy Young's inspirations. I love when she uses the paper to her advantage and then adds those pretty pearls all over the card. I love how the flower anchors the card, but doesn't pull away from Chanter. The butterflies also give the card a whimsical feel. The sentiment is from AmyR. Now if I can make cards like this all the time I would not stress out so much.. LOL!
