Try It Out Tuesday #1- Faerie With Rose
Lately all I've wanted to do is sit and color. I've got some of the greatest stamps for my design teams and have had such fun just coloring. It's relaxing in an innocent way that I'd forgotten all about. One of my favorite Christmas presents was a package of crafting supplies from one of my favorite aunts. Crayons, a huge color book, construction paper, scissors, white paste, pencils, it was a dream come true! I would sit for hours and just color. When I opened my package from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, and found this beautiful faerie floating on a rose, I had to color her up!
Our Design Team was asked to create a card using black and white paper with a splash of color so I chose lime green as my splash. When I think of splash, I think of the drink 7-Up! So I went with the green of the bottle. The black and white paper is from the Fantasy package from Dovecraft. This paper is amazing and Susana's store is the only place you can get it in the US. It's a great size, 8x8, and fits any project. She's colored with copics and I've used Pink Poinsettia on her wings. Here's a close up of her.
I love how they glisten! The green ribbon is accented with Lime Scrapper's Floss and the corners are finished off with Oyster Bella Baubles, and Peridot Petals. I love how she came out. She's just so stunning all colored up.
We all need to find something to relax us and take us to a happy, comfortable place if even for just a moment. I've found mine. I hope you find yours.
