Fairy Greetings

Good morning! I've created an adorable card for that special little lady in your life. I chose to leave off a sentiment because I loved her just the way she was sitting in the grass.

I used the Toreads, Flora stamp set for this card. I colored her in using my Spectrum Noir Markers (FS2, FS3, FS5, FS9, BG3, BG4) and my Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils (009, 120, 119, 117, 112, 017, 047, 058, 089) and blended together using the Spectrum Noir Blending Solution and Paper Stumps. I just love how the pencils and markers work so well together. I use pencils on anything with very small details, such as this image, to be able to add definition and blend in small spaces!

Then I decided she needed some little pearls in her floral headband. I fussy cut her out and to me, it looks like she is sitting atop something. So I took a grass die and cut out grass for her to sit on and I tucked her feet behind the second row of grass for dimension so it really looks like she's sitting in the grass!

For the background, I used the Dandelion Embossing Folder with black card stock and rubbed on Memento Luxe ink in Wedding Dress for that chalkboard look. She just pops right off the background. Plus, I colored her hair using grey, so it coordinates without blending right in.

Hope you enjoyed my project for today! Visit Crafter's Companion for all these great products and much more!
