Good morning crafty blog buddies!
How was your weekend and Mother's Day? I had a great weekend, ending Mother's Day night with a breakfast dinner which my hubs cooked up! Pancakes, fresh strawberries and all the fixins for a diet breaker! lol. It doesn't hurt to cheat every once in awhile right?
I meant to have something posted for you all yesterday but I was stuck in laundryville from a long weekend of not getting anything done, where chores were concerned anyways! I finally got through the mounds of laundry and had time to get my craft back on to finish this card I was working on!
For my card today, I used Sweet Sketch Wednesday's adorable little sketch.
For the colors, I drew inspiration from the beautiful DP from my collection of Recollections stacks!
And of course, the absolutely adorable image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. I've actually had this image in my collection for a long time...I think it was one of the first images I bought from Mo's beautiful collection. I just love her fairies!
I tried something a little different, if you will notice I've used watercolor paper. I'm not too sure I'm completely thrilled with the result? It's much more hard to blend and use the Copics on, but I do kinda like the soft feel it leaves as well as the nice texture. I may try it a few more times and see if it grows on me.
Here's a couple more views and closeups...
I made another one of those little glass bubble embellishments, love making those! And I also made a beaded pin...haven't made one of those in ages! And the sentiment is from my newest Fancy labels Occasions set! I changes the colors on this one to match the color tones of the card.
I added some more lace to the inside...I kinda covered it up on the front of the card, lol....
