In a Sweet Pea Dream #8 Ribbons and Bows

Basic Grey, Fairy, In a Sweet Pea Dream, My Minds Eye, Sweet Pea Stamps 2 Comments »

Hope everyone is having a happy Wednesday!  I created this card today for both the “In a Sweet Pea Dream” Blog challenge #8 and the sketch challenge at SCS.  The stamps is Caron Vinson’s Moonlight Fairy From Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps.  Love her sweet face. I cut her out and popped her up for some dimension, and then cut out her wings for a second time for another layer.  Added stickles to her wings and the mushroom for some shimmer.  I thought the bottom need something, so I stitched a swirl, not sure if I like it, still deciding!  I used my Cuttlebug and Basic Greys plaid embossing folder for the textured background, and found a fairy charm that ALMOST mirrors my Moonlight Fairy that I just had to use.  I’m the worlds worst ribbon user, (and ribbon being the theme for this weeks challenge at Sweet Pea really did make this a challenge!)  It took me forever to just get the ribbon tied decently, but for as awful as I know I am with it, don’t think it turned out to bad.  Definately a fun image to work with.

Supplies:  Stamps; Sweet Pea Caron Vinson’s Moonlight Fairy, Cuttlebug, Basic Grey Embossing Folder, Stickles, Thread, Jewels, Ribbon, Fairy Charm, Paper; My Minds Eye.  Colored with Copics.

Halloween would not be complete without a Witchboard/Ouija board.  Is it a toy or a portal to the spirit realm?  Will it bring enlightment for the seeker or disaster?   I have always had a fasination with these magical looking boards, so when I saw this fantastic stamp at  Third Coast Rubber Stamps I had to have it.  Third Coast has an awesome collection of stamps!  Be sure to check out their latest new releases here.
