Fashionista Friday Challenge!

This weeks challenge over at 'If the shoe fits....scrap it!' is to Flutterbys.  Show come on over and show us your project!  Anything with wings in your project. Birds, bees, butterfies, fairies, etc.... 

For this weeks challenge I used a digital image from Wags 'n Whiskers - Angelica fairy.  They have so many super cute images and I am so in love with digis for their space saving ability!

Angelica is colored in with copics - colors used (Skin: E11, E13, E15, Dress: R39, R37, R35, R32, R30 & C9, C7, C5, C3, Shoes & Hair: C9, C7, C5, C3, Wings: BG18, BG15, BG11, BG10, Stars: Y35, Shading: C3, C2, C1, C0)

I used diamond dust and icicle stickles on her wings and yellow stickles on the stars to add some sparkle.  Image was cut out using large oval spellbinder, and matted with crowned ovals. 

Cardstock:  DCWV Immortal Love & coordinating cardstock.  (I finally brought myself to cut it!)

Flowers: Recollections &

Ribbon & bling - from my stash.

Thank you so much for looking!  I appreciate your comments so much!

Fashionista Friday Challenge #75

This weeks challenge over at the Shoe is to use 2 Diecuts, embossing(liquid or dry),clear bling, and any type of distressing.  It has been a long time since I have used a Tilda image and I had so much fun coloring her up for the Fashionista Friday #75 Challenge! 

The green and purple colors just scream SPRING to me & I am so ready for Sprint to get here!  The image is from Magnolia - Tilda with big ribbon.  Image was colored in with copic markers.  The flowers are from - I used some distress ink re-inkers and perfect pearls to add some shimmer and color to the small roses green and cherry blossoms purple.  I used my cuttlebug and circle & floral motifs nesties to add my die cuts and embossing.  The bling is from Recollections - I love their new collection!    Cardstock and ribbon used is  from scraps I had on hand (I love when I can use up my stash and make something beautful).

Thank you so much for looking!  I hope that you will join us this week over at the Shoe!
