First off, thanks to everyone who participated in the month-long December challenge. What a great variety of wonderful creations! Today’s challenge, the first of 2012, is sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps. Be sure to visit the Flutter By Wednesday blog to see how you can play along for a chance to win. This is a blog hop – very fun! You may have arrived here from Suzanne’s blog, but if not, you may want to visit the FBW blog and start hoppin’! Next up on the hop is Amanda. Here is the complete blog hop list, in case you get lost!
This week's challenge is open - just be sure to use a butterfly, angel or fairy. Link your creation up to the FBW blog for a chance to win seven free digis from Bugaboo!
I have two cards to share with you today. I printed the image (Ava Fairy, from Bugaboo) twice in different sizes so I could practice coloring her, but I ended up using both of them! I used Copics on them both, and Stickles, too. This first one is matted with purple and a Heart Circle Nestability and is mounted on Dimensionals. I used Deja Views patterned paper, scored with my Scor-Pal, and then sanded down. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set and I added a few black gems.
This second one is so cheery in yellow. I again used a Nestability for the image and matting. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. The daisy is from K & Co and the yellow patterned paper is from Die Cuts With a View.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
