Happy Sunday… actually not so happy, but rather a bit anxious about the impending hurricane coming our way. I live on the south shore of Long Island and we are told “Sandy” will be a huge storm! We are as prepared as we can be and the rest is left to hopes and prayers that it will all end with everyone in its path safe and sound! One of the nicest ways to divert my attention from anxious thoughts was to create this card and so I spent the greater part of the evening in my craft room creating this project. For this card, I used a Mo Manning digital image, “Winter Fairy Talva”… isn’t she the cutest?
“Winter Fairy Talva” is colored with copic markers. I used a bunch of BG’s and also added some of the blue/blue green fluorscent markers. I am sorry I did not note the colors- some times when I color I am a madman with so many markers and mixing colors…Her dress was dusted with with Deco Art Glamour Dust and embellished with Viva Decor Pearl Pen (white). I just left those little pearls on her dress alone until they dried and each one is perfect this time! Talva’s pompoms and snowball are also covered with Diamond Stickles. The design paper is an older Bo Bunny paper called Snowy Serenade and it is hard to find. I also used Melissa Frances C’est la Vie. The metal corner embellishment, pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections. Swarovski crystals and silver crystal rose ribbon from my stash. Magnolia doohickey is behind the sentiment from an old acrylic stamp set in my stash.
In my last post, I told you about the stash of glittery tulle I purchased from Joanns…well I found another use for it… it matched my card colors so well that I thought I would drape it in my light tent behind my card. I scattered some large flat back pearls and voila!
A close up view…
Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving such kind comments. They say we may not have power for 7-10 days after the storm hits on Monday but I am hoping that won’t be the case! I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
