Yesterday a new sketch challenge went live over @the Sketchy Challenges. Our hostess this time is Colleen, who has designed this beauty with lots of layers, so right up my street!
…and this is my card:
After last week’s blue boy card, I had a need to go girlie and pink yesterday.
The image is Fairy Wishes from Saturated Canary. I wanted to use my Spellbinder’s Floral Oval, but she didn’t fit inside the frame, so instead I kept it simple and just added lots of Shabby Pink Frantage around the her. Looove that stuff! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; it’s highly addictive stuff! Here I’ve also embossed the charm and some of the flowers, I had to stop myself from going at more things…:-)
The fairy was coloured with my Copics; I messed up her hair a bit on the right hand side, but I did the hair last so I wasn’t going to start from scratch again.
For her wings I thought I’d use something different than Stardust Glitter for a change, so I applied some Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Impatient as I am, I decided to speed up the cracking by using a heat tool, which normally is ok once the paint has started to crack, but not so much when you have frantage underneath it as it still reacts to the heat; all of a sudden I had giant bubbles on her lower wings. Had to poke them and, then scrape some of the crackle paint off and reapply… LOL
As usual, some close up pics:
The sentiment was created with the “Spell It Out Alphabet Stamp Set” from Whimsy; it’s been on my wish list for quite some time now, and at the beginning of the week I finally gave in, and while I was at it I got some other new sentiments stamps from Whimsy as well. 😳 Today I’m going to the craft show at Ally Pally (Alexandra’s Palace) in London; I’m actually doing this post from some friend’s place. Credit card stays at home, LOL!
