Magical - The East Wind Challenge 13
Oh my word...it's Friday and I have more list than week left! Does that ever happen to you? LOL. It's time for our mid-month challenge at The East Wind and this time the theme is For The Kiddies. There are all sorts of images at TEW suitable for a project for a child or new baby. We'd like to see your creations for those little ones, with or without a TEW image. Mind you, if it's with you get twice the chances to win:) I chose to make a birthday card using this adorable Flower Fairy and Birdie image. I just love that they are having a gentle cuddle. I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut them leaving a narrow white border. They were then matted with black cardstock which adds strength to the skinny bits before popping them up on foam tape and also makes the image stand out against the background.
The background paper, edged with Black Soot Distress ink, comes from my scrap box. It was matted in black and wrapped with three lengths of blue seam binding. A black band was placed horizontally behind where the image was going. A black cardstock and green designer paper were cut with a Spellbinders die and layered in an offset manner. The green layer was given faux stitching as a border as well as edging with Black Soot Distress ink.
The sentiment was computer generated, printed on white cardstock, and matted in black. Three black half pearls were added for the dots. Two photo corners were punched from black and added to the lower left corner of the DP. Six silver sequin stars completed the card.
Thanks for stopping in today. The three of us appreciate that. When you get a chance, pop over to The East Wind Challenges blog to see the amazing For the Kiddies creations by the rest of my talented teamies. Sweet! We'd love to see you play along, too.
Life is good; so is art.
