Stamping 411


T.G.I.F.!!! Well I am soooo glad it's the weekend, how about you? I made this card for the stamping 411 sketch challenge. I have to try to keep up with my friend France and she has been doing these stamping 411 challenges, so I thought I would give it a try. I Love this card. I got to play with a lot of new stuff thats not available until May 1st. This cute little fairy image was so much fun to color. The BG paper is the new Presto Patterns Specialty paper. I used the new smooch spritz to color it. I just sprayed several of the different colors and blended with a sponge dauber. I then added some regal rose ink in a few spots. It turned out very nice with lots of shimmer to it. I got the idea for this from a gal named Sandi. here is a link to her instructions. I sewed around my image to finish it off. The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags Stamp set in the occasion mini catalog. Here is a close up of the fairy. Thanks for stoppin by. TTFN!!:)
