...A Couple of Fairies

Don't forget to enter to win some blog candy HERE!
This was my submission for Taylor VanBruggen's Cupcake Challenge #61. This pretty little fairy is named "Phoebe" from Stamping Bella's new KETTO stamp line. She was stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers. Her wings were colored with a Gold Sakura Glaze Pen, then her hair and wings were highlighted using a White Signo Gel Pen. The patterned papers were from the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper pack, and the cardstock colors include Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, Whisper White. The button was from the Button Bouquet collection, and I added some Linen Thread to the button also. Edited to Add: the sentiment was from Stamps and Smile's "Cuppy Love" set.

This was my submission for Amy Rysavy's Friday Sketch Challenge #55. This beautiful fairy is called "Suzette", and she is also from the KETTO collection. She was stamped and colored in the same manner as the other card image. The pattern papers were from the Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper pack, and the cardstock colors include Basic Black, Real Red, Cameo Coral (textured), and Whisper White. I added some Silver Brads and a piece of 5/8"Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon. Edited to Add: the butterfly was also from Stamping Bella, and it is called "Papillion".
That's it for today! I have gotten a tremendous response to my watermark poll, but there are still several days to vote, so be sure to put in your choice for a chance to win some cool blog candy! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all tomorrow.

Oh wow, these both are amazing. I love the way the Phoebe card turned out. The colors are gorgeous and I love the button element you added. Her hair is so pretty with the highlights. Suzette is gorgeous too. Love the bold colors on the card. She looks like a beauty queen she is colored so well. Love the way you put the Papillion beside her. Adds a nice touch. Great job on both sketches girlfriend. Is it time to stamp again? What about Tuesday? Love ya!!
