...Fairy Tale Agnes

I am in love with Stamping Bella's new KETTO stamp line! These whimsical beauties are just too precious for words! I would like to introduce you to Agnes...isn't she fabulous?!? I started with a Tangerine Tango Cardstock base, then matted the additional layers in a combination of Whisper White Cardstock and/or Chocolate Chip Cardstock. The blue patterned paper was from the Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper pack (Sale-a-Bration), and the orange patterned paper was from the retired Haiku Designer Series Paper pack. The edges of the blue panel were pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.

Agnes was stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. She was colored with a Blender Pen and the following Classic Ink Pads: Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, and So Saffron. I added some sparkle to her wings with some Crystal Stickles, then colored over her dress with a Gold Sakura Glaze Pen. The sentiment was from Verve Visual's "Fairy Tales" set. It was stamped on Bashful Blue Cardstock in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, embossed, and punched out using the Large Oval Punch. A Chocolate Chip Cardstock mat was punched with the Scallop Oval Punch (available in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog), then added to the sentiment panel. Silver Brads were added to the orange panel and sentiment panel to finish off the card.

That's it for now! I plan on working with some of the other KETTO stamps today, so I may have something else to add to the blog later. Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all later! Until then...
