...Flutter By Ginger

Don't forget to check out the post HERE for a chance to win some BLOG CANDY!

This is my submission for the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #98. I used another of Amy Young's images from C.C. Designs' Sweet November line called "Ginger". This is actually the digital image, so I'm not sure if the stamp is large or not...but I like them a bit larger in order to see the details of their faces. I drew a branch for her to sit on with a Black Copic Multiliner, then colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers. And what is a fairy without glitter on her wings? Ginger has a few streaks of Crystal Stickles on her gossamer wings to add a little sparkle. I wanted to keep the card as simple as possible, so I only added two pieces of patterned paper that coordinated with the precious image. The sentiment was from C.C. Designs' Spring Sugarplum Stamp Kit (and if you don't have this...you REALLY need to get it), and was simply stamped in black. A little stitching and four Silver Pearls completed the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow with another project! Until then...
