...Freaky Flutter By Wednesday

This is my submission for today's Flutter By Wednesday challenge...create a card inspired by the Tinkerbell picture above. I love the purples, blues, and greens in the picture...I still can't get over how gorgeous this illustration is! LOL! I used the new Freaky Flutter Creepy Cake digital image from The Greeting Farm. She was printed in black onto a piece of PTI White Cardstock, then pulled my color combo using the patterned papers from the Penny Lane collection by My Mind's Eye. I matted the panels with Taken With Teal Cardstock, then did a little sewing and piercing before coloring the image with some Copic Sketch Markers. The completed panels were attached to the Orchid Opulence Cardstock base using Dimensionals, then I added the simple embellishments; a Prima Flower, a Teal Button, and Linen Thread. You could also count the shape of the focal panel as an embellishment...I cut it out with one of Spellbinders' Curved Rectangle Nesties. So what do you think? I had such a fun time coloring and shading her. I swear...the more I color and play with the Copics the more I like them! LOL!

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you all back here tomorrow with a Verve creation. Until then...
