Have a fairy sweet day!

Hi!  After I cleaned my desk I found this sweet Tiddly Inks Wryn -- Fairy Friends all printed out and waiting for me to color her up for Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge #3 -- fave fairy/pixie and Tiddly Inks Challenge #87 -- flowers.  Wryn is such a cutie and I love her as a fairy, definitely one of my favorites!

This card came out so much larger than I intended!  Just about 6.25 inches.  The front is about an inch or so larger than the folded card itself.  But I really didn't want to shrink it.  I used my Perfect Layers rulers for all the mats.  Definitely helps when I'm feeling lazy to get up and use my paper cutter.  I don't have a scallop square that large either so I just cut 2 and layered it and covered the corners with flowers and the sentiment.  I rounded the corners too as advised by my daughter!  I think I agree that it looks better like that! 

Added some stickles to her wings, flowers and the butterflies.  Colored in some clear rhinestones with my orange Copic.  I added some blue chalk in the background but that's hard to see.  I also extended the grass too with my black Copic multiliner.  

My hubby is too logical sometimes asking me why she is smaller than the mushroom but larger than the butterflies and snail.  I don't know.  Does everything have to make sense?  He is also the one to point out that my highlights are in the wrong place.  But really, I just want to color and make stuff that's cute without having to think if there is a right or wrong way.  I think Kim Hughes from Paper Smooches had mentioned something about not having a wrong way to create cards.  And that's what I try to remind myself, to have more fun and less stress designing a card.  Cause really, who needs more stress??

Thanks so much reading!

O my! This is wonderful Eva! Super cute and totally sweet! You don't have to worry about anything, this is fabulous, from the coloring to the layout to the size of everything. You should challenge him to create a card and see what he comes up with. hahaha!
Take care and Have a great Monday!

Oh my Eva, I had a good chuckle after reading what you wrote about your hubby.. Because mines is the same way as your hubby.... Usually after when I'm done with any card he likes to see it and gives me an opinion on it. Or he'll comment on it like why does this image has such big eyes, or why does her legs looks too skinny for her body or why does he/she has to have a head that is bigger than their bodies and so on and so on....
But hey I'll just give him a smile and space out his comments. LOL!
Your card is awesome regardless what our men say!.
Enjoy your Monday...(hehe)

Cute card! Great idea with the scalloped squares! Love that your cardmaking involves the whole family! The coloring is so pretty! I actually don't see whatever your husband is noticing about the highlights... which is probably why I can never figure out where the highlights go in the first place!

Rachel Parys said...

Amen to that! Sometimes I definitely over-think it! She is adorable and perfectly colored! I haven't bought her ...yet... ;)

Danni said...

Obviously he doesn't believe in fairies! Maybe in her neck of fairyland that's the way things are!
hehe!
Love your card, so pretty!

Tell your hubs that the snail and butterflies are far away, & that's why they look small! And, yes, there is no wrong way to make a card! Lovely and cute!
