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!
