Fairy Pink




Hello, my friends! Here it is Thursday already and time for another Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz, where the theme is always "Anything Goes" with an Optional Twist. However, there is no twist in this week's challenge. We can create anything our hearts desire.

As a member of Design Team, here's what I created as inspiration for this challenge. My image is a Bestie digital stamp and I think she is so cute. Since her dress was already colored (all the rest was a black and white line art image) and was gray with pink, I decided to use pink, gray and white as my color theme. 

My image was printed out on white card stock. I colored her hair with Copic markers. The rest of the image was colored using Spectrum Noir markers. After coloring, the image was die cut and embossed using Spellbinders Elegant Ovals  and matted with a pink panel which was cut with Marianne Creatables Anja's Large Ovals die.

At this point I prepared my base card in white and layered it with gray floral patterned paper which was cut with a die from Sue Wilson's Spanish Collection Seville set.  (the patterned paper looks almost grape in the photo, but it is actually a dark gray)

With my base card prepared, my focal image was then popped onto the base with dimensionals. As a final touch, I added touches of glitter to the fairy wings.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you join us for this fun challenge at
