Flower Fairy Friday

Yippee!  I love Fridays!  I don’t have to cook…and I don’t have to work.  I can start my weekend early :)

Another set of beautiful new fairies are headed your way from A Day For Daisies.

Today I have Fairy Flower Outing.  A little lovely gathering flowers.

So first I colored my image with Copic markers. Then I painted over her dress with Twinkling H2O’s in lime green.  I also cut out a vellum wing, popped it up, and painted over that with sparkly, glittery, iridescent paint.   I shaded around the lovely with Prismacolor pencils and oms.   After I cut out the image with a deckled edged rectangle from Spellbinders, I sponged inside the die with Rose Petal from a Memento Dew Drop.    The patterned paper is from the Victoria Gardens pad by Echo Park.  Looks like spring!  I guess we have to get through winter first…

Okay, off you go to see all of the magical samples the design team has to share with you today!

Fairy Hope

 

It’s Friday again and time for another lovely fairy to share with you from A Day For Daisies!   This is also a challenge week-use ombre.  It’s all the rage in clothing, hair, and accessories. 

This is Fairy Hope. She really does remind me of a mermaid so naturally I colored her in turquoise.  Of course it’s one of my favorite colors too.

I colored her with Copic markers and then painted her body and wings with Plaid glitter paint.  I also used some Liquid Pearls in her hair.  I created the ombre paper with a Distress Ink pad in Evergreen Bough…the paper was light turquoise so I just swiped the ink on from one side and then blended it out with a sponge.  She was cut with a Spellbinders circle die and layered onto a kraft doily.  I finished her off with a rectangle button and a few enamel dots from Teresa Collins.

The first image is La Vie en Rose.  Without further ado…

I colored this gorgeous image with Copic markers and shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  I sponged the edges of the distressed panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink from Ranger.  Very hard to see in this picture, but I added Glossy accents to the tape and a few drop on the rose petals.  Very simple, yet elegant! 

Wait until you see what the rest of the Instant Gardeners have in store for you…complete gorgeousness!  Stop by and say “hi!”

Wishful Fairy

Happy Friday everyone!  I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I last posted-it took a while to get back to an almost normal schedule.  I still have to take down my Christmas tree and all of the decorations…I’m a little behind.  It’s such a chore!

Today Tammy Thompson has a new line of beautiful fairies for A Day For Daisies!  Each one is prettier than the next, I promise!

Here I have Fairy Wishbug 2

DPK_ADFD_FairyWishbug2

After printing the image I colored it and cut it out.  When I layered it onto the solid shimmer card stock I added back in her wand, antenna’s, and other curli q’s that got cut off.  I also curled her wings so they popped up off of the paper.  I used a Deckled Edge Rectangle from Spellbinders for the mat.  I used some sparkly Stickles to add magic sparkle dust around the image too!

Oh Deer, it's almost Christmas!

It’s another edition of Friday with A Day for Daisies!  The latest release is just filled with beautiful images.  This week is also a challenge-to use traditional Christmas colors.  How easy is that?!
I just love these little deer so much that I decided to use the same one as last week. 



I printed the image with the sentiment that I added, typed myself, and colored it with Copic markers.   I sponged the edges of the panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink and matted and layered it onto patterned paper from the Recollections Christmas paper pad.
 
Next I used punches for the snowflakes, branches (martha stewart) and flowers (ek success).  I added a glittered enamel dot (teresa collins) to the center of each snowflake and a drop of Glossy Accents to each flower.

Visit each of the ladies below to see more sweetness from this release!

Flower Deer

Hi everyone and happy Friday!  Boy, it’s been a busy week!  You’d think it would have slowed down after Thanksgiving, but it seems to just have kicked into high gear!
This weeks new release from A Day For Daisies is so sweet!  Lots of super sweet flowery deer to brighten your day!
This is Flower Deer.  Cute!!!
DPK_ADFD_Flowerdeer

I colored the image with Copic Markers first.  Then I went over his spots, and nose and eye highlights with a white Gelly pen.   I used a Sakura StarDust pen to add sparkle to the flower centers and ultrafine glitter to add snow to the hills, around the sentiment, and sprinkled all over the background.  The sentiment is not included…it’s from a stamp set I had on hand.   The paper is from a new Die Cuts with a View pad called Winter in the Woods.  I love the soft cool colors of teal, craft, grey, and white.
The design team ladies have beautiful samples to share…please go and visit each one!

Joy to the World

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  I am hosting 11 this year and working on my menu and shopping list.  I feel pretty organized so far…keeping my fingers crossed doesn’t hurt though!   
Today I am sharing an image from Joyful Arrangements from Power Poppy.  Another beautiful Christmas stamp set from Marcella Hawley.
DPK_PP_JoyfulWorld_wm
After stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink I colored it with Copic markers.  I cut out the image with Spellbinders dies, Labels One.  With the die still in place I sponged the image with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.   I added sparkle to the topiary and bells with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.   I then cut a Spellbinders Shapeability Ribbon Banner in half and attached to each side of the main image panel.  The original banner was not long enough and I wanted more of the banner to show from under the panel.   Then I added some branches I created with a Martha Stewart punch and added Diamond Dust Stickles.    All of this is mounted on patterned paper from Authentique: Wonder.
Well, this is my last post with Power Poppy.  I have made the difficult decision to step down from this amazing design team.  It has been an honor to work for this wonderful new company and the amazing and talented Marcella Hawley!   I know I won’t stray far from these beautiful images though!
Now, check out all of the gorgeous creations from the Bloom Brigade today!
