Tinkerbella


I decided I needed another entry on the blog... I've not had a whole lot of creative mojo going for me this whole weekend and that's not good since I've got 5 swaps due this month! I'm hosting a recipe swap with the ladies I work with, so I need to work on my two spots for that - fortunately one of them is designed but I haven't thought of the other one. Then I have a Christmas cookie swap due and I bought this way gorgeous paper by Basic Grey and now I can't remember what I was going to do with it. I still need to make my notebooks for the swap I'm hosting. I've got it thought out, just nothing made!
Anyway, earlier this year I hosted a Bella swap and I had approximately 50 participants. I made each participant a card (you saw one on an earlier posting - Bellarina with the pink glittery tutu) and those that took multiple spots I, of course had to do different designs. This is one of the cards that I did. I love how it turned out! Brocade Blue is one of my favorite blues and the black card stock really allowed the detail of the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls show up. I used my Brocade Blue marker to color her dress and then I used a silver gel pen to highlight the flowers. I colored her wings with Bashful Blue and then I used holographic highlights embossing powder to make the wings sparkly. I used my Coluzzle envelope template to create the scallop edge and then finished it off with a bit of bling. I hope you like it.

6 Encouraging Thoughts:

Hi Melissa - I met you this weekend when you came a visiting...

I'm enjoying looking at your work as well! So very cute! You and your sister do such great work! It's nice to see such talented scrappers and stampers out there!!

Give my best wishes to your older sister. There are a lot of people out there supporting her that don't even know her, that's the power of PINK.

Have a good week - Sue

I love those Stamping Bella stamps! Karin was showing me her collection of them :)

Hey, does Karin have a blog too?

Melissa Craig said...

Sues - you are so right. We look a lot alike!!

Toni - That's OK. I wasn't on your blog for blog candy. I was there cuz I wanted to be. No Karin doesn't have a blog cuz she says she's not whitty enough. She has an amazing gallery on SCS though.
