Catch a Star

Today's project features a beautiful image by Tiddly Inks "Fairy Fae Catches a Star."  I wanted my card to have somewhat of an ethereal look so I chose patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather 6x6 pad. I printed the digital image onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.  I then cut it out with a Spellbinder's Nestabilities, sponging the edges with ink while it was still in the die. I haven't notice anyone else coloring in a scarf on the fairy's hair but that's the way it looked to me. I added a few jewels to the stars in her hair as well the ones she is trying to capture. I found some fun old products in my stash too, the Scrapworks round clip and the Lil Davis glittery chipboard stars. It amazes me what I actually own sometimes! I followed the basic sketch for this week's Tiddly Inks Challenge. This also fits this week's Crazy 4 Challenges to use bling.

Products: Tiddle Inks digital stamp, Cosmo Cricket dp, My Favorite Things Die-namics, MME buttons, PaperTrey Ink sentiment stamp and buttons, Kaisercraft pearls, Basic Grey jewels, Spellbinders Nestabilties, Copic Markers

Copics: Skin-E0000, E00; Hair-E50, E51, E53, E55; Dress/Scarf-BV0000,BV00, BV01, Wings/Stars/Dress Ruffles-W00, W1, W2,W5

I hope your week starts off great.  I wish I could complain about it being Monday but I still don't have a job.....sigh.
