For My Friend

Happy 2009!!!! I hope all of you had a great time ringing in the new year last night!
For today's card I used one of the sweet Faerie stamps from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design, the Faerie stamps that Susana carries in her store are so precious and stamp out beautifully. I started out by stamping the image and coloring her with my Copics then cut and embossed the image with my Nesties and used Fantasy designer paper for the back drop and color reference. As a final touch to this card I added some Scattered Straw Designer Stickles to the center of the flowers in her hair and Gold Liquid Pearls to the little buttons on her dress as well as some Spica glitter pen to her wings, dress and around her eyes.

Supplies: Bryony Faerie stamp, Elegant Cheer - SU, Fantasy designer paper, Copics, Ribbon, Prima flower, Gem, Designer Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Spica glitter pen, Pop dots. Colors: Old Olive, Cameo Coral, Rose Red, Whisper White.
