Hello everyone! And Happy Tuesday! It's time for the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #23 : Anything Goes. The guidelines for this challenge: Make a project of your choice and ANYTHING GOES! Just use your PEACHY KEEN STAMPS and link up! Design must be new.
So in case I've never mentioned it, fairies are my most favorite thing. Which makes last month's PKS ~ Kit of the Month the absolute BEST thing ever!! I apologize in advance if I go a little overboard with fairy creations in the coming months. LOL Here is my challenge entry:
I decided to do something a little different than a card this time. I made this as a gift for someone special in my life (don't want to mention who just yet in case they see this post before they get their package in the mail). ;)
Ok, to start - this pretty hanging frame is something I picked up at Michales. All I did was add the bow at the top which is made with Celebrate It ~ Valentine ribbon. Now, you might think this is a little weird, but instead of putting this "in" the frame, I actually mounted it on "top" of the frame. (That's because I put her on an Action Wobble so she could be her little fairy self). :)
This is one of those projects that I just loved so much, I almost decided to keep it for myself...lol. You know me and my rainbows ~ I think I might just have to make one in every color! I'm sooooo not kidding!!!!! ;)
Ok, the black background cardstock is from Recollections. The white cardstock is X-Press It ~ Blending Card Paper (which I use specifically for coloring with Copics). The super beautiful flowers around the outside are stamped with the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Flower Power Frame. I colored them all in with Copic ~ Sketch Markers (and yes, it took forever - but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out).
If you look closely, you can see that each and every flower has a Recollections ~ Pearl in the center of it. They are all different sizes. Almost all of them are white, but there are a few red ones in there too. Doesn't this little fairy go perfect with these pretty flowers??? I just knew they were the perfect match the minute I saw them. And if you check out the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge Blog, you can see that Nikki did the exact same thing with a different color scheme and the other cutie patootie fairy!!! They are soooo perfect together!!!
For my super duper little cutie, she is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ June 2012 : Kit of the Month. I used the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ SVGs and my Silhouette ~ Cameo to cut out her body and her head. I used Copic ~ Sketch Markers for her skin, hair, wings, shoes and the tip of her hat. The rest is all paper pieced. The patterned paper for her hat and the bottom layer of her dress are from the Creative Imaginations ~ Simply Sentiments : Neutral 6x6 paper stack. The patterned paper for the background and the top and middle layers of her dress are from the Creative Imaginations ~ Dots & Stripes : Cool 6x6 paper stack. Here is a closer look:
And for the absolute best part:
I put her on an Action Wobble!!! She has to be able to move around and do her fairy business of course!!! ;)
Well that's it for today my friends. I hope she makes you smile! I think that there is just something so magical about fairies. I'm sure there will be a lot more to come, so I hope you don't get too sick of them. :)
Make sure you head on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge Blog to check out all the other entries. Have a great day everyone! I will see you back here soon.
