Pixie by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hey there, friends!  Summer began in my neck of the woods yesterday.  I have to say that summer is my least favourite season.  Too hot and humid, and way too many bugs.  However, I do love that the days are longer.

Challenge #517 starts today on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is THINGS WITH WINGS.  What a versatile theme, right?  I chose the darling Pixie image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  She is so very sweet!

This card is smaller than the standard slimline cards.  It measures 3.5" x 6.25.  I followed an awesome video tutorial by Karen Aicken.  Her video shows you how to use 6" x 6" papers to create mini slimline cards.  

Here is a side view:  

This cutie is coloured with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.  I applied Liquid Pearls (Petal Pink) to the butterflies' bodies, and Wink of Stella to the fairy's wings.

If you would like to see more inspiration by the other Design Team members, see here.  And, if you join in the fun, you may win some beautiful images.

Thank you for visiting.  It always brightens my day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Resources and Tools Used 

Frame:         Sizzix Framelets "Dotted Squares" dies
Butterflies:   Martha Stewart "Classic Butterfly" and "Royal" punches
Sentiment:   Computer generated and backed with "QuicKutz "Bottle Cap" die

  14. I feel exactly the same way about Summer. I love the extra hours, but I'm definitely allergic to the heat and humidity. Right now, it's blissfully cold for me.
    Your card is exquisite, Lori! I never would have known it was mini, and what that tells me, is that you've done some expert colouring on this, which can be really tough on such a small image. Stunning card, as usual!

  15. Very pretty card, lovely colouring and lovely image
