Hello Friends! Thanks for coming by today. I know my posts have been sparse this week. And my blog surfing has been even less. :( I can't say that I am busy...I think I am just busy doing "not much" and trying to catch a breath from my last 2 weeks. :) I will really try to get around and visit your blogs soon.
This card is another one that was made for 2 challenge: My own 3 Clovers Thursday challenge this week and the May sketch Challenge over at Magnolia-Licious. This months sketch was provided by the lovely and talented Sharon. You can view the sketch here, as well as all the other fun cards from the DT and Magnolia lovers! And email Diana here if you want to share your version in the Magnolia-licious gallery. Don't forget you can also join the Magnoli-licious yahoo group for all the new challenges and a special discount code for the Magnolia-licious store for Yahoo group members only! Phew! Did I say Magnolia-licious enough?! LOL!
Speaking of Magnolia-licious, heeheehee, you can get Dragonfly Tilda over there! And Diana ships out your orders lickety split! Dragonfly Tilda is part of the long awaited Chasing Butterflies collection...now in stock! Yahoooooo!
I like to cut a lot of my Tilda's out. However trying to cut out antennae is too hard! So I just cut them off. But she seemed to be missing something then. She was: Antennae! :) So I needed to find away to add some on there. I don't have any craft wire...well if I do, I couldn't find it. so I had to come up with something else. I got out the stick pins, added sone pearl beads and curved it. I stuck them on in the back using good ol' glue dots. Then to make them a little more secure I made sure to put the pop dots I was using over the pin. Clear as mud? lol!
Just like the fairy from this post, I stamped the image twice, then cut out the image minus the wings and pop dotted it over another image of her wings. In my mind the wings on fairies, bugs, angels should be somewhat transparent, so I always try to color them a very pale shade. For this cutie I chose to use a very pale green (YG11) and a very pale pink (RV10) on the wings' tips. And almost always I cover the wings with Star Dust Stickles. Glitter gives them a magical feel. :)
Guess what? It is after 3 AM here...I have to up in less than 4 hours to get the kids ready for school. I better go to bed now. I hope that you join us for this week's 3 Clover Thursday Challenge!
Have a Magical Thursday!
