Faerie Song Stamp Version 1

Howdy! I received in the mail yesterday a couple of new stamps! They’re from Faerie Song, and the Smeared and Smudged Design Team have been asked to create some fab art with these images. Here is the first card I’ve made:

P1205725

When I first saw this fairy, I couldn’t picture her in pastel colors… I see quite a bit of sass in her, which begged for bright, bold colors! She and her butterfly friend are colored in with my Spectracolor pencils.. I colored her without a whole lot of shading and color gradation. She’s got a bit, but not too much. I wanted her bold and kinda gritty. I wonder what kind of sweets are in that box of hers???

P1205726

Click on any of the photos to see it bigger! I had some awesome paper from the Paper Company that has a fabulous feel to it (almost like a fabric), and the colors are wild! I didn’t do anything to the papers… they were perfect without any help from me!

I added a couple of tiny brads, and inked the edges of the card, and then it was done! How would you like a chance to win some Faerie Song Stamps??? Head on over to the Smeared and Smudged ning Group and find out how! Come play along with us!
