Flutters

Greetings! It’s gonna be a very Sweet Pea Stamps week in my Pillow Book world! Not only will I be sharing several new Sweet Pea creations with you, but this is also Customer Submission week over at their blog, and I will be one of the customers that is featured this week! Not sure what day that will be yet, but I will be sure to let you know! On to today’s project!

I am sharing with you a new image by Terra Bidlespacher. It’s called Flutters, and I adore it. This little fairy is so sweet looking. Take a peek for yourself!

I had the image all colored up (using my watercolor markers and pencils) and then I saw the latest challenges from Sweet Pea Stampers (Scallops) and In a Sweet Pea Dream (Pink). I was immediately inspired!

I made her winds sparkly with Cotton Candy Stickles, and I thought that she needed a bit of a background, so I added a plethora of dots. I think it filled in the space nicely.

I layered a scallop-y kind of flower for a little dimension. I’m not usually one for buttons…but they have been making me smile lately. You might be seeing a lot more of them!

So what do you think? This card is just what I needed. March is by far my least favorite month all year, but this happy little card gave me a wonderful, cheery pick-me-up! I hope you will visit me again for more Sweet Pea goodness!  Tomorrow there will be a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and I’ll give you 3 guesses as to which stamp company I’ll be working with! Have an inspiring day!

Challenges:

Sweet Pea Stampers: Scallops

In a Sweet Pea Dream: Pink

Flutterby Wednesday: Photo Inspiration- I was inspired by the daisy’s centers…hence my little background dots
