Pink Your Life Finale!

Welcome! Today is the final day for the Stampendous and Pink Your Life Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed all of the projects shared this week. Be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to get all of the info on the hops for today, as well as the awesome prizes that are up for grabs.

Today, I have a card that uses a couple of sets, but features Whisper Princess.

I decided to color the Princess with Copics. Something I don't use very often, because I only have literally 35 colors, and about half are dried out. But, I had enough colors that coordinated to get her colored in. I then fussy cut her out.

My background was done directly on the card base, which, looking back I shouldn't have done. The card base is too flimsy, and it warped. I stamped all of the images out with VersaFine from Imagine. Then I colored all of the elements in with Faber-Castell's Art Grip Aquarelle pencils. Since they're watercolor pencils, the water warped the card. I was really just playing with the card, I didn't have a definite direction or medium I was going to use. Next time I'll just work on heavy cardstock.

I added a few sequins for some sparkle. I have to say, I am having so much fun building scenery for these sweet fairies! My daughter also has a piece to share today.

She rushed a bit to get it done, but I think she did a fabulous job nonetheless. We chose the stamps and layout together, and she colored it with colored pencils. She's 8 and and I am very proud of her hard work! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more with Pink Your Life. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Boy, you sure can't see all the problems you had with the background paper on the photo. It all looks fabulous. Your daughter did a great job of coloring and staying in the lines, didn't she? Nice work.
