Have a fairy Merry Christmas!
It's time again for the High Hopes challenge. I haven't had the chance to play in the last couple challenges so it felt good to finally get my card ready for this week's challenge which is to Make it Sparkle and Shine. I used Cindy's sketch again for my card and used lots of sewing which fits Bev's challenge. I also did a bit of recycling. I had originally created the striped panel across the bottom for my Bearly Swooshin' sneak peek card. Then, I changed my color scheme on that card and didn't end up using it. So, I decided to use it for this card since I love the holiday colors in Be Merry line from My Mind's Eye.
I colored my Holly the Winter Fairy image with copic markers in colors that coordinate with my patterned papers. Then, I cut her out. I added some glitter to the tops of her boots and her wings and some clear dimensional glaze to the berries and bells. While the image was drying, I cut my white circle using a nestability die. While the circle was still in the die, I sprayed it with a pink copic marker using my air compressor. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of my card and assembled the layers on my card. Then, I added my image using foam adhesive. Then, I added my buttons and poinsettia.
Have a Happy Sunday!
