Make a Wish for Try It Out *T*

Oh my... I haven't posted for a week!  I bet you thought I went a.w.a.l.  I've been busy working on some orders mostly... Today I'm heading down to the Verizon Store.  My phone died - and I JUST got it a few weeks ago!!!  Isn't that irritating?  I understand when things get old and broken, but this is almost brand new... what's up with that?  Needless to say, I will NOT be getting the same phone grrrrrrr!

For this week's Try It Out *T*, Suzanne has given us the challenge of creating a shaped card - anything other than a square or rectangle.  I defaulted to round lol!  I was thinking about making a baby bottle or apron shaped card, but decided to make this cute scallop shape instead.  It fits nicely in an A2 size envelope (thanks Suzanne for clarifying the A2 size hee hee).  I used the largest scallop nestie to create my card base.

I've used one of the ADORABLE fairies Susana carries in her store.  It is a clear Pergamano stamp which comes in a set of 3 fairies in addition to lots of little critter friends!  You can find it Here.  She's the perfect size and shape for this card!  Yipppppeeee :)

No surprises... yes, she's colored with copics lol!  Greens:  YG45 YG41 YG0000; Oranges: YR02 YR01 YR00 YR000; Browns:  E57 E53 E51 E50; Yellows: Y15 Y13; Hair:  E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin: E11 E21 E00.

After coloring, I gave her wings some bling with Viva Decor Glitter Liner as well as a few accent areas and around the scallop.  For a little extra pizazzzzzz, I added a portion of a rhinestone swirl.

These gorgeous papers are KAISERCRAFT Secret Bird Society Collection.  They come with die cuts too!  The original tag was larger...I just cut it down to size.  Don't you just love cute little things? If it's small, I always think it's cute lol!  Sentiment is from Stampin Up!, button and thread from my stash...
