On a much brighter note, I'm so happy for my son who is enjoying working at his new job. I do believe it's a good fit for him. I can see him 'blossoming' which is a very good thing. Depression runs in both mine and my hubby's families. My son has struggled also, so to see him thriving does my heart good : )
As in most of my cards, I began by stamping Dawn's Fairy by Susana Loves Stamps with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloring with Copics (you can find Shin Han Markers HERE). Dawn's Fairy comes from the Mythical Reflections Collection HERE. I gave her eyes some shine with Transparent Gloss Gel and a bit of sparkle with Stardust Stickles. Here's where the difference comes in...
Because I wanted to try out Art Anthology Gelate in Splashed on her wings, and because I didn't want to cover such a large area with Stickles, I opted for the Gelate. I also outlined the wings with Stardust Stickles. In my opinion... the best of both worlds : )
The image is popped up using foam dimensionals over Nitwit digi papers. I left the Garden Corner dies by SCACD white which kind of gives an embossed look with the light background. They are accented with rhinestones. The heart is a print and cut using my Cameo and Silhouette software. Obviously, it would have been easier to get out my heart punch, but I already had these (unused from another project) so I popped on a Papertrey sentiment and tied a bow with twine - done!
Have a wonderful, crafty day!
May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
