Fairy Wishes for a Friend
I've been playing with my Sweet Pea stamps again. Coloured several so I hope to have more cards soon. I should be playing with my new images but I just keep reaching for "Red Hearts." The funny part is, I love to colour her in blues, greens and purples. I haven't coloured her in red yet. Maybe that should be my next attempt. She's coloured with prismas. I love the softer effect of prismas on these cards. I also find the prismas easier to blend for greater depth than Copics but that just may be my bias.
The flowers were made with my Tim Holtz die and the fabric from one of DH's old shirts. He's lost a lot of weight this year and all his beautiful dress shirts don't fit anymore. I couldn't bear to throw them away so while looking the other way, I took my fabric scissors to them. Probably not the safest way to do it, but hey, I love the colours.
