If you can dream it...

Happy Monday evening!

I stopped by Gina K's store Friday to spend my Christmas money on the newly release stamps, paper, ribbons and buttons. When my daughter saw the new Wishes and Dreams stamp set she fell in love and has been stamping and coloring all the adorable fairies in this set.
Mom even got a chance to use one of the stamps. lol!
I used my brayer to create the background. The sky is brayered with Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal and More Mustard. The ground is brayered with Mementos New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves and Cottage Ivy. Cottage Ivy is also sponges around the bottom edges. The cluster of flowers is from one of the stamp sets in the new Stamp TV kit called Picture It. They were colored with mementos markers before stamping on the paper them I colored some of the flowers with Spica Glitter Pens.
The Fairy was stamped with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink on White PL paper and colored with copics. The copic colors I used are - Hair: yr23, e33, e99 Skin: e50, e51, rv10 Wings: r0000, r000, r00 Mushroom: e42, e43, e44, r20, r22 Clothing: r02, r05, r14. I added glitter to the wings and dots on the mushroom and used the clear glitter pen and niji waterbrush to add shimmer to her hair and clothes.
The papers are all Gina K's Pure Luxury papers - Passionate Pink, Creme de Menthe and White PL.
I usually finish the insides of my cards but hardly ever remember to take a picture...I am going to work on that this year!

I want to apologize for the sporadic or lack of postings this past month. I have pinched nerves in my neck which is affecting the use of my right arm and wouldn't you know I am right handed. It is getting better but I am still having some problems trying to do certain things...two that bother me the most is working on the computer and pushing a shopping cart...I can't surf or shop...two of my favorite things! Hee hee!

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a wonderful rest of your evening!
