Star Fairy


Today is the start of  Penny Black And More  and this month the Challenge is 'Make It Sparkle' and as usual we have some fantastic sponsors :



And one lucky person using a Penny Black Image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month, so pop over to Penny Black And More  and check out the other amazing inspiration the rest of the very talented team have come up with and join in the fun - but please do remember you can use any image you like, except Digi's.

I think i took the Challenge 'Make It Sparkle', quite literally and the image i've used is 'Star Fairy / 1190K - 1998', i coloured her in with my normal Twinkling H20's, but lately i have not been happy with the way they colour, in skin - so the lovely Kay Carley told me which Copic colours she uses for skin and i have used them and i'm a lot happier with the result - what do you think ?, i've also covered the Wings with 'Glamour Dust' and all the stars have been highlighted with 'Stickles'. The Sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Happy Birthday / 2912D' and i decided to use : Spellbinders - 'Floral Ovals' and i noticed on quite a few blogs : Spellbinders - 'Labels 18' (so i thought i would treat myself to some, only problem is i was nearly late with the Challenge !!), the papers are : My Minds Eye 'Penny Lane - Glittered Cardstock', the stars are : Memory Box - 'Precious Stars', the ribbon and pearl is from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 306 is 'Use Something New' - mine is 'Spellbinders - Label 18'

Deep Ocean  - where Challenge No: 70 is 'Fantasy'

Card Mania - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Angels or Fairies'

Stamping Sensations  - where February's Challenge is 'Wings, Fantasy or Fiction'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

A lovely magical card Sam. I love the silvery Grey and Mauve colour combination which seems to be the "in" thing at the moment and all your lovely embellishments which work beautifully together.

You have selected wonderful colours for your fairy Sam, she looks poised to fly right out of your card. I don't have this PB stamp and loving fairies as I do have no idea how I missed her.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
