Making Wishes...

Hey there!

Are you ready to start a brand new week? This one is going to be chock full of new release previews from Tickled Pink, CC Designs and Sweet November here on the ol' blog. But first I've got one free day before all the hoopla begins to check another un-inked stamp off my list. :)

This little beauty didn't actually have to wait too long since I only just got her about a week ago. This is Wishes and she is one of the newest Nouveau Girls from Some Odd Girl. And bonus... she's a fairy too! I just love her so much and couldn't wait to get her on a card. When I started searching for just the right papers to to create her home I was lucky enough to come across this Once Upon a Springtime paper pad by Graphic 45. I say lucky because I really don't have much from Graphic 45... they just aren't my usual style. But I think it was the Nouveau inspired designs that appealed to me in the first place with this one. Talk about kismet. I don't think Wishes could have found a more perfect place to perch. I also played around with a different skin tone combo on her. It turned out very light and could probably use a bit more tweaking but it does fit the muted tones of the paper pretty well.

Alrighty, time to go get ready for work. See ya tomorrow when all of the preview fun starts!

Amy, this is so pretty and I think her skin tone looks perfect for this very delicate image...so sweet! The way you colored her dress is awesome and the "folds" are something I haven't mastered yet, as well as the highlights in her hair. I'm glad you always post the Copic colors you use. Have a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Cami

Ok, ummm, I have a confession to make...shhhh! I may get in trouble for saying this. But I just love your card out of all the DT's creation! Your coloring just gives her so much depth and character! And I love what you did with the Graphic 45 papers and how the card is designed. I love SOG but I wasn't drawn into buying this stamp until now... Stunning!
