Snow special...


I've had my eye on the new winter fairies from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps for a few months but it wasn't until I noticed that CC Designs had them in stock that I bit the bullet and added them to my stamp collection. Considering the snowfall we got this past weekend I thought it was appropriate that Snowball Fairy would be the first of the four to make it on to a card. I paired her up with this photo realistic paper that was actually my least favorite of the pad when I first flipped through it. Funny how that goes... so often they papers I'm kinda 'meh' on are the first to get used and in a way that makes me love them. I really think that snowy forest was meant to be Snowball's home. ;)

Because the print is pretty monochromatic I was able to choose whichever Copic colors that I wanted. Since I rarely use the BV family I figured this was a great chance to give them a workout. The end result is a lovely periwinkle hued Snowball fairy. The way that Snowball's left hand is positioned I thought it would be cool to make it look like she is sprinkling snowflakes around the sentiment. So I grabbed a white Wink of Stella pen and some tiny snowflake punches to pull the whole look together. 

It is a simple and fairly flat card (great for mailing, LOL) but I gotta say that I feel like this one was the start of getting my groove back. This makes me a very happy camper. :)

Ok folks, I'm off to work. Have a great day!
