A cup of good wishes...


I'm getting this card into the current Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday challenge just under the wire. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new fairies that were released last month and once they arrived in my mailbox I just had to get one on a card. So when I saw that the challenge was to make a CAS card this was the perfect time to ink up Tea Cup Fairy. Since I knew the overall design was going to be on the simple side I could really go to town with my coloring of the china tea cup without the card getting too busy. My goal was to mimic the look of Delft Blue china and I gotta say that I'm pretty darn happy with the results. To keep the card bright and happy I chose to accent all that blue with some sunny yellow hues and this little doll seems to be right at home in her cozy cup world.  :)

Have a great weekend everybody!
