Now, you know how much I love Mo Mannings images, so when I saw the challenge this week on Mo's Challenge Blog for 'Things with Wings', the creative (and digestive!!) juices started flowing pretty quickly, when I decided on this image.
Of course, while I was scouting around the web, I also found a few other challenges to plunge into as well:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog : Sing It Baby - this is a pretty cool quest this week, to create a card whilst singing a song in your head! For some reason, Truly Scrumptious (hence the title of my post!) from the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (if anyone can remember that far back!!) got in there and would not leave I tell ya! I think it's the fact that both the cupcake and the fairy are pretty 'munchable'.
One Stitch At A Time : Challenge #24 - Use a little Pink (no problem there!)
Flutter By Wednesday : Challenge #116 - Use a Butterfly, Fairy or Angel and your favourite colour (I do love me the pink and green combo)
Cute Card Thursday : Challenge #124 - Whateva!
So all that said, oh yeah...........let's get to the nitty gritties of the card. I think I'll have to send this to myself cause it's just too sweet to give away! I coloured mainly with Prisma pencils and just a touch of Copics, and of course plenty of super fine glitter for the tutu/wings/cupcake. I also used some Glossy Accents on the star sprinkles and sponged a little 'chalk' ink around the image. I tried blades of grass for the first time also, and although I am no Paula Williamson....it's not a bad effort! DP's are from Pink Paislee and ribbon and sentiment button are from my stash.
Phew, that 's it. Wow, my longest post ever. Just one more thing.......an ammendment to my last post.......
I think this is my latest favourite card.......til the next one!
