Outlawz Guest DT Gig!

Woo-hoo! I was surprised and delighted to be asked to be a guest designer for the Friday Copic/Promarker Group at The Outlawz for the month of February.

Our first challenge was a color challenge! We were to use purple, green, and gold for Mardi Gras.

Here's my card!




I used ching-chou kuik's Masked Fairy in Green by Sweet Pea Stamps. She was colored with Copic markers. Gold and purple glitter pens were used to highlight her mask and her wings and a Sakura Glaze pen was used to add dimension and shine to her jewels and the wand's handle.

I die cut a Fleur De Lys Rectangle from Basic Grey paper. While it was still in the die, a Harlequin stencil from The Crafter's Workshop was put over the die. The seasonal purple Distress Ink was sponged over both the die and the stencil, then spritzed with Gold Perfect Mist.

The patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Kioshi 6x6 pad and 12x12 Origins paper (green).

The sentiment is from Fairy Fantasy Unmounted Sheet by The Enchanted Gallery and was stamped onto one of my beloved Spellbinders labels.

Little golden pearls by Recollections were used to add some regal touches to the upper left corner, the corners of the frame, and the sentiment. I wish they still made those since they are way nifty. :(

Thanks for visiting today!

Beautiful!! Love the way you colored her and the creative way you used the Harlequin embossing folder on the die cut frame.
