Guest Designer at TTCRD

Happy Tuesday to everyone. I was selected to be the guest designer at 

They are a Tuesday weekly challenge of Anything Goes with a 2 entry limit. I love to see what crafters post on their blog. 

For my project I made a standard 4x5.5 off white card. The fairy image is by 

and I love that she could be used for any season. I love her in fall colors but in the spring she might make an appearance in pastels. For this card I printed her out on Strathmore watercolor paper and then colored/painted her in with Ranger distress inks and markers with a water pen. I love coloring images this way for something different then the Copic markers that I'm not really that good at:) After she was colored in and dry I fussy cut her out and adhered her to a Spellbinders die that had been inked with distress ink and using an ink blender.

The background paper is by Pink Paislee and the dry embossed piece of brown cardstock is by Bazzill. The embossing folder is by Darice. It's really too bad that all my card elements are over the embossing because it really is quite beautiful with a fall flourish and leaves. 

The flowers and leaf are by Prima and the centers of the flowers are from my LSS. The flourishes are cut out using my Cricut and the Cricut Craft Room. These flourishes are for an upcoming card class I will be teaching and my Cricut doesn't cut the greatest on these tiny intricate shapes. The flourishes I used on this card were the poorly cut ones of the bunch that I cut and carved to embellish my card. I love to recycle:)

The sentiment is a stamp by K and i Memories/Hampton Art with ink by Stampin Up.

Thanks so much for dropping by and checking out my card. Be sure to join in at Through the Craft Room Door for Anything Goes sponsored by Fitztown.
