Love you to pieces

Hi friends!

Is there such a thing as loving someone too much?…nope…never!

This little sweetie is sharing all of her love in the form of a puzzle. This adorable image from The Paper Nest Dolls is called ‘Ava with Heart Puzzle‘. She was originally drawn for Autism Awareness, but she can also be used for lots of other occasions.

I printed this little cutie at a height of 3.4″ on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: E55, E53, E51, YR21
Pinks: BV23, RV23, RV21, RV11, R00, R000

Yellows: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00
Purples: BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00, BV000
White Gel Pen

The shaker part is made with tulle netting as I find it easier to photograph, and it also gives the card a little bit softer feel. I have to say I had fun going through my stash of shaker bits choosing colors that are in the background paper. It’s good to go through those sometimes just to remember what you have…lol!!

Little house of Fairies

Hi friends!

If you follow my blog…you know I love all things girly and pink!

I have been wanting to create a little flip album for quite some time, and these adorable little fairies from Paper Nest Dolls were so perfect for this project.

My inspiration came from a project I saw online when ordering my paper.

Once I decided which elements I wanted to use from the Fairy Set, I printed them on X-Press It Blending Card and started coloring.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair Combinations: 100, E70, E59, E57, E55 / E29, E27, E25, E23, E99 / E55, E53, E51, E50
Teals: BG15, BG13, BG11, BG00
Yellows: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00
Reds: R08, R05, R14
Oranges: YR18, YR16, YR15, Y18
Wings: BG0000, BG000, RV0000

Pinks: RV55, RV02, RV00, RV0000
Grays: W7, W5, W3, W2, W1, W0
Greens: YG17, YG03, YG01, YG00

The mushroom shape was cut out with my Cameo Silhouette. I started with 5 white pages and added the layers to each side of the page. Embellishments were added with various dies I have. Lots of dies that haven’t seen love in a long time…lol!

I layered some of the flowers, adding enamel dots in various sizes to the centers of the flowers.

Every smart fairy knows they need a back door…cuz you never know when you need to sneak away…lol!!
