Sentimental Sundays 8/12/2012

This week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is "Clean and Simple" with the added bonus of using a sketch designed by the very talented Nicole.

Unfortunately I didn't use the sketch but you can believe I've saved it because it will really come in handy at a later date.

I've never attempted a Clean and Simple card and it was harder than I expected but I think I rose to the occasion

The image "Tinkerbell Honey" is from Sassy Studio Designs. I printed two images. I colored one with Copics and added Martha Stewart glitter on her "wings." I also added bling on her shoes and silver beads in her hair. The uncolored image was printed in the position it would be on the card. I used a QuickCutz embosing folder to emboss a frame around the image. MS glitter was added to the wings of the uncut image. Using foam dots I positioned the colored image over the uncolored image while curling part of the wing up from the paper to create the illusion of a flapping wing.. Finally I stamped the sentiment, from Close to My Heart with "Tulip" CTMH ink.

Be sure to stop by Sentimental Sundays to see what wonderful creations the rest of the design teams have come up with.
