I am a little bit late with the posting this Tuesday, because I was waiting for this lovely DP to arrive so that I could use it for this weeks challenge . I was lucky - it arrived in my mailbox yesterday together with some other yummy things that I had ordered from Susana.
This weeks challenge is to use any stamp from Susana's store, any Dovecraft/Laura Ashley Paper on our card with only two other embellishments. Extra credits if we would use Shimmerz (luckily I had ordered some - need to try new things - right?? ;-)The DP should be at the center stage and only 2 embellishments! Can you imagine how hard this was ;-)) Normally you put the image in the center..... Well it really helped using this lovely DP from Dovecraft - called Fantasy together with the "Riding the Breeze" stamp.
I wanted it to look like that she was in the land of dreams - since the DP fairy was white and all the swirls on the DP. I also decided to have a go with new copics. So hard it is to change to another way of colouring, but I need to have a go with the copics as well (realized that I need more colours of course and much more practise.... any great tips ladies are greatly appreciated - such as what paper you use and tutorials etc (I normally use my aquarelle paper when I colour with SU markers, but that does not work with the copics so...) As for the embellishments - I picked flowers and Bella Baubles "String of Pearls".
I added some Shimmerz to the wings (blue, pink and angel white)+ to the DP - hope you can tell from this picture (on the flowers, stars, shoes and wings - the fairy on the DP was white otherwise). The flash reflected against the Shimmerz - so it was a little bit difficult to get a good shot of this card this hour (it's pitch black dark here in Sweden).
