Try it out Tuesday - Fantasy DP

Hello ladies!

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).

It's late here so I better go to bed, but if you'd like to play along just upload to PCP or SCS using the keyword "TIOT2"
Natti, natti

Anki she looks fabulous and you certainly have achieved the look you were after.
The paper that i use for copics that i love the most so far is canson manga art boards. one side has the blue lines on it but i just use the reverse for my stamping..
also the blog I like markers is a fabulous place to go for tutorials for both the beginner and more advanced user ..that's where i go..
hope this helps you hun...
huggles Rachxxx
