Sparkle and shine at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey Peeps!

I really got stuck when i was going to make a card for todays challenge over at WhoopsiDaisy. I really don`t know what i was thinking when i chose images for the challenge, lol. I was caught up in the love for the new sheet Linnie posted in her shop and i forgot what the challenge was all about, lol. I just had to have this sheet!!!! So now i had to make a sparkle and shine card, lol. Not easy to do with images that are supposed to be used as accents, hahaha. So i just had to look through my collection of Linnie Images and i found this sweet little fairy girl on sheet #180. And i thought she might be perfect to add to my creation

I actually started with an ordinary 6x6" card but it didn`t work at all, so i had to try a stepcard instead. I moved the embellies back and forth several times and decided it looked really weired. I had to draw up the grass in front by hand and coloured it and then cut it out. I also had some other images i cut up and used some bits and parts here and there to make a scene. I still think it looks a bit weired but i don`t have any more time to do it all over again so this just have to do. Luckely you don`t see all the mistakes that i see, hahahaha.

This little fairy girl is just the most adorable ever. And i coloured her up with these colours:
Primrose, Buttercup, Pastel yellow

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Lipstick red, Gold, Sunflower, Yellow. Satin, Putty, Tan, Cinnamon.

Forrest green, Bright green, Lime green, Lime Zest

Walnut, Terracotta, Pumpkin

For all the grass and trees i mixed with these colours:
Pine, forrest green, Bright green, Lime green, Lime zest.

For the beautiful fence i used:
Walnut, Terracotta, Spice, Honeycomb.

The butterfly i created myself. I just love these butterflies. They are so easy to make. A couple of minutes and then they are finished.

Behind the flowers you can see one of my new dies. It is a Marianne die. And i think it looks really beautiful. I am just loving my new Big Shot, lol. My hubby is going to have a fit when he hears how much i have to spend on dies, lol.

Here is a closeup of my homemade grass, lol. I also put in some tiny flowers. I think i like it, lol. Hope you like my creation. Thanks for looking.

For et flott kort, skikkelig nydelig landskap og perfekt fargelagt.

Jeg håper dette er greit, men jeg vil bare gi deg en liten tilbakemelding ang. bloggen din:
Den laster veldig seint hos meg, og jeg tror det er pga. bakgrunnen og skriften. I tillegg vil jeg bare si at jeg sliter veldig med å lese bloggen din, nettopp fordi bakgrunnen forstyrrer veldig for teksten, og fontene du har brukt er veldig pene, men vanskelige å lese på skjerm og i lengre tekster. Jeg sier kun ifra fordi jeg vil fortsette å følge deg, og kanskje du ikke visste dette. :)

Klem, Anne.

WOW vilket sagolikt vackert kort :D Helt underbart...

Anne said...

Mulig det ble litt bedre nå, men den blir liksom aldri ferdig med å laste, og siden det øverste innlegget ditt er en sticky og jeg vil se på det under, så må jeg vente lenge før jeg klarer å bla ned.
