PagesPat's Ponderings

I'm so excited!  I finally got a chance to play with my new stamps from Sweet Pea Stamps!!  The first one to dry was Ching Chou Kuik's "In The Wind".  She looks like she was in need of a little down time, so flew up high into the night sky to be alone with her thoughts.

In the Air by Ching Chou Kuik
 I wish i could do the same.  The last week has been rough, taxing my patience and my energy.  Lots of family issues and health concerns.  But tonight I took that necessary ME time to relax and color in my craft room, and went so far as to make a card.  First one this week!
So I used a combination of Copics and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color my thoughtful fairy.  Some Stickles to give her a little shimmer and she was ready to be framed with my Epic Six die cutting machine and one of my newest dies from Spellbinders, Lacey Ovals.
I decided on a shaped card tonight, so picked out some leftover papers from my stash and added a bit of teal-colored webbing, a flower and some tiny jewels.  A bit of Tim Holtz distressed Ink in dusty rose and some stickles on the card edges and I was done!
The Sweet Pea February challenge asks for a card made with craft paper, so I won't enter this one if their challenge, but I have more new stamps to play with, so i'm sure I'll get to play for a smack at a $10 gift certificate from them.
Meanwhile, I have entered this card into the following challenges:
anything with wings
anything with wings
