Scrapping for Less ~ Sketch Challenge #3 ~ SFL New Release Winter Fairies

Hello there crafty friends! 
Happy New Year!! Today, I'm so excited to share the January challenge over at Scrapping for Less: Show & Share!! This month's challenge is a sketch challenge, but it's also a special day because Scrapping for Less is having their very first release this month (outside of the card kits) and I was honored to once again collaborate with Teresa on the illustrations!! I am so excited to finally be able to share this little secret! And even more excited to share a card using one of the stamp sets along with the gorgeous papers being released!

Let's check out Sketch Challenge #3...

A fun little sketch to get you inspired! Now, let's check out the card I created using this fun sketch along with the new Winter Fairies stamp set and the Winter in Pink papers...

Eeeep! Isn't she the cutest?! I love fairy stamps and this one has a wonderful winter feel that can be used for the Holidays or just for some sweet wintry cards! I stamped the sweet fairy with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored her in with the following copic markers:

Skin ~ E000, E00, E21
Hair ~ E23, E37, E47
Eyes ~ B000, B00, B02
Wand - Y000, Y13, Y35
Clothes ~ N0, N1, RV0000, RV10, RV11, YG000, YG11, YG61

Once I was all done coloring, I fussy cut the fairy and cleaned up the edges with a Memento tuxedo black marker. I set her aside and stamped the sentiment... A Warm Fairy Hello... and trimmed down the paper and mat it with a scrap of the patterned paper. I cut my patterned papers and used a corner rounder punch on the snowflake paper. I adhered the papers together and then adhered them to a white card base using a liquid glue.

 I then die cut an oval out of white card stock, trimmed the one edge and then lightly blended a few pink clouds using the Mini Cloud Edges stencil by My Favorite Things along with the Spun Sugar distress ink. I left a white edge around the oval by masking the outer edge with a large post it note. I love the softness it gives the clouds behind the fairy. I then adhered the oval to the card and popped up the fairy using foam squares. I adhered the sentiment to the card and to finish it off, I added a few pretty pearls from my stash... even adding a couple to the fairy's hat. 

Here's one more look at the card... I just love how this turned out! I hope that you do too!

This challenge will run from today, January 1st and will end January 31st at 11:59pm EST.  The winner will be announced on Saturday, February 1st in the challenge album!! Please use #sflsketchchallenge3 in any social media posts when playing along with the challenge.
