All Stitched Up...

Morning all my bloggy friends. Today begins a brand new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time and I am totally excited about featuring this great little fairy designed by the talented and eclectic Ike.

I do hope you will pop over to One Stitch At A Time and play along with us in this week's theme - 
"Stitch It, Faux or Real." 

Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps 

Make sure to pop over to get all the details on entering our challenge! 

Here is my little creation using  Ike's  digi stamp called " Fairy "...

Fussy cutting seems to have become one of my go to techniques lately... 
I think with a fussy cut raised on pop dots just makes the image... yes, I must say it... "pop" (smile)

I decided since this little fairy is so delicate that she would go wonderfully with these pastels I pulled from my  paper stash... and I think it worked quite well... don't you?

Supplies Used:
DP - My Mind's Eye "Totally Girl" paper stack; American Crafts textured white card stock; Recollections white card stock. Accessories - Memory Box "Elegant Scroll" die #98153; IamRoses pale yellow hydrangea  paper flowers; 6mm ivory flat back pearls from wholesale distributor; Prisma artist grade colored pencils; faux stitching Micron Pigma pen .01 in black; Making Memories dual tip awl and embossing tip tool.

Hi Beth, thanks so much for stopping by and your sweet comment on my blog. Your blog is so darn cute with all these little "in motion" gadgets. Love this card, the color combo, and how you've "popped" the image. Hoping to be back at it come August. I'm so missing everyone and playing in my craft room. Will be back to visit again soon. "Hugs"
This works really well, so pretty.
Thanks for joining us over on ATCs & Fat Pages With Attitude.
