Flutterby Wednesday #137, Sketch By Carly.

Today's Flutter By Wednesday challenge is a great sketch by Carly. She's got some great sketches on her blog, so make sure you check her out! Head to the Flutter By Wednesday to see what the other Fluttering team members came up with! Or click on their names to the right side of my blog! You'll be happy to see what they've made too! We hope you play along as well. Follow the sketch, make sure to include a fairy, butterfly, or angel on card and link it back on the Flutter By Wednesday blog. We look forward to seeing your creations!

I have to say, I'm so excited with how this card turned out! My MIL had given me a gift card to All That's Scraps for Christmas and I've been eyeing Coriander for the longest time! I grabbed her and so glad I did. She's so much fun to color. I love how she's sitting! I paper pieced her in an odd manner. I found Glimmer Mist Crown Jewels at AC Moore. I sprayed her wings in pearl, and her dress in Black Cherry. Than on a third image, I layered the wings first on the third image, colored her hair and body in copics cut them out, layered them on the image, than put her outfit on top of that layer. The paper is Genevieve which is a retired pack from TAC. Sadly, I only have scraps left now. And check out her green hair! So happy with that, cuz that's so hard for me to pull off! I even sprayed the magenta flowers in glimmer mist. They were white to begin with. Than she's topped of with stickles and so are my flowers. I embossed the center oval after cutting it out with my nestie. The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio's Fairy set.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to play along!
