Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I was SO happy to get to my creating desk yesterday!! It's been a longgggggg weekend. I won't get into it but I've been caring not only for usual crew =) my two kiddies, fab hubby, one very energetic dog, but also two baby Robins (since last Thursday)!! Don't ask. Unfortunately, one of the two passed this morning =( He was simply too tiny for this world despite all of our efforts. But it has been busy considering they eat 35-40 meals a day!! =) But I'm thrilled to do it as it's a gift from Mother Nature that she has bestowed upon us for the last two years! Hopefully there will be room at my local (almost an hour away) Wildlife Rescue Center tomorrow so the one remaining Robin can be cared for by professionals, socialized with his own kind and eventually released back into the wild.
And WHOOO boy....I did miss my paper, markers, glitter and embellis!!
So for today's DIVA challenge card I've used Tiddly Inks - Take Me Away. Even though I LOVE nature and all animals, I'm feeling a bit like "Diva" Fairy Fae right wanting to crawl into a beautiful, claw-footed, bubbly tubby right about now!! =)
I did Fae's arrangement in all pinks. I'm so growing to love Monochromatic. Don't get me wrong...my passion is Mixey Matchy but there is something so calming about Monochromatic. No matter what the color!
But I digress. I colored Fae in with my Copic Markers I glazed and glittered up her bubbles and let her dry overnight. I then added a bit of pink Smooch paint in Fizzy.
I carefully trimmed her out getting as close to the bubbles on top as possible without popping too many! ;)
I layered five different pink papers, both designer (MFT, Recollecions and Bazzill) all on top of my 5" squared SU! Shimmery White cardstock cardbase.
The silver glitter paper is self-adhesive foam paper from Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts. I stitched everything down and then pulled the adhesive paper backing off. It sticks like crazy which I love!! And I love the dimension it adds to my main layer!
I added three, self-cut, rolled felt flowers along with a wide, pink, grosgrain bow from PTI. My sentiment "Rinse, Lather, Repeat" is from MFT.
I so hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by mine as well as my fellow Tiddly Inkers! They are all quite spectacular!! Please check out all of today's inspirational pieces and don't forget to leave bits of love!!
I'm super excited to see what you all create for this challenge! It's such a fun one!!!
