the little things featuring "A Day for Daisies" digital stamp

Can you believe another month has gone by and it's time again for the challenge at Lily Pad Cards that uses Kathy's latest color palette?  Here it is:


The Design Team got to choose a digital stamp from a wonderful site called "A Day for Daisies".  This one is called Morning Dew Fairy.


supplies: white card stock, vellum, A Day for Daisies digital image, green cardstock and BoBunny flamingo dot for framing, Prismacolor pencils and Memento markers,  Hero Arts CL497 Find Joy, versafine onyx black ink, clear gemstones

The image was printed once on smooth white paper, and twice more on vellum, clear embossing as soon as it came out of the printer, as my printer ink never dries on vellum.  I colored the paper image using Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits to blend, and colored the vellum image on the reverse with Memento markers highlighted with colored pencils.  Then I put the vellum image over the paper one and secured it to the back.  This gives a kind of stained glass look.  I cut just the wing out of the 2nd vellum image to give a little more dimension and added clear gemstones where the dew drops were drawn.  

Please visit Lily Pad Cards to see more of these lovely digital images brought to life by the Design Team!
