Fairytales Do Come True

Hello good morning. Today's card is worked using the sketch by my friend Tanja provided for this weeks challenge over on the Friday Sketcher blog. It was so much fun work with all my new Magnolia Fairytale papers. Remember if you like the patterns too… don’t pass out on the opportunity to order those.. cause Magnolia does not re-pint them. It happened to me with the Yummy Collection papers. I thought i would wait until i have more to buy and by the time i was ready i heard that the peach papers can no longer be ordered.

I think there is not much to tell you about my card.. except.. i usually do not color the hair on my girls with white spots. I have always color on them.. however it was the first time i tired water coloring black hair.. so i started out with Scattered straw i thought that would look nice for the hightlight’s but that did not work out. So i covered it all up with Going Grey and Basic Grey, than i added my highlights with some Copic Opaque white.

Stamps: Tilda holding apple
papers all though Sir Stampalot
Sentiment: Amuse Art Stamps
Coloring: Stampin up and Tim Holtz ink refiller
Embellishments: Flowers (Sir Stampalot), lace from stash, Wild Wasabi ribbon (Stampin up),
Tools: Nestabilities (Oval petite, Label) Martha Stewart double arched border – my newest purchase at Michaels :-)
