Double challenge card-TECC64 and Color Throwdown


Hi Everyone and Happy Sunday. Today I'm showing you my absolutely favorite stamp. The first time I saw this at About Art Accents, I knew I had to have it. She really makes me sing, and I hope you see why.  This is my first try at Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge and I think I'm going to become a regular. The challenges are great. I paired this up with this weeks Color Throw down which is basic gray, ruby red and baja breeze. This combination has now replaced my previous favorite of teal, black and white. So on with the show.

The sketch at Taylored Expressions is:

For the sketch, I decided to go very simple so I could show off the amazing beauty of the Tiptoe Fairy. I colored her to match the throw down challenge and I think she turned out beautifully.
For this wonderful fairy, I used red glitter for her tutu and wings. I also used some coal shimmerz on her wings to give them just a little more magic. I colored her in using a few Le Plume markers, and since I've been doing a fair bit of coloring, I think I am going to take the Copic Plunge.


Supplies:
stamps: About Art Accents-Tiptoe Fairy Just-Rite 2 5/16 round with roman font
Nestabilities: Circle and Scalloped Circle
Paper: Card stock- PTI White, SU Basic gray, Ruby Red, Baja Breeze, Cosmo Cricket red patterned paper, SU Green Tea design paper.
Accessories: Smokey Gray Satin ribbon, Clear EP, Beadz Red glitter
Coloring agents: Versafine Onyx Black, Le Plume Markers, Coal Shimmerz
Tools: Purple Cows 2 in 1 Trimmer, SU Ticket Corner punch Big Shot

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy Crafting
