Stamps R Us Challenge - There was a Little Girl

Today over at Stamps R Us, the "There Was a Little Girl" challenge is being sponsored by A Day For Daisies digital images.  OMYGOSH!  Tammy Thompson, the artist, has some beautiful delicate images.

For this challenge, I used the Little Nymph image and colored her with Copics.  I added some diamond Stickles to her wings and some sponged clouds before cutting out with one of the Labels dies from Spellbinders.  Below that, I used another label die with some Paper Trey designer paper & stenciled/sponged/embossed the edges before popping up for dimension.  All designer papers are from Paper Trey's Guide Lines pack, which I'm hoarding, lol.  I used garden green and Pale Plum cardstock before finishing off with some green satin ribbon and some pale green pearls.
Whatcha Think?

While I was at it, I also made a couple of other cards using the A Day for Daisies digital images.

I keep going back there every day to pick out more and more, lol.
Both of these were colored with Copics as well.  I added some diamond Stickles to the Pixie's wings.  Basic Grey designer paper on the card on left while I used the same Guide Lines papers from Paper Trey for the one on the right.

These were so yummy to color up.  I have 4 others colored that need to find their way into a card, so expect to see a few more later this week.

Thanks for stopping by - You know I LOVE to hear what you have to say, so please leave a comment.
Have a great day!

Hi Colette,
I love all of your cards. The images from "A day for daisies" are delightful. I am so impressed by your shading. I find that shading is my greatest challenge. Right now I am working with Tombo watercolour markers but am not getting results anywhere like yours. Just colour me green!
