To My Beautiful Friend!!

Okay so todays post is added to a previous post...why you ask well i added an accent to the cheeks on the junebug fairy (below) and i used an acrylic white paint and an old stylus to apply it well i no longer need to do this i just went in search of a white gel pen and came up with this.I found it at Micheal's and used my 50% off coupon and paid only $3 for it.It is a paint pen and as you can see at the end it tells what kind of tip is on it i picked ultrafine but you can get them from calligraphy to thick to medium to fine and to ultra-fine.This is currently my favorite pen ever. I would say that this is a must have in every cardmaker's life.
I can think of sooooo many friends i want to give this to and i have someone in mind.She lost her cousin to cancer and what a mean fight he fought and i wasn't here when it happened.This stamp set comes as a set of 2 Junebug Fairies and sentiments and accesories.My middle girl and I will be watching more tutorials online to learn how to use the copics.The hardest part for me is trying to find out where the light comes in on the image. So i stamped her using my tuxedo black memento ink pad,and i colored her with copics.I kept this card very simple.The cardstock is Bazill and the Patterned Paper is by October Afternoon.I used my square nestabillities as well as my scalloped square nestabillity for the first card is 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 and it should have been 6x6 . I really had to squeeze in that sentiment.I also edged distressed the edges of the OA pattern paper.
I added stickles , glossy accents,and acrylic paint for the cheeks...put some gems and buttons down and since I am a simple person I left it this way.
Hope you are Having a Great Day!!

Phebe, your cards amaze me!! If these are simple, then my are purely plain :o). I haven't made anything or even scrap booked all summer. Maybe in the fall when the new routines begin.

As I stop by and read, I'm beginning to understand more of the "lingo" too. So fun and interesting!
