Diane's Sunday Sketch Challenge Card

I really wanted to play along with Diane's Challenge this week but I don't have the stamp set so.....I picked another stamp set and followed her guidelines.

Here is my card for Diane's latest sketch challenge;

For this card I used Fairy Nice (one of my favourite SU! sets!) for the main image and greeting, Canvas and Dots & Daisies for the background. I used Basic Black, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery ink as well as my Signo white gel pen. I made the card base from White, and added a layer of Bashful Blue and a strip of Certainly Celery card stock.

I coloured in the fairy with markers and watercoloured Bashful Blue around her to give her some definition. I added some "fairy dust" to her wand, wings and skirt (really it's Dazzlin Diamonds from SU!).

I wasn't sure what to do about matting the main image so I simply used another layer of white. It may sound kind of strange but it does look nice and crisp and gives the impression of dry embossing.
Here's a close up of the glitter and double white layers.

I can't wait to see what the others come up with!


  1. Your card turned out great, Marie!I'm so gad you decided to play even though you didn't have the Pretty Princess set. This was a terrific substitute!

  2. A very cute card. I had not seen this stamp set adorable.

  3. I LOVE your glitzy little fairy! So pretty.
