Fairy Wishes to You

Happy Friday Friends....while I hope you are all enjoying your day....I have my nose in my book studying away....gearing up for my CPA exam next week Wednesday (which I am starting to get nervous for)!  Tomorrow I am taking a break from studying and am heading to the spa with my sister for some much needed relaxation time....hopefully it helps my brain relax so that it remembers all of the pertinent info for next Wednesday!

Today I have LOTS of crafty fun that I get to share with you!
First: you NEED to head over to the SCACD Blog....today my DT Sister Elaine is showcasing another sneak peek of one of the newest stamps designed by Sylvia Zett for SCACD....are you as excited as I am for the up coming release of these cuties?!


Second:...while you are checking out Elaine's stunning work.....if that isn't enough excitement (her work is drop dead gorgeous)... I hear there is BLOG CANDY to be won too...so make sure you sign up!


Finally:  If all of that wasn't enough to make you want to faint.....today Susana has another SURPRISE!!!  That's right we have a SURPRISE stamp release to share with you all!  SCACD has a WHOLE NEW LOOK....I have the honor of introducing you to Tulipa which is a part of the Fall Flora Fairies Collection by SCACD Stamp Co.
These fairies are absolutely darling...I can't get enough of them!  For my card I have used papers from the Brand NEW Bo Bunny Garden Girl Collection.  Fairy Wishes sentiment is from the Emerald Fairy Sentiment Set that Susana has in stock at SCACD....this sentiment set goes PERFECT with the fall flora fairies being released today!
Of course I colored this cutie with my Copics.  Along with my black pastel pencil I also used a gray and white pastel pencils for shading and highlights.  Image was cut out using my SB Labels 14 die, and while it was left in the die I airbrushed the sky with my Copic ABS.  If you look closely you will see I used some beautiful purple glitter to accent my sentiment.  This was so easy to add with the help of my TonerTex Pen.  The pearl star in the upper right hand corner of the picture is from Wild Orchid.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and arrangement consists of a 40mm Curly Wild Rose, 25mm Wild Roses, Cherry Blossom, Sweetheart Blossoms, Gypsophilas, 8mm Semi-opened Roses, Purple Stamens, and a small sequin butterfly.  Flowers have been sparkalized with my Diamond Stickles.  Edge has been punched with a MS punch and accented with Self adhesive rhinestones.
For this angle you can see all the sparkles!  Tulipa has been glamorized to the max!  I've used Star Dust Stickles on her wings as well as the butterfly.  Then I took my Crystal Glamour Dust Paint and coated the pink parts on her dress....seriously if you haven't gotten this paint yet what are you waiting for!  It's so easy to use, dries quickly, and gives amazing sparkle and color!

Now head -->HERE<-- to go and purchase your very own Fall Flora Fairies!  For our friends over seas you can purchase these beauties from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, -->HERE<--.  Happy Shopping and I hope you fully enjoy your weekend!
