Lauren in Love Fairy Sneak peek

>> Sunday, January 18, 2009

Happy Sunday everyone! Phew. Sunday is my "mom" day where i do all my "mom" duties. Other than the ones i have to do everyday. It's the day I clip my coupons. i do a big grocery shop for the week. Do all laundry that hasnt been done yet. Gather all the stray dishes and do them. Put all the groceries away and tidy up the cupboards that have gone array. You know... mom stuff.

But after i got all that done, i put the baby down for a nap and convinced Jack he needed to play with daddy. So i made this card using "Lauren in Love", one of the fairies soon to be released from Paper Makeup Stamps.

First, here's the card...



A little background on the stamp itself. She is from the fairy line of Beautiful Day Fairies done by one of my WONDERFUL illustrators. Her name is Diem so Beautiful Day is a play on her name. In Vietnamese, Diem means "beauty". In Latin, it means "day". So we decided to combo it into Beautiful Day Fairies. :) They are all so pretty. I'm super stoked about them.

Jack (who will be 3 in just a little over a month, ack!) Named my fairies for me. I asked him what their names should be. He named them after his 3 favorite girl friends. Jack just LOVES his friend Lauren. They bicker like an old married couple sometimes, but he's in love. If she tells him to use his fork (and she will!) he'll use his fork. If i tell him, he looks at me and pushes it off the table. *sigh* Since this fairy it's sprinkling hearts to the ground, I decided on Lauren in Love. Isnt she sweet?

More deets on the card... I colored her with copics (bet ya coulda guessed that!) but i've been playing with my method a wee bit since i'll be teaching copic classes soon! And i've decided i want every single color ending in a 0 or a 1! Yep, it's my new favorite way of coloring with them. :)

I added lots of shimmer to the card using spicas which is always hard to see, but i tried my best to get an angel of light that you can see the super shimmer-i-ness of the card.

it's not full justice to the shimmer, but it's a start.

Thanks again for stopping by! I love to hear your comments and feedback! Thanks so much!
