A Fairys' Wish

I have to say that the Digital Tuesday Challenge log has the most wonderful and talented sponsors. This week we have a brand new sponsor and boy...I was not disappointed. The images are awesome!!!

Spesch Designer Stamps are our new sponsor and they are offering this weeks winner 3 digital images of their choice.

Oh My Gosh...The DT had the chance to choose one of the digital images to play with and I had the hardest time choosing. They are all so wonderful.  Not only does Spesch sell digital images, they also have clear and rubber stamps. There is not one stamper out there who could not find something to their liking, no matter what their favorite type of stamp to use.

This weeks challenge is "It's a Magical World", so go ahead and use you fairies, gnomes, dragons, unicorns...any "magical" image you have.

I chose to use "Loves Me Not" by Sylvia. Since I couldn't choose I had to purchase a couple more which I hope to play with really soon.

I chose to use nice pastel colors and sparkling/glitter designer paper. To match, I added some dazzling diamond glitter to the border of the top layer and to the image.

I always have a problem with my yellow copics smudging the ink when using a digital image. That is why you will see my digital images always have brown, not blond hair, lol. To prevent that from happening here, I dabbed the marker instead of using a feathering or circular stroke. It worked perfectly.

I used the Stampin' Up sentiment "Wish big" on the inside. Instead of adding something small in the center of the inside front, I added some of the sparkly vellum. So pretty.

Good luck with the challenge. The winner will be one superbly happy stamper!

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge: spots and dots
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle: spring has sprung
Secret Crafter: for a female and have flowers on it
One Stitch At A Time: glitter and gems
Cupcake Craft Challenge: up in the air
Paper Playtime: choose one of 3 challenges, I chose "use pink and glitter"
