All this tooth wiggling inspired my card this week. I took a page from Wendy's book over at SugarPea Designs. I asked both of my girls what they thought the Tooth Fairy looked like. I tried to mesh their two descriptions together. Funny enough, they both told me that they thought she wore a blue dress. (I am wondering if Duane Johnson's costume in the Tooth Fairy movie swayed their thinking.)
I absolutely adore this stamp set! The set comes with options. She can be a tooth fairy, a birthday fairy, or just a cute fairy. I was a little scared when I started. I have not had any classes, and am learning how to color with Copics as I go. Hair scares me! And, now WINGS scare me! I wanted them to appear transparent.
I decided to approach the wings the way I approach hair. Lightest to darkest, starting with coating them in Colorless Blender. I'm pretty happy with them for a first attempt. I used the Hearts Journal Card die set by SPD for the little heart embellishment. And I was really pleased with myself for creating a boarder of teeth, using the Fairy Sweet Stamp set by SPD! Ava told me I was a little early with this card, given that she has not actually lost her tooth yet.
I am to the point now in this card making/blog adventure that I find myself thinking about the layout of my next card ALL the time. While doing laundry, cooking dinner, bowling.....you name it! LOL!
And that's what will make this next week or two so hard. We had a flood on our wood floors in our house. The ENTIRE main living area of the house has to be torn up and replaced. (silver lining is that I am getting wood grain TILE!!!!) We have to pack up our entire house, minus the bedrooms!
That limits my card making.
Let's see if I can find a way! You never know!
Oh, and not to be outdone by my daughter, I am entering this in the SPDSS18 Challenge!
