Compendium of Curiosities Week 7 and Gingersnap Creations' Color Challenge - Yellow, Orange, and Red. For Linda's challenge, we were to use Tim Holtz's Tinted Vision Fragments technique (shown on page 55 of his Compendium of Curiosities book). The Gingersnap color challenge took me out of my box, 'cuz I rarely use orange outside of Hallowe'en, LOL!
Anyway, for this card, I used a beautiful fairy image from Oxford Impressions' Fairy Sweets plate, which I colored with Copics, and trapped her inside a round fragment, using Currant and Cranberry alcohol inks for the technique. The flowers in the foreground are Magenta's Dogwood Bloom, and the clear embossed ones in the background are from Close to My Heart (the Treasure Life set, which was a special one month... don't know if it's still available). The other background stamps I used are from the Glitz Design "Distressed" set. I used lots of Distress Inks (scattered straw, mustard seed, wild honey, spiced marmalade, and fired brick). A touch of Diamond Stickles went in the middle of the dogwoods for a little fairy sparkle. Hmmmm.. I guess that's it. I gotta tell ya, I had tons of fun using these warm, bright colors - way outside my box, but I had fun out there, tee hee!
Hope you're having a crafty weekend!
