Quad-Color Fairy


I got inspiration for the colors of this card from a group of prismacolor pencils that happened to 'group together' on my desk when I was creating a different card the other day. I glanced down at what appeared to be Sage Shadow, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie & Ruby Red and thought those colors could make a neat card. When I sat down to make it, I decided to throw in some black for POP. I was real pleased with how this turned out (but before it had the top panel, there was a sentiment from the Enchanted Fairies set by Artful Inkables, which I stamped crooked). When I showed it to my DH, he said, 'I think it would look better if you had a panel on the top too' and I said, hmmm...'I think you're right then I can cover up the crooked sentiment!' Then a better card was born!

I absolutely LOVE coloring these fairies! Check out my brads from 7 Kids College Fund - they are by American Crafts Cherry (which I thought would match Purely Pomegranate but match Ruby Red more) & Carrot (which match Pumpkin Pie wonderfully!) I'm always bummed Stampin' Up! doesn't carry all 48 colors in brads so now I think I'm on a quest for them where I can get them.

Wowzer! This is fabulous! Way cool that your DH helped you create an even more amazing card than your original--I love it when they are helpful like that. When mine finally realized that I am serious about this hobby and not going to stop shoving cards under his nose every night, he actually began truly looking and even giving me input at times! How neat! Congrats on a most beautiful creation--I'm so glad those prismacolor pencils were laying in that order, what a wonderful color combo! Love it, tfs!

What a precious card!!! Love this sweet fairy and your color combo is just perfect for her!

Totally agree with you on the brad thing...it's so frustrating how they discontinue some really great stuff at times. I need to go check out this new little gem of a site you found...TFS!
