Connie-Planting Seeds by Valarie Wade

Today I am showing you what I made using Sweet Pea artist Valarie Wade's
"Planting Seeds" image from plate #118
which you can find by clicking

Supplies used:
stamp from Sweet Pea plate #118
Class A'Peels stickers (words)
various gems and jewels from my stash
Spellbinder die "Lacey Ovales"
Copic markers/airbrushing
Cuttlebug embossing folder "D'Vine Swirl"
cardstock/papers unknown

I masked the pretty fairy and airbrushed a light blue
around her.  Masked oval area and airbrushed darker
blue around edges for contrast.
Colored image with Copic markers and added gems here and there for glitz.
I added some white spots that seem to detract rather than add to the
effect I wanted IMO.
Sometimes the hardest part of making a card is knowing when enough is enough??

This card will go to my little 6 year old granddaughter for her birthday 
as she loves anything glitzy or sparkly.....

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out plate #118 for
even more delightful images by Valarie Wade.
