Good Tuesday morning, peeps!!
Today, I've got a card for you for two challenges. First, there's a paper piercing challenge over at Milk Coffee Challenge and a DT call too. I haven't paper-pierced in so long! They've got some really cute digi stamps. Unfortunately, I ran out of ink so I couldn't print up any of their freebies going on right now. Make sure you get yours here! Otherwise, I've got a couple of Milk Coffee cards here and here.
I've forgotten the beauty you get from a paper-pierced image. I always thought you lose dimension, but now you can add that with similar-toned copics/ ink. Here, I combined this challenge with the Ombre challenge going on at Some Odd Girl.
I really love this Wild and Free line from Glitz Design. There are a lot of ombre elements here -- that feather PL card is captivating, and her wings, dress, flowers, and shoes are from the same line. I made sure to paper pierce exactly where the ombre part would show on her wings and dress. The mint background paper is from Dear Lizzy. I added some lace and washi and pearls for a feminine feel. I've also created some ombre waves in her hair. The image and sentiment are from SOG's Fairy Magic, and it's my first time using her.
The card and image are pretty meaningful as I had just come back from the land of Magic -- Orlando and its Walt Disney World and Universal's Harry Potter Land. I also attended the Magnet Conference for nurses and its theme was the "Magic of Magnet." :)
Hope you have a truly magical day!
