Week 4: Do You Stack Up Challenge - Patterned Paper

Welcome to week 4 of the Do You Stack Up Challenge.  This week we have two sponsors: Black Leaf Design Solutions and Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

       

This week's challenge is: 
Patterned Paper
Well I have a tonne of that laying around so no problem there!  I used an image from Stitchy Bear called Butterfly Love. I LOVE how this turned out!



I coloured her using the Stampin Up pastels and one of their Aqua Painter brushes, gave such a delicate look to a delicate fairy!

I used papers by Dream Street Papers, so girly aren't they? I used three from the same range, the pink spotty one, a green one for the scalloped circle and I cut the pink flower from a piece of paper too.  I printed the image twice, using only the wings and one of the flowers from the second copy.  I coloured the wings the same but added some fairy dust (!) to give her some sparkle!  I curled the ends of the wings and raised the ends of the wings up on dimensionals and offset them, I really like the look.


A bit more of a close up of those wings.

So hop on over to the DYSU blog to check out all the other creations and then load up your masterpiece!
